  1. yes i got mine from Lenk tuning nice guys to deal with. spoiler comes in two parts and the fit is pretty good. Need to do a bit of manipulating to get it spot on and a little bit of extra glass when joining them together stiffens it up. I put it on with small countersunk screws on a butyl type sealant and then tapered the edges and filled and faired to make it blend in. Theres pictures in my wee a series rebuild in the project section
  2. Ok so it's been a while I've just finished rebuilding the mazda so at least I don't have to drive a 1.4 astra anymore as every time I did a little bit of my soul died Been bashing away at the manta the last couple of days it really is amazing what you can do with a jack, a big hammer and lot of aggression. it's back in the ball park now still a long long way to go but at least now I think I'll get there Thanks again shug for the wing! Will get pics up as soon as I remember how

  4. Thats brilliant shug definatley want them. Where abouts are you? Think the settlement is nearly sorted now so be able to start pulling it apart soon. Although the end of the chassis leg is bent down has got me a little worried Ive bought myself a generic silver astral mk 4 1.4as a cheap runaround going to put some Opel badges on it to make me feel better Thanks again shug

  7. Ok that is a bestselling tragedy story you have there. Fair play to you! Must say I am coming to terms with it now and I'll get on the hunt for parts biggest problem I have is no time!!
  8. Thanks shug that has perked me up a bit. Having had a good look at it now I think I'm going to need a wing full front nose and maybe inner wing although could maybe sort this out with some new metal. Would be really interested in those parts. That was what I was most worried about was getting the parts. You just talked me off the cliff. Cheers
