  2. It’s about time I did a build thread building this car to use in road rally stage events with the help of my father who is a 30 year manta nut who’s turned me from fwd Astra gtes novas in to opel rwd machines 🙂 i already have a mk1 cav saloon running national hot rod spec xe and another spare saloon and another spare coupe 🙂 i have made a good start pics to follow etc I got most of the kit fitting before I had the shell blasted the car had been painted and looked straight As a die I could not believe how much filler was in the rear quarters for no reason at all filler straight over the top of the old paint etc but the paint job was very good I think they did it to have a pin straight car which it was but I hate filler so it has all been bare metalled

  6. I have one will check if complete tomorrow
  7. Yes that’s what I thought so screen still wanted cheers Carlos
  8. Am sure the cav saloons and Ascona screens are different to manta cav hatch and coupe ones I could be wrong
  9. Hi after a windscreen for my mk1 cavalier saloon I believe Ascona one is the same not fussed on tint etc as it going in a road rally car . Will travel cash waiting Ps I will do swap for coupe screen if wanted I have many coupe /hatch ones
  10. Ps I will cover the removal of the tubes but you have to machine out the plugs welds to remove them I will do this on the mill at work in the future and document it it’s ideal as you can play around with axle length but custom length half shafts would be needed
  11. Hi that it a Opel rekord d pigs head (centre section ) I brought from Danny sohns in neatherlands for the 3.89 cwp the rekord cwp can be used with very small modification the the splined barrel the torque tube contacts to which I will cover in detail very soon I believe Danny sohns chopped the tubes as they use brackets etc to build a proper 400 spec axle (4linked straight prop no torque tube etc ) But the theory has crossed my mind to reuse the pigs head and 5 link and use the rekord drive so I can get rid of the torque tube (a project to come I think) . John
  12. Measured 3.44 and 3.89 last night but forgot to take my best verniers I am going to remeasure with precision depth gauge later and also do I 3.67. But the measurement I have done have been very very nearly the same and it has gave me the same center line all but a couple hundredths of a millimetre so I may I have crack will be back with some better pics !
  13. Herman maybe you could ask Danny for the dimensions I have emailed his shop but had no reply let him no I am willing to pay handsomely for them 🙂 ps I am nearly there measurement to follow but the proper tools would be better
