  14. fantastic thanks. im having a little problem with the temp creeping up when im giving it more revs this may come in handy

  15. hey when you put the car together did you wire in a blank panel with a little green led on the dash? or is that standard, i cant work out what it is

  16. wow thanks paul i apretiate all that. i have done a little work on the car myself and noticed wile dooing so that it was in very good shape, from the little i have driven it i can also say that it is still solid and alot of fun. i bought it for the same reason you built it i think, i wanted a reliable reasonably standard looking car that i could tinker with myself and hopefully use as a day to day and it fulfils that perfectly. the paint job is very disapointing im saving funds for a respray i am thinking it may go black though. as you said the headlights are not the the twins but i am curently looking for a good set to fit, other than that i dont think it is much different than you described. yes i did pay 900 but as i said im well happy with that because in my opinion she has far more character, i may be getting all wierd but it feels like a car that has been well looked after and loved it is clean and tidy and i love that you named her betsy, unfortunatly that name has not stayed as i now call her mani ( its debatable wether its a mans name or not but hey) it is my first year in the omoc and i am intending to come to billing aslong as i can get time for it and i would love to show you the car and hopefully what i have added to her i will keep you updated with anything major that i am dooing to the car thanks ben
  17. ahh ok so the exclusive stickers may have come from the origional 1.8 hatch gt exclusive and a 2.0 gt/e exclusive injected engine was transfered into it at a later date. (does this engine have a name? like the later redtop did) the car was registerd in 1987 if that makes any difference thanks ben
  18. hey guys i bought my red manta gt/e reg D687 PWJ in summer last year from ebay, it is a 2.0 gt/e and has an exclusive sticker on the back however it is a hatchback, this made me wonder what else the car had done to it on lookin through the history it shows that at some point, and i cant pinpoint where, it changed from a 1.8 to a 2.0 sugesting an engine change. I WANT TO KNOW MORE! so, as the car had a omoc sticker on it and there is a sheet with some old tax disks on it with the omoc logo on, it must have been a previous member. someone has to know something. wen i bought the car it was advatised as formaly a GT but converted to a GT/E however i dident even realse there was a manta GT?? this jut adds to the confusion i realise that all this devalues the car but i dont care i feel it adds character, it only cost just over £900 and it runns sweet. i just want to know the cars history thanks Ben
  19. ok guys thanks alot for all the help im begining to get hang of the forum i think. how do i post picks of the car up ?
