  1. Sounds like a perfectly acceptable timescale.
  2. I assumed the base map was to enable you to start up and run the car and not much else. If I’m wrong about that please let me know. Ideally I’d like to make sure it drives around okay and nothing falls off, gets caught, melted or is so badly out of balance the whole trip becomes an expensive waste of time. If it’s okay to drive on the base map I’ll put some miles on over the next couple of weeks and give her a few good shakedown runs to settle everything in.
  3. Welcome @Metalbasher . It looks like you’ve already done a lot of the hard work.
  4. I hear what you’re saying @Manta hatchbut I was already worried about my 20 minute drive to Portsmouth - AP Race Engines sounds the bussiness but they’re just too far away.
  5. It sounds really interesting - Which model TVR?
  6. See if you can message me with attach photos and I’ll upload them for you.
  7. My Manta is currently running on a base map and needs a proper set up on a dyno. (Emerald ECU) I’ve never done this before and need to know what are the essential things to ask for and other desirable things that are worth considering if I can afford it. I assume you pay for the knowledge of the guys and the time you’re actually on the rolling road.
  8. No visible reg so you can’t check even the recent history.
  9. Click on the confused face and it will show you who’s reacted (me) I’m confused about what I was playing at all those years ago changing the servo for one of the same size.
  10. I used a Golf one due to it being smaller. Since then I welded a “dish” into the inner wheel arch and a new front plate into the bulk head and moved the servo further away from the engine. I don’t recall why I went to this much effort; it’s possible the golf one wasn’t man enough and I reverted to the original Manta one or I simply needed even more space.
  11. Yes. Ages. Did other jobs to break up the boredom and just kept going back to it.
  12. Of course it is 🤦‍♂️ Not a kit exactly - I used kitchen scourers on a orbital sander with pink stuff.
  13. I’ll be done with it @Paul Barrettin a few weeks you can have it back if you like. It’s certainly not mint though. I had to resurface it and was I bit heavy handed in a few places 🙄
  14. I’ll measure it when I get home - on my hols till 16th. Original long gone I’m afraid 😟
  15. Mine is from a Mk1 golf. Slightly smaller diameter to clear V8. No noticeable difference in performance. I don’t recall making any modification to the actuator rod.
  16. Didn’t you have windscreen cover? Auto Windscreens are replacing mine beginning of October - I had a 13 week wait while they made some. If your not insured give them a call.
  17. I don’t have a new one I’m afraid @Julian, but I do have a used one you can have if you cover the postage.
  18. I’m interested in these 3 bits if you’ll sell them separately. Message me your price inc postage. Thanks.
  19. Thanks @mantasrme I’ll message you later. I’ve spoken to him @Jessopia74 . He’s got almost everything I need (NOS) if I go for black but I’m still hopeful that I’ll find tan.
  20. That’s a good find @Vince and an interesting colour selection. Ideally I want a tan colour but would make do with black.
  21. Thanks. Send me a message with photos and price. Thanks. Send me a message with photos and price.
  22. Bar a couple of bits of trim it looks complete and original and I would suggest keeping it that way. If it’s a complete rust bucket, and there are plenty of those around (I know - I’ve got one) go crazy and build something special 🤪 I look forward to seeing some more photos when you get your hands on her and will follow your project with interest whichever route you take. Good Luck!
  23. She is looking beautiful!
  24. The motor hardly sticks out at all and the flex in the door card is sufficient to cope with it. I doubt any one will notice it. I cut a smaller hole in the passenger door.
