  1. Be £500 if a rubber seal wasn't missing......
  2. Get it swapped for the upgrade polo version.
  3. Have we tried the obvious Voltage regulator, my heater gauge used to go into the red after a few minutes & that's all it was.
  4. You can't beat this lot when you need help that's for sure. Gotta be worth £25.00.
  5. Best I can do for you is 4 of the bumper trim bolts, drop me your adrress & I will fire them over to you.
  6. Hi Julian, pretty sure my sportshatch had the pipework before I binned it for a Weber conversion.
  7. It's all the chrome trim on the Cavs & earlier Bs that make them different & to my taste better looking than the later trend for block colours & no trim. Good job you're doing, just so glad I bought new trim before it disappeared.
  8. Cheers, we have been together for quite a while now... I wonder if it will outlive that Merc.
  9. Not quite, the 1st pic is where I grew up in Blackburn, there is an ASDA, Halfords etc there now, the 2nd pic is in Ramsbottom which refuses to move out of the 1800s.
  10. Just found this pic from Feb 1985, with polished (filthy at the time) Wolfrace slots & B F Goodrich Radial TA tyres. And currently:
  11. Forget trying to source the same seat material, I worked for Wardle Storey in the mid 90s, we supplied the auto industry with plastics, Vauxhall being one of our customers. Using contacts at Vauxhall trim dept, they tried in vain to get details of the cloth & original suppliers, I eventually gave up & had a pair of Recaros trimmed in leather with rusty red colour hide chosen to match as nicely as I thought. I do still have my old front seats in storage in the attic somewhere, they were in much better nick than yours, I stress they were when I put them away. Don't know what time will have done for them.
  12. Just need to look at the assortment of geneal crap they trade, do you really want to send money to them for Manta parts? If anyone has done, please share...
