  1. Welcome back to Manta ownership Bruce, as Dave mentioned above a few of us are local to you so hopefully meet up one day soon. Are you fitting the bonnet scoop to the silver one?๐Ÿ˜
  2. fingers crossed but so far looking ok, best get a view more wire brushes though๐Ÿ˜‚
  3. Glad you had a great day, i loved my manta V8 track car. Hopefully the oil pressure will be a straight forward fix, as mentioned try the pressure relief valve, also check the pump gears are ok not to worn, also the bottom of the dissy that pics up the pump gear isn't split, this happened on mine after i sold it, luckily cheap easy fix by the current owner, although i hadn't heard of this happening before.
  4. Yep lovely car, sold mine this year as just didn't use it enough.
  5. That is a nice example, just noticed the buyers fee is 5%+Vat and a minimum of ยฃ600, very high and could put buyers off!
  6. Will be interesting to see what these cars make, after the couple that sold last year for strong money, this will let us know where the market is currently at.
  7. Very useful those vents Paul, Retropower just fitted same to a Chevette rally car their building.
  8. Coming on well, always nice to look back on how bad it was to start with and how good you make it look now.๐Ÿ‘
  9. Makes you think, i have mine agreed value at 15k. Will be asking for 20k this year, this one selling for that gives us evidence to show the insurance valuers and of course not for getting the one that sold last year!
  10. Does look good, paint looks nice as well. Back in the day the finish always had orange peel so i wouldn't go to mad flat and polishing. When i restored my GTE coupe i left the paint with orange peel (Not to heavy mind), ended up winning best paint in show at the 2019 Bristol classic car show. Nice detail on the inlet manifold, always looks clean with new bolts/nuts etc๐Ÿ‘
  11. Not a bad kit there, it will as mentioned also fit under 13" alloy rims with a little trimming.
  12. Great story, good luck with the restoration. Keep the pictures coming!
  13. Showing item out of stock so must of sold, that didn't hang around!
  14. Looking good, i always get my bolts etc plated, gives the job that quality look.๐Ÿ‘
  15. Lots of fabrication work there, coming on well though๐Ÿ‘ I have one of those radiators with fan attached in my C20let Manta, 500 miles of running the engine in and all good, they do look nice although only complaint i had was it wasn't very well polished up, whats yours like?
  16. Could always try Tim at TJM Motorsport, they supply various panels etc
  17. Have one in mine, quality and fit are very good. Haven't tried the heated element yet as not misted the screen.
  18. Looking good, good to see a different colour choice definantely will stand out! I use raptor on the underside of all my recent builds, great stuff.
  19. Nice fabrication work there!๐Ÿ‘
  20. Nice bit of fabrication work there๐Ÿ‘
  21. I was tempted when i first seen it for sale, don't see many of these come up for sale in any condition, good luck with the build.
  22. Sure was the one i sold, really gutted for Kurtis and trying to help where i can. Had the car for years, did track days and drove it to many meets. Never nice when you sell something and this sort of thing happens, really hope he gets it sorted as wouldn't want to see it sold for spares.
  23. Thanks for the kind words! Yes i did sell the V8, been in contact with the guy who bought it, he's been on a few track days but unfortunately he blew the engine yesterday, hopefully he'll get it sorted soon.
