  1. Love it how the seller sounds proud it’s sat on 30 year old tyres. I’d want 5 new rubber for that price! Lol
  2. Shame about the lack of description though!
  3. I’ve only got to type in Opel Manta on google image search and a picture of my red hatch (pre getting it back in the road) comes up. It’s because google can search through forums that are public to get you what you want.
  4. I reported them loads of times and got bored of it. If eBay can’t sort it out then why should we bother. I’ve got a feeling whoever is doing it are hacking genuine accounts to do it.
  5. You need some of that flexible stuff, can’t remember what’s it’s called .......
  6. Brakes and welding, not a massive job then!
  7. I’ve not yet had a problem with my XE fuel pipes. I fitted it in 2012 and used all metal pipes down the chassis and modern rubber hose to join. I have however replaced a snapped engine mount today haha. Good to know you can still get bits for these engines too
  8. Coupe tanks and hatch tanks are totally different shapes. You’d have a lot of work fitting a coupe tank to a hatch, it’d be easier to buy an aluminium race tank and fit that. I keep meaning to go to my local fuel tank specialist to see if he can remake a hatch tank in aluminium but I stupidly sold my spare tank that I could have used as a guide.
  9. Small repair to nearside A pillar below check strap mount. Didn’t take a before picture, but there were holes everywhere. Small patch fitted. Rest of holes welded up. Not a pretty job but can be dressed later.
  10. Mine was still spongy but it’s worth a shot. It’s odd that the pedal goes firm but gives little effort at the rear. If air was in the system it would be soft or spongy pedal.
  11. I had a similar issue on a series 3 109 ambulance. Couldn’t get the pedal to go hard after replacing two brake pipes. Get a G clamp. Clamp the rear wheel cylinders fully shut then bleed the brakes again. Do it for both sides. Report back what happens. 9 months out of action my series was. New rear flexi, 6 new brake pipes, new master cylinder, re-routed pipes, new cylinders, new drums n shoes, counless pressure bleeds, swear words and heart ache and all it needed was the cylinders clamping shut.
  12. Yes, usually in that SAFE place we all have 😂
  13. All sorted now, I had one in a takeaway tub full of bits n bobs from the last one I broke up.
