  1. Looking to purchase the 2 rubber grommets that seal the ATE top up bottle to the ATE master cylinder on the Manta, my ones are weeping and will require replacement, if you can help that would be great or if you could give me details of where to purchase them new, thank you 👍
  2. I have just renewed my insurance cover for my Opel Manta GT/E from Adrian Flux, fully Comprehensive, public liability, £20,000 agreed valuation, me and my wife as drivers, talking with them on the phone this morning, great service, very helpful and £50 less than last year’s premium, 👍
  3. If they were manta rear quarters there would probably be a bidding war and still reach £1000 each 😃
  4. Original rear quarters are now costing an arm and a leg but then reproduction pattern parts are not being pressed because there is not enough demand, where does this leave us when we require panels to complete our projects? Definitely a rock and a hard place.
  5. Sorry for posting in the wrong section but I was under the impression that all members were to receive a years free membership in 2021 as per discussion at the last AGM. My membership expired today and I presumed I would automatically be given another year’s renewal, but that hasn’t happened? I have no problem or issues with paying for another year, but could some clarification be given on this subject, thank you 👍

    I put 12 months road tax on today and took the Manta out for a run, a beautiful sunny day for it, nice and dry roads, clocked up 200 miles. With the time changing last weekend it’s noticeably lighter for longer already in the evenings, these photos were taken roughly 8.45pm, this photo is right on the north east coast in Scotland in a small costal village called Pennan, where they did some filming for the movie Local Hero, although I haven’t seen it myself, but the scenery is beautiful,
  7. That’s a better picture now, I can clearly see where you are getting access from now........away to cancel my specsavers appointment 🤣
  8. Still can’t make it out............ I’m away to specsavers🤪

    The oils he says are specifically for Vauxhall’s, here’s the gearbox oil, don’t know what he put in for engine oil but I could always ask if you wanted,
  10. I might be missing something here but why are you in at the front of the camshaft? The oil level raiser is fitted to the back passenger side under the rocker cover, Opel put something that resembles a large split pin in and that’s what sometimes is missing and where the oil level raiser fits.

    Up to my local garage today for service, engine oil, oil filter, air filter and changed gearbox oil, then put a new MOT on it, sailed through as I expected, now ready for the nice spring days ahead 👍
  12. I would stick with the black on the bump strips just as Opel did, I actually like it but that’s just me, top work, looking good 👍
  13. Have you tried edelscmiede.com online, I’m sure they sell them.
  14. I bought this one from e bay, https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/150455907193
  15. here’s a link to e bay for a boss adapter, see if it’s any use and check fitment, it states Opel manta all models so splines and horn should be good, check the number of studs on the boss and wheel, hope this helps, https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/152710855165
