  1. I'll agree with you on that Mike, to me that car wouldn't stand a chance, even in looks against a MANTA 400, but there again that is only the opinion of an 87 year old man!!!!

  3. I'd be loathed to put that engine back in the car where it will get all dirty again, It would look nice sitting on the sideboard in the best room in the house!! This is what my Father would call "Professionalism at it's Best"
  4. You should be really proud of what you have achieved with the car Andy, in all the years that I have been involved with the trade, never once did I ever attempt a paint job, many times since I have wished that I had, to late now though!! so you can hold your head up high mate, like a few other club members who have done wonderful work with their Mantas,Oh! I nearly forgot to mention Cavaliers too.So get driving and show the world what you have achieved!.
  5. Message sent today Saterday.. Julian.

  9. I do not smoke but have just discovered, after 12 nyears!! that there isn't a fag lighter in my Cavvy, and I amabout to fit a dash cam, I don't want a new lighter , so if anyone has one that they will sell me please contact me. Many thanks, Diolch yn Fawr. Julian. I should have mentioned that it is the socket I need not the plug, for sme reason it was taken out.

  11. I have a couple of oil filler caps here, both are off manta 1.9 CIH engines, late 1970 cars. but I wouldn't know if they are what you are looking for. a photo would help.
  12. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/304147887829?hash=item46d0a076d5:g:AfkAAOSwrQlhQiCb I can't remember who i was, but some one was looking for a pair of these not long ago.
  13. It's back on EBAY, He's going to have it MOT TESTED.
  14. I found out this morning that VAUXHALL (GREENS) OARTS have them in stock, they contacted me today. cost is £1.50 each that's including postage. £15 for ten. Why can't we edit any spelling mistakes any more? OARTS IS SUPPOSED TO BE PARTS!!
  15. Ive been trying to look back on ebay, there is something about this car that is odd, I am sure it was on ebay a while back, and the bidding went up to a few grand, but then taken off. Maybe someone with a bit more computer knowledge than me ( and that wouldn't have to be a lot!!) can find it.

  17. Looks like that the only solution to this is to use self tappers to fit it, like drill through the rugger strip and bury the head of the self tappers in the rubber.
  18. Will you message me your email so that I can send you a photo? Please. I can't think of any other way to do it. Julian.
  19. Spent the best part of an hour trying to put a photo on, BUT I AM NOT CLEVER ENOUGH!!! Iis it possible for one of you to send me your email address, so I can send you a photo to put up? asking a lot I know but unable to think of any other way.
  20. Can someone please guide me to an address where I can get those clips that hold the chrome rubbing strips onto the body of my Vauxhall Coupe.
  21. I was looking to get hold of a pair of backplates a couple of years ago, because the hexigan heads of the adjusters had worn round, I failed to find any, so I welded new hexigan heads that I cut of bolts, on to the existing adjusters, PERFECT!!
