  1. Another one that needs work https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F273760953605
  2. A little more expensive https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F254002785644
  3. https://manuals.co/workshop/opel/manta/opel-manta-1975-1988-workshop-manual/5530647/275 I find it easier to look through manual, but you can copy and print the relevant pages from here. Which may come in useful.
  4. Doesn't look promising with this translation. Especially this part (Questions regarding this are deleted without comment) Please read everything. Sell a trunk tub for Manta Ascona B part number 1722178 They were molded from the original and made by deep-drawing so that it corresponds to 100% of the original. The upper edge is provided with a piping, and at the front of the yellow OPEL sticker is attached. The part comes to the right side in the trunk. No holes need to be drilled for this. New Part Original No. 17 22 178 As long as the ad is online, the offer is still part to buy. Questions regarding this are deleted without comment. Calls and mails are not answered on Sundays and public holidays. The price of 70 € is incl. Shipping in D. No Paypal Maybe a bulk order from the club could be a better option, if there was enough interest.
  5. I had messaged him today and asked for any more info or photo's which may have spurred him on to posting the pictures. That's not a lot of metal for £356, nothing that a decent fabricator couldn't make up with a little time and effort. Appears to be more about repositioning front shock mount than about added strength.
  6. Be careful trying another coat before the first is properly dry as the thinners soak through and you’ll get a nice crinkled textured finish. Either paint when tacky or let it dry off completely . Also time consuming but I’m with Mike if you can flat between coats you’ll get a much better finish. Good luck
  7. Any one know anything about this ? Will be interesting to see photos and what strengthening plates are needed and where. maybe something that could be posted in the Manta Modifications section. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F183699280296
  8. How about a 1978 1600GL in need of a loving home. Sorry just re read your wanted ad so a 4 door saloons not what your after. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F254123906223
  9. Description changed from earlier then as it definitely said coupe. Still could be a reasonably cheep way into manta ownership for someone.
  10. Hi Not sure if this is any help but this company will make fittings too match your requirements. May have to order too many so maybe not practical but you never know. http://colombofasteners.net/about-2/
  11. A lesson in how Not to advertise a car for sale. 1983 silver coupe. could be a bargain for someone or Not !!! https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F273701406877
  12. Spotted your car on twitter today looking great 👍
  13. Your welcome. Hope you get it sorted, he is accepting offers so like you say if they are in good enough condition it's worth travelling. Plus you get an off side wing to help cover the cost.
  14. Hi couple of wings available on shpock. Unfortunately collection only, in Rotherham if any use to you. £60 the pair https://en.shpock.com/i/XF15pvEunwA0Whef/?lft=
