  1. Is it 12mm? I didn’t think it was that big.
  2. One of the biggest issues is that E10 is hydroscopic so for a vehicle that’s not been used much and has E10 petrol in it there will be a lot of corrosion on various parts of the fuel system. If you’re storing a car with fuel in it it’s always best to make sure the tank is full. There are additives you can add to E10 to help reduce the damaging affects of it.
  3. Has anyone installed one of these screens? What is the quality like?
  4. Have you tried clicking “Reply to this topic”? Or at the bottom of the posts...
  5. I have these clips - they are listed for Opel (old) and BMW. I’m going to try them on a door card I will be refitting later.
  6. I’m looking for a drivers door handle. Mine is the smooth type, not the ribbed one which is readily available on eBay. Would anyone have such a handle that they are willing to sell?
  7. I’ve had similar problems with the horn on my Manta - I can’t figure it out at all! At one point I had 4 live wires going to them - simply seems to defy the laws of physics!
  8. That's an excellent mod and I think they look great on the A — great into too!
  9. I don't like the look of calipers mounted at 12 O'clock — 9 o'clock or 3 o'clock look fine, this is where most OE calipers are mounted I have a set of Astra G calipers here that I intend to use for a rear disc conversion but I hope to be able to mount them at
  10. Thanks for that — I was guessing it must be some sort of breather hose — but didn't know where it was supposed to go.
  11. I just noticed this length of fuel hose lose in the boot of my 84 GT/E. It looks like an old hose and doesn't have any fuel in it — would it be some type of breather hose? There are clips on the hose but I'm not sure where it should go to — It seems to be coming from some point at the back of the tank on the nearside behind the sender unit. Has anyone any ideas?
  12. Thanks for the info Mike — I think I have located one.
  13. The gaiter on my Manta B has split — has anyone got one in good condition?
  14. Yeah! This one looks far from factory — but for whatever reason it's leaking so time for a new one.
  15. Today I was helping a mate do some work on his 81 Manta B 20S automatic. I noticed the oil cooler was leaking. This oil cooler looks as though it has been patched before and it doesn't look factory to me but I could be wrong. I'm guessing he could replace it with a new universal one quite easily — has anyone any recommendations on a replacement oil cooler? Something like this would probably work.
