Kapitan (3/8)



  1. i was very close to buying that car myself from James. i viewed the car and thought it was great. but the timming was wrong. also i was paying around £1000 for it so you have got a real bargain . great you are keeping it mostly orginal. as its one cool manta . the colour also i think is great. would love to see a fresh painted panel. im sure it would look great. in the original colour cant wait to see more photos as the resto takes shape. best of luck any help i can give will do. also james is the wizz on the manta so any help or advice from james is top
  2. hi i have a good auto box and torq conv for your manta. i bought it for mine as i thought my box was no good. but it was somthing simple. but i got it as a bavk up. its a good box bought it from paul barret. if you want them you can have them for free
  3. last bit of paintwork done.i will leave it a week then give it a polish. also got to paint under the bonnet just got to get ready for mot.. go through the brakes new handbrake cable pads gaitors. fitted new tyres.. got the lights all working fixed heater fan.
  4. when you have flated the runs out. if you take to much paint of you could probabley just repaint that patch. let it dry. then wet and dry over the new and old paint with 1200 grit. then polish up. it works well with 2k but do not no much about your paint. but it should work
  5. a friend of mine has a body shop. and a few years back i watched him remove runs with a tiny round barrel shaped block he used a simple tiny thimble shaped tool with a flat bottom in his finger tips . it was the diamiter of about an aa battery maybe a bit larger. and about an inch long so he could use it in his finger tips. he atached a small roud ,piece of wet and dry to the end then just sanded that small area. i will go and see him see if i can get a photo. it was perfect for getting rid of runs. i would not worry to much about runs even my mate who has owned his own body shop all his life still gets them. its the little tricks to remove them thats key
  6. hi i used my back plates and adjusters. here is the ebay add. he may sell adjusters
  7. the bonnet i had a drip of the gun. and i did not get enough gold paint on i used a high powerd lamp to look close at the coverage of gold before i top coated. but when you stand back the primer is still showing through. i can repaint just that section but im going to wait for it to dry good first. also got a few marks here and there. but the body work on the front was really rough so i can not be to upset.. i have now sold my car so the manta is now going to be my everyday car. so really trying to get it on the road asap. so i do not have to keep using my wifes car
  8. front end done there is a few mistskes on the bonnet thst i have got to go over again. the nose cone came out great happy with that.. theres a few other bits i have got to tidy up. got new head light set from ebay £40 with dome glass not quite as domed as my originals but still ok.
  9. wonder if the flexis could be expanding when you apply the foot brake
  10. hi i have got a complete 2.0 s engine perfect. low mile engine. bought it because i thought my engine was no good. but turns out it was me leaving bolts loose on inlet.. you can have it for £150 . the engine is in telford shropshire
