  1. Dan, can you confirm the NCB situation. I recall many years ago, I had a modified car insured with you, I had full no claims bonus when insuring with you, and when I went to Co-op you provided a letter confirming I had still had full NCB. Is this still the case?

  3. Hi Paul, these are the ones that kicked this off......price of panels...
  4. I believe its true, chap managed to locate his old motorbike using a PD.
  5. I have heard, if you approach a private detective, they may be able to help...

  7. Just as a suggestion, if we share this scheme with European Manta owners, we may get a larger market to sell any new panels...
  8. Apologies, may have got this wrong. On photographs of pukka 400 gearboxes, the remote is further back than this bracket, so ignore the above.....if anyone is fitting a Monza box I can tell you how I shortened the standard remote...
  9. They will look good after a minimal restoration.....
  10. Forgot the link to seller....now added
  11. This will help you fit a 265 gearbox to your Manta, as the std Monza shifter is too far back in the tunnel...although I shortened the remote on mine, this makes the job easier... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/JAGUAR-XJS-XJ6-XJ40-GETRAG-265-262-GEARBOX-SELECTOR-UNIT-REMOTE-CHANGE-EAC7657/224392425532
  12. I imagine if someone offered cash for both panels you would get them cheaper....but as all have said...very very rare panels......Front wings are treated as consumables, less so rear quarters. Luckily found one a skip at a dealers in Devon, and boot lid and a few other manta bits. Left behind 4 noses cones, but as were Chevette ones!!!! Some Ford quarters are selling at £1500 plus..
  13. We can help, who did you email......
  14. Gearbox too, another seller? https://www.shpock.com/en-gb/i/XCtsFhcUrzewH7jP/opel-manta-gte-5-speed-manual-gearbox-getrag

  19. For anyone with a lowered car, you are advised to shorten the link the same amount as the drop...

  21. If I recall, the standard Manta shell rust proofing was't great....Remember doing some preventative work on my 88 Exclusive when it was about 3 years old...under the front arches, found surface rust on A pillar and side bulkead A panel...did some scraping and found Opel had just undersealed straight over bare metal, so much for the dipping shown on the last Manta video! So annoyed I made a complaint to Vauxhalls, to be told don't worry, its covered by a 5 year anti perforation warranty....so spent the next 2 weeks primering the panels and painting with Smooth hammerite.... which has saved my panels...may explain why Exclusives rust away so easily...
  22. And this one, but has several bids? to make it look legit, but £28100! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Astra-GTE-Mk1/124598059475?hash=item1d029f81d3:g:4VcAAOSwK8dgOVnk
