  1. I believe Classic Oils should be able to help with the correct oil for all your bits and bobs.
  2. That’s a gorgeous looking car and welcome.
  3. Never mind the A series - where’s the engine in the white 400 ! Gutted I can’t make it, never seen a 400 in the flesh. Not to mention the pork pies there !!
  4. Great work guys and good on you for saving another
  5. Very close. Very close but not quite!!! M+S equivalent - salted caramel, as a starter.
  6. I’ll give you 10/10 for originality - 😂😂😂
  7. Here’s wishing you all a very happy Christmas psCan you guess what I’m drinking (to start with )
  8. Do you have a link for those LEDs. Got some on mine and they’re a lot dimmer.
  9. Blimey 4 batteries in stock in your garage. You know you can’t claim the local Halfords as your garage??
  10. Clive Armstrong made the stainless steel bits for the Mantas. Decent quality as well. Not sure if he’s on here but he is (was) on the face book page. Last I heard he’d sold his Manta He supplied with all brackets but I chose to fit mine with silicone as I wasn’t keen on drilling holes. Club had some trays on the stand at the NEC which seemed decent enough
  11. Found this on the web. Might be an easier solution for all. It’s worth remembering that E10 is not the only option. E5 is likely to remain on UK forecourts for another five years, but even better for owners of historic cars could be investigating ethanol-free fuels. At the time of writing, there is no requirement for ethanol to be included in super unleaded (97/99) grade petrol, so if you’re driving a cherished older vehicle (or putting one into long term car storage), consider a switch to the UK’s only ethanol-free fuels, Esso Synergy Supreme+ Unleaded 97 and Synergy Supreme+ 99. Taking a long-term view, we’d advise that any car with fuel held in the tank for over three years should be drained and replaced with ethanol-free petrol. What’s in our Synergy Supreme+99 premium petrol Our Synergy Supreme+ 99 petrol has more cleaning power than our regular petrol – and includes molecules whose job it is to reduce the friction in your engine helping the moving parts work more efficiently.* Although our pumps have E5 labels on them, our Synergy Supreme+ 99 is actually ethanol free (except, due to technical supply reasons, in Devon, Cornwall, North Wales, North England and Scotland). Legislation requires us to place these E5 labels on pumps that dispense unleaded petrol with ‘up to 5% ethanol’, including those that contain no ethanol, which is why we display them on our Synergy Supreme+ 99 pumps. There’s currently no requirement for renewable fuel, like ethanol, to be present in super unleaded petrol although this could change in the future, in which case we would comply with any new legislation.

  12. I actually remember that advert !!! She’s got the standard Exclusive spec, as I don’t think there were many options around at that time, as GM were phasing them out and it was a case of what they could get. Luckily I had a friendly dealer, who knew my dad for years who knew what I wanted and gave me the heads up that he was getting a red coupe 2.0 GTE Exclusive(The Money Pit) and a Monaco blue 1.8 hatch exclusive and I had first refusal on either. He even kept hold of her so I could get the F plate. Owned her from new. Recently had the underside refurbished, along with the suspension and brakes recently at the Car SOS Workshop.
  13. Thanks Paul. She’s emptied my wallet there a few times !! Got them a few extra viewers as well I imagine .
  14. Bp ultimate user here !!! I believe all the super unleaded fuels are staying at E5
  15. After many years of Manta ownership-since 1987 to be exact I’ve finally got round to joining the club!!!! I’m sure I’ll have spoken to a few on the Facebook page so hello again. Hopefully you’ll recognise The Money Pit !!!!
  16. Hi Niall. 
    Was just looking at your post re headlight adjusters. 
    Are you still looking for these as there was a guy who managed to get some 3D printed in plastic and was selling off if you’re still interested. 

    Couldn't reply directly on the thread

  17. Got a 075 fitted to my GTE. Fits fine but as mentioned has higher cca
  18. Had that done to mine Also had some twat try to nick it - slight paint damage on the rear three quarter surrounds like a screw driver was used in an attempt to force the glass.
