  2. 4 door ascona on Facebook recently, Depends on your definition of nice though, quite a lot of work needed.

  5. A little help from Google translate.... Hi, I start my theme for my Opel Manta project. I begin to disassemble the car and the new engine to restore it. I bought Martin's body kit (it will arrive on Friday). The project is slow because I don't have time to do it, but I will report the progress. The car is in good condition, I only find a little corrosion inside the car (driver's side, I upload a photo) but it is not important. I want to put fire screws (5x120), I read a lot of information and I have clear the update for the front wheels with the TJM hub kit, but for the rear axle I am a little confused, I read about the 4HA rear axle, the Volvo axle .. I don't know, maybe someone with more experience in that can help you understand the best way to do it. To be continue...
  6. Lovely looking manta at the show anyone taking responsability.
  7. Thanks herman, there's always those elusive parts that simply vanish in the workshop too, that seem to take an age to find again 😂 Does anyone know the colour code to the exclusive wheels ? Is it just anthracite ? Thought it was 81L but when you search for that it comes up as a black metallic or anthracite.
  8. Looks like the pressures off with the material.

  10. Made it as classified of the week. With a nice write up. Which has got to be good for the sale. https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/magazine/1985-opel-manta-classified-of-the-week/
  11. I use abrasive discs in a angle grinder for removing paint. A bit messy but removes the paint easily enough without damaging the metal too much. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F133065330796
  12. I'm not in any rush other than you mentioned he's running low and you want another 10 metres so probably sooner rather than later.
  13. The eBay material looks different from his original post and from your earlier picture the extra material between the pattern would be useful.
  14. Here's an earlier post mentions 4 pieces at 1.40m each Would you be interested in doing a group buy Jess ? Only asking as you have already dealt with him, plus if would reduce the postage cost. I don't do Facebook so have been a bit wary about contacting him, Would be a few interested parties. cheers mick
  15. There has been an engine with loom and a gearbox listed a couple of times on eBay recently. Unfortunately sold or not listed at the moment. i did come across this though. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F184020122504 Maybe not what your looking for but will definitely be of interest to someone. I did come across a couple of 1.9 cih's in Bristol though, https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F283476875487 https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F283476873314 same dealer
