  1. Ahhh that would also explain the 1.9e engine they’ve listed too
  2. Browsing eBay & saw this, thought it may be of interest. Looks like they have some other stuff too https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F273859472122 It seems if you put this in eBay there's other stuff of interest seller:carpartsmountain opel
  3. That’s interesting to hear, I think mine actually needs to be stripped back to the original paint & redone. It’s a testament to the guy who sprayed it a decade ago that it’s stood up reasonably for the length of time it has but I’m probably just putting off the inevitable now.
  4. Wayne now you’re nearly done & have conquered reacting paint, can I send you mine? 😜
  5. Hi Paul, there are several very knowledgable guys on here; there's quite a bit more info if you join the club too. Will you be doing most of the work yourself?
  6. Pictures aren't great but still https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Classic-car-ford/333269977299?hash=item4d987048d3:g:SWoAAOSwPlhdL3dQ
  7. Looks cool with the kit, I found another thread on the build both prior & post the above

    Mike's Manta.

    First glance at the upper pic of your front end & I thought you'd fitted some really snazzy deep set crystal-ball looking lights reflecting the sky when its actually so clean & clear behind there.
  9. Yes it’s a black handle with chrome looking edges, thanks for the heads up Danny, that has saved considerable time & grief!
  10. Thanks bud but I’ve just had an offer of a couple which is just as well as my passengers one looked different & probably from an older car.
  11. Anyone have a grey window winder available?
  12. 2.0 CIH LE Jetronic I don't normally hammer a cold engine but she'll rev fine until she's at normal temp and then its a bit like a rev limiter around 3000. It seems to be electrical as I can stop for 5 mins then she'll go to 6000. I've previously changed the coil, ECU and metering head, tonight I finally had a chance to change the occasionally noisy fuel-pump as it really feels like a lack of fuel but despite the change she's still the same. Starts instantly from cold, idles at around 8/900 rpm which is low but fine. When warm needs the throttle about 1/3 way down to start quickly or she needs a bit more of a grind. Also when warm the idle is apt to be nearer 1200 rpm but a blip of the throttle will bring it down but that may be a red herring... Anyone else had this?
