  1. not the cheapest but worth bookmarking https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Opel-GT-Kadett-B-C-Manta-A-B-Alloy-Wheel-Aluminium-Rim-6x13-ATS-Classic-ET30-6036-/133608843171?_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49292
  2. I continue to be really impressed with the quality & speed of restoration at the Abbot Manta factory. Not only that but the willingness to keep up with the pics & info which is invaluable for the forum. 👍
  3. If your oil pressure seems to be erratic this thread is worth a read.
  4. Worth a phone call https://gm6spares.com
  5. I’m pretty sure it was Biffy on here that had RS turbo recaros trimmed with leather bolsters & Daytona centres which looked pretty smart.
  6. These guys have the Daytona main part so maybe worth a call? https://www.classiccarservices.co.uk/shop/oem-materials?start=36

    If Herman can confirm the length these guys are pretty helpful https://www.namrick.co.uk
  8. I can’t say much, my manta is black but should be white. Ah well 😊
  9. This might be the case for newer nearly-classics but the GTE LE jetronic control module doesn’t have software as such. It’s an analogue unit. Sadly Bosch didn’t leave identifiable numbers on the main integrated circuit on a couple I’ve had in bits or I’d have tried swapping out the silicone to see. As far as the unit as a whole goes, we don’t have the info suitably presented to make it easy to systematically prove or disprove the elements. I’ve gathered a number of articles but haven’t tried to summarise into a manta-esque flowchart. There are still enough “ecu’s” around that nobody is stuck yet. I do wonder whether folks would rather look at a diy thing based on something like a raspberry pie or update to a modern aftermarket system with accurate timing & sensors. I guess time will tell. Another member was talking about alternative systems earlier this year but seems to be busy with more pressing mods to his cars.
  10. It’s been depressingly bland for a lot more than 5 years. You prompted me to have a quick search
