  2. Hi there, My manta was registered in August 73 and I think it was built around feb 73, I was wondering when I tax it in April can I just show my log book and get free tax? Or do I have to get a letter to prove it too? Thanks, Ray

  4. Hi there, Just go for it, I did mine last year under a gazebo in my front garden and I used a cellulose paint kit that ibought off ebay for about £110 and a 25 L compressor, everybody comments on how good it looks and can't believe that I did it myself and it only cost about £200 for the whole set up. Good luck, Ray

  14. Hi there Vinca, I'm interested, I have a 1973 Manta sr in black can you give me some more info please. Also are you saying you can pay £100 a day or you can't pay £100 a day because it's a bit unclear what you mean? Thanks, Ray.
  15. Ok Ian, Let me know what you want to do? Thanks, Ray.
  16. Hi there, I have an A series Manta and was thinking about making some wheel arch liners for the front wheel arches and i was wondering if anybody on here has already done this and if so what did they use? How did they make and fit them? And do they have any pics that I could have a look at? Ray.
  17. Hi Ian, I have a 1.9 delco dizy that I removed from my A series to swap for a Bosch one that I converted to electronic ignition. I was going to keep it for a spare but if I could get the Bosch one of Andy I'd sell you the delco one for the same price Andy charges me. Or if you buy the Bosch off Andy I'll do you a straight swap if you wanted to. How does that grab you? Thanks Ray.
  18. I don't know how I missed this on eBay? But how much would you take for it without going through eBay. Thanks, Ray.
  19. Hey Shug I'm taxing mine tomorrow, it's the earliest you can do it without losing a month plus if you do it then it should be cheaper than doing it next week because it's going from the 1st of April . Well done with your MOT Ray
  20. Hi, That sounds great, how much do you want for it?
  21. Hi, Does anybody have a good standard 4 speed gear box for my 73 Manta Sr 1900 when I was driving it back from the MOT station I couldn't get 4th gear and then a bit further down the road it got stuck in 3rd gear and it took me about 30 minutes to get it back into neutral. It's the first real drive that I have done in it since I've had it but I did know that there was a noise coming from it but I thought it was just the clutch bearing. If nobody has one does anybody know how much it would cost to have it rebuilt? Thanks guys.
  22. Hi, I think that I might of sorted the washer pump now, I stripped it down cleaned and lubed it and now it see to be working fine now. Thanks for your replies. Ray
