  1. Well I have taxed it this morning, first time in god knows how many years. Guess what I will be doing this evening?...as long as its not raining. Ian
  2. Great job and looks like it well be ready for the summer๐Ÿ‘
  3. Looks just like my chicken shed (god knows why the picture has turned sideways)
  4. If you have the ignition lock with key, then you can build up the rest to match, apart from the fuel cap. You need a small collection of old lock barrels so you have a supply of tumblers, then match the tumblers up. Good fun when you get started (how sad am I ). What I did anyway on the GT/J, like I said, I just started with an ignition lock.
  5. Any progress on this one?
  6. Love the way the black underseal is racing up the bodyside from swage line to swage line. A true mark of a 1970's/80's car ๐Ÿ˜€
  7. I remember seeing that car in the UK back in the 1990's
  8. Ive got one sat next to my Manta in my workshop, its a mate of mine and TBH I would never have one. They are a pain in the butt to own and run. They are very complex things for their age and It spends more time on a flat bed than on the road. Head gaskets, turbos, timing chain, coolant leaks....He has a container full of spares just trying to keep it on the road. It even shits itself stood still not moving! Walked in the other day, to find it had dumped all its coolant on the shop floor.
  9. Well I personally feel it made a ridiculous price for that particular car and reckon the new owner may well be disappointed once he/she gets it home. I also think a lot of the current prices are partly to do with Covid to, we can't go on holiday and other restrictions, people are spending their money in other ways. Great for current owners like myself but it just prices out the enthusiast with a limited budget and who likes a good project. I know someone who has started to look on main land Europe for one as the prices are more realistic over there. It also makes loading a rust free A series into a container from the states a better option (i can live with LHD) and something I have started looking at. Ian
  10. After hearing stories of cars sitting in the corner of bodyshops for years waiting completion, I never say 'just do it when you can' and Im very lucky that my bodyman is my best buddy and hates 'old bangers' as he calls them cluttering up his workshop.
  11. Brilliant, just love the story! Good luck with the parts collecting and project. Dave at Mantasport is always good for parts, a chat and advice. I have a roll over jig here in Grantham, which isnt far away and doing nothing now.. Ian
  12. Looking good, enjoying following ๐Ÿ‘
  13. Ive used both and find the spot weld drill bit far easier to use
  14. Another thread I will be following.... I cant get my head round the fact you have two or more projects on the go at once.. especially with the standard you continually turn out. I struggled with just one!
  15. Thanks David, glad you didnt tell me at the time that it was the worst you had worked on. I may well of broken it ๐Ÿ˜ณ
