  1. Pressure wash and in my tiny garage for a week and then take back to my brothers , gonna take a break before taking a look at brakes, also after my little drive realised there’s still few little jobs, you don’t always realise till you’ve been for a drive. But.. for now..I’m all Manta’d out 😂 ps, she does own a set of black rims but thought I’d leave the 195’s on for some donuts befor putting the 888’s on 😂
  2. Ups and downs.... su’s were rebuilt with help from my bro a few months ago... alls well and v8 running well... then carb leaking out of over flow.... checked float level... all as should be, inspect for blockage all clean and float seams to work as should... put back on and no leak... hum... I didn’t actually do anything. Anyhow, moved of ramp etc few days later.... same carb leaking.... remove inspect.... small amount of sediment in bottom.... clean... back on all good. Few days later, back on ramp for odds and sods....other carb leaking.... getting bored now however I’m getting super quick at taking carbs off. The fiddly not on each side is on and of in seconds. 🤦‍♂️Anyway, it’s the same fuel pump an I’d ran for years befor taking of the road 7 years ago but did a bit of a google and got a fuel regulator as su’s don’t like to much pressure.... the result? The fuel pisses out slower.... I’m getting a bit stumped now....Iv had su’s on viva’s and Chevets back in the day and never had this problem. So.. set the float level lower than it should.... and .... so far ok...(even though in the past iv set it to recommendations? oh, forgot to mention, new fuel filter added too.... iv actually lost count how many times iv had the carbs of...ok good need and bad news.... manta back home after 7 years at my brothers shed/garden, unfortunately it’s got muddy as he’s out in the sticks with a muddy farm drive... bad news... was booked in for mot tomorrow... but... brake peddle went to the floor on a quick pre mot shake down drive for half mile tonight. Had new callipers, lines and rear slave cylinder and all been well so either my dodgy plumbing or master cylinder. Either way going to have to cancel tomorrow’s mot.... but hey, was great driving it home for first time!
  3. Thanks for help, I thought with so many lights out it might be one problem, hence why I asked... turns out it was, er.... everything, fuses needed cleaning, bad earths and paint in some of the connectors ..... I’m getting through it.... thanks everyone👍
  4. Thanks for advice guys, will take another look, the last part of the build is a killer, you really do realise why there are so many 90% finished projects for sale I bailed on it tonight and played with the harnesses and roll cage padding instead (I did actually do some useful stuff to) 😂
  5. Hi guys, as title suggests, only a few lights are working. Iv nearly finished putting back together. I have... wipers work, fuel gage, drivers light, passenger side light work.. no main beam, no passenger head light, no back lights, no indicators either end. Power getting to fuses. What’s your thoughts? Sorry I’m quite stupid....
  6. Rear windows, black trim, skirts, front lights and bumper on in last few evenings, been fun..... you spend weeks sorting arches etc and can’t really tell were you’ve been yet a couple of evenings putting trim on and it looks like you’ve rebuilt the car.... 😂
  7. Thanks Ian, most of spray prep was done last year but iv been busy working but finally got it done..... hopefully just putting all back together and I’m done.... for now , you know better than any one what it’s like....:)
  8. No post for a while, been doing boring stuff, brake lines, wheel bearings, longer heavy duty wheel studs (the original ones quite liked there home and didn’t want evicting, big hammer needed) but finally.... a slightly more interesting pic.....
  9. Sorry that should of read Audi vented discs but I think you guessed that 👍
  10. Hi guys, as you’d expect after a while of the road I’m coming up against lots of snagging boring jobs... Volvo 240 callipers are seized, lots of pri bar, bleed nipples undone etc but no joy, there’s some refurb Bosch on eBay for £130 ish each, there’s a couple of different part numbers though, anyone any thoughts? thanks
  11. Mine came out really easy, but like the guys said, I’d been wd every time I walked past it for a couple of weeks 👍
  12. Hi guys, been doing a bit during lock down. Can you still buy the rubber seals for around the head lights?
