  1. Bit of an odd query this... I'm fitting a very tight fitting rollcage and wanted to check that in the event I may not have be able to quite get the rope method to work all the way round, has anyone fitted a manta B coupe screen from the outside using a plastic trim tool or or similar to flip the lip over the screen? I'd do a test but currently don't have a windscreen as the car was bought as bare shell and I'm intending on fitting a heated one when I get that far. Thanks for your thoughts, Jason
  2. ill have the poly bushes and intresated in the  brackets for the 4ha axle what calipers are they for cheers graham

  3. Fingers (very) crossed I've managed to snag this one, subject to viewing it. - I've been on the lookout for a good manta shell for a while!
  4. Great project! Out of interest, if you had cut the bulkhead away and moved the engine further back do you think you would have been able to avoid lowering the steering rack? (obviously this would probably create other issues with the brakes and exhaust manifolds)
  5. Evening all, I'm having a bit of a change of mind as to the future use of my project. I'm now thinking I may want a cage which I can remove/refit in the future. Ideally I'm after the proper safety devices cage with rear harness bar (not a dash dodger one or one with a double bend in the front legs though...) - I'd be looking to swap it for my brand new T45 custom cages weld-in kit (like this but with proper X door bars: http://www.customcages.co.uk/Rollcage/LoadRollCage.castle?manufacturer=Opel&model=Ascona&type=Historic ) Any offers? Cheers, Jason
  6. Probably best to know what you're after from the car, is it power and handling, or purely noise? I only say this because it's easier and cheaper to drop in a Saab turbo engine and have up to 300bhp than to fit the straight 6.
  7. Does anyone know what SCR and boost pressure the courtenay conversions were running?
