    Hi everyone, 

    My name is Bruce from Westbury Wiltshire and I have just agreed to purchase a pair of South African 1972 Manta A's. One is a running driving car, the other is a bit more of a parts car.

    I don't have any pics yet but plan on taking lots of pics or even videoing the lives of these cars.

    I used to own a Manta B lhd 1.3 engined GT/J when I lived in Germany in the early 2000s which I upgraded to a 1.8 and 5 speed box before its untimely demise in an accident. 

    I plan to use all the best bits to keep the runner at its best and maybe turn the parts car into a restomod as it has soooo many original parts missing.

    Any help and advice will be gratefully received. I am a mechanic of over 30 years and now teach mechanics to the military so I know my way around a workshop but not the Manta A specifically. 





    Welcome Bruce. If you have 30 years experience as a mechanic I will be coming to you for help and advice.

    That's very good of you !

    I think Sean is sorting me out but if it doesn't happen for some reason I will be in touch.

    Thanks !

    I don’t think I will be “sold out” any time soon. Message me if and when you need them.


    Sorry @TheRealExilei’ll post yours tomorrow.

    If it's an absolute show stopper for you I could help with the Carpet from my black coupe as that at least a coupe of years away from starting. can't with other bits as I still don't have anything collected .


    That’s a very generous offer @Jessopia74especially as you will actually need it yourself - even if that is a few years down the line. @MrCarlosmay have a dark tan carpet that would suit my car but if that doesn’t work out I’ll be back in touch.

    What putting you at a dead stop currently mate? 

    I don’t want to fit door glass and winders until I have door checks - better access.

    Roof lining needs to be in before front and back windscreens.

    Easier to fit dashboard top before front windscreen.

    Carpet needs to be in before seats.

    ………. and similar issues under the bonnet but these are V8 related.

  6. It’s never going to be an exact science with so many options at play. The number of permutations is mind boggling. Good luck with whatever you do @Snowy.

    These forums are a great place to learn, sometimes from other peoples mistakes. Bolting a variety of parts together is always going to be “Trial and Error” after all. 

    So long as all the clearances checkout it shouldn’t go BANG! 🤞

    PS. (And disclaimer) I don’t know what I’m talking about.
