  1. 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 👍
  2. Hi guys, been doing a bit during lock down. Can you still buy the rubber seals for around the head lights?
  3. I agree, I found on a track car when mine was mobile you couldn’t really lower the back without it feeling very nervous on the limit. I think for handling standard gte is as low as you can go. 👍
  4. Yep I know r380 is right and down, I can select reverse manually with out remote connected. Il take another look tonight, I can get 5th and reverse would obviously be behind it 🤷🏼‍♂️
  5. Hi guys, I know it’s not a manta but you guys are cleverer than me 😂 any one had experience with putting the LT77 remote on the r380 box. According to forums it’s a strait swap however no matter how I adjust it I can’t get reverse? There doesn’t seam to be enough angle on the the stick? If no suggestions it will be get the gas out and bend it so will reach 🤦‍♂️
  6. Mainly track car however will be road legal... but definitely not a daily 👍
  7. Sprayed harness bar, also gave the rest of cage a really wet coat to make shiney😂 not sure what to do in the back, front will have carpet, what do you guys think, stripped out or carpet in the back?
  8. Getting stuck in again. I was hoping to get finished by last summer but didn’t quite happen. It was mainly paint prep to do and it’s not ideal in the cold and damp. Anyway, rebuilt su’s and harnes bar sorted. Few odds and sods like brake pipes etc then wait for warm weather to spray 👍
  9. Yes definitely get some richer needles, it will run way to weak on standard ones at the top end. Also run more advance , by memory for track use I was at 36 degrees advance at 3500rpm. That’s a lot more than standard Range Rover that it’s probably out of. Was no pinking at that. I’m getting stuck in with mine again now, will have to meet up on track, would be good with 2 v8 Manta’s 👍
  10. I agree re interior, I had a ‘78 Berlinetta briefly followed by ‘84, b2 car felt cheap by comparison 👍
  11. Hi Ian, iv not been on for a while and only just seen your sad news. I hope your son continues to improve. All the best, Jamie
  12. I don’t want to offend and it obviously cost a lot to build but 10k for a rolling shell that had no takers when it actually had engine and box????? id say a little optimistic
  13. Hi guys , as title, what’s the best primer to use for hatch rear spoiler? I’m spraying with2 pack, I also have some barcoat if that’s of any use 👍
  14. Must be getting close, iv got some primer on! Been quite a while prepping, it’s had a few blow overs before so tuck a while. Unfortunately I ran out of primer, I used more than expected a while ago on the cage... good news is arches and roof look pretty well, more primer next week and il be nearly there 👍
  15. No posts but have been busy. After swapping one door it didn’t really shut, other door sagged so much it needed to be lifted to shut so cut top hing , prised it up from inside and rewelded, surprisingly they both open and shut perfectly. Last couple of nights prepping front air dam and primed. Now arches and roof sorted it’s been flying along really well. Hoping to get skirts and back bumper prepped tomorrow.
  16. So getting more weight to back seams more important than between axles , thanks 👍
  17. Hi guys, iv not posted on build thread for a while but I’m getting close to completion. Where do you guys put the battery? Two options.... to the left of spare wheel well (hatch) pro’s .... weight distribution and most of weight removed is from the rear...cons... weight is behind back axle. option 2.... behind drivers seat (no room behind passenger seat as iv located it as far back as possible for weight distribution) pro’s... between axle and low down... cons ... not massively helping weight distribution. I’m aware of safety etc regarding leaking battery’s etc. Whats your views guys?
  18. Price not bad imo. It’s a coupe... they make loads when mot’d and loads and loads restored! Well done 👍
  19. I think the barn may of had a leaking roof....
  20. Great work, with out wishing to offend when I first saw this project when you started I had doubts if it would get finished, great commitment, apart from the endless prep on the body I think I’d be right in saying you’ve enjoyed 99.9% of it! Well done doesn’t quite come close but the best I can come up with 👍👍
  21. Not sure but I know hatch roofs don’t make half what coups do so maybe not the same. Having said that if it’s just the sun roof area it’s a possibility. I’m sure guys on here will know 👍
