  2. Not sure how this is plumbed inside the block, but could be adapted for a high spec 4 Cylinder CIH engine or make up a replicar with copper pipe...... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vauxhall-Opel-Lotus-Carlton-Omega-Engine-Oil-Spray-Rail/202876336972?hash=item2f3c5f3b4c:g:ndsAAOSwxR1eG6me

  4. Running 3.0 straight six engine and box with free 'Viva body shell'... unusual engine swop....would be better in a larger Ventora... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vauxhall-viva-3-0-litre-straight-six-hot-rod-sleeper-road-rally-mot-tax-exempt/133308634396?hash=item1f09d0551c:g:fD0AAOSwctxeIzey
  5. Looks good to me, maybe someone who has fitted a 400 kit help David out with advice....assume the rears and side skirts can be bonded to the car...last time I did something similar I used fibre glass...
  6. On ebay x 2 listings...plus loads other cars/bikes for sale....😮 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1986-Opel-manta-gte-2-0i/333484419300?hash=item4da53868e4:g:RvIAAOSwfl1eIwJb
  7. The disklok is the only non rusty metal (and headlight surround!) part on the car!
  8. have a look for the rear wheel spacers to fit manta axle....easy to make up....
  9. The tool I mention above is very quick due to wide drum, have a look at the numerous you tube vids...I find wire brushes scratch the surface too much on body panels, but fine for heavier suspension componenets.....
  10. Saving up for one of these.....cheaper direct from USA.... https://www.frost.co.uk/ew-contour-sct/ .......But understand aircraft spec paint stripper is still the best stripper available...but need protective gear to wear...

  12. Following this project should help all those with an unfinished manta in the garage..... maybe me too...
  13. Cheaper than a 2.7 conversion, especially if you already have a Rover V8 fitted... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/TVR-5-0Ltr-Top-hatted-Cross-bolted-short-engine/184081578761?hash=item2adc1dfb09:g:rygAAOSwrrld9MVT
