  4. I think a big mistake a lot of people make is to use the whole arch as supplied, rather then just trimming out the corrosion

    GTE clutch

    There is a place n a Leeds that will make any clutch https://clutch-specialists.co.uk
  6. Small cars mate. It is quite surprising how much wider modern vehicles are.
  7. 1st looks like the piazza axle. But for LSD it must be from a manual car. They are also a little narrower iirc 56”. However I think it is the diff compatibility That was appealing
  8. Glass out - as it lips under the rubbers frame lip at front and rear screens.
  9. Everything is for sale at the right price I guess lol
  10. Massive improvement Ian, not that I disbelieved how good that carpet was, but it is very impressive. Added value to the car for sure - job is worth a double 👍👍
  11. Was it a new Opel manta bare shell ? 🤯
  12. Indeed mate, can’t remember off top of my head the size but you can find them as hex drive self tapping tek screws (flanged)

  14. Think swapping to stainless screws would be a worthwhile investment Ian
  15. Are you on Facebook Matthew? There is a great group that do the 16v mods from the 24v head. A couple of great engineers on the group too, that make some really cool additions like cnc cam covers etc 😎 I just hope they never cast an Alu block or I will be all in 😂 https://www.facebook.com/groups/111393065892285/
  16. First time I ever drove a car that had that sort of technology was in Belgium through to Holland. Big Volvo with pilot think it was called. Still needed to touch steering wheel every 30secs or so, but it pretty much drove itself on the windy A roads too! never thought I would like it, but I did lol
  17. I guess the MOT aspect is similar to U.K., however it only changes at 40years old, but no. Plates usually follow the car ( a small few exceptions to thus). So for you, is the old timer number plate withdrawn if your car does not pass it’s periodic inspection?
  18. Seems really odd that it did not have number plates. Was it necessary that they was swapped to the old timer one?
  19. It’s always questionable mate unless was a new none ID shell. If the shell has had to be re stamped, then it’s a ringer in my opinion as it is not a legal thing to do.
  20. Welcome Mathew. sadly 2.4 cranks/blocks/parts are like Unicorns now, very hard to come by. Those 40s are a little on the small side too. 45s are where you need to be when considering the choke size within the carbs. But a well built 2.2 (2.3 oversized ) on 45s will get close to 160 at flywheel. a good thread with some info can be found otherwise if budget will allow there are a couple of companies out there that still supply race built engines, like Risse https://risse-motorsport.de
