  1. If you have the original cracked and in pieces do the following. Put all pieces in order from one side using some kind of metal clips to hold them. Spray many layers of rubber undercoat(not with wax ) so to create a new skin for it. Spray both sides of the rubber. Many layers and let each layer to dry really well . In the end you will have a NEW reinforced sound deadening ...
  2. Just remember Earth straps are so important as power cables. What i do is with a sand paper remove all derbis, tighten the nut and with a battery pole spray seal the bolt.
  3. I had mine full of cracks and some where really bad. What i did ? I used a black underseal spray , the one we use to seal the underpart of the car and sprayed over these ! I did some 10 thin layers and now they are like new condition !
  4. My Manta is a 1986 one with H4 bulbs and Bosch Headlights . Both reflectors were gone. I found two NEW reflectors cheap cause there weren't for H4 bulbs I stripped everything apart and i removed the h4 bulb holder from my old reflectors and placed it to the new reflector. You need patience and precision its not an easy job. I also cleaned them and paint the front piece... Now the outcome is like New headlights with a sharp strait cut line when light hits the wall . Search the FB page i have uploaded many pictures from the process
  5. Is the one with part number : 6N1 819 021 ???
  6. I think that reflectors are not sided... When i fully reconditioned mine using new old stock reflectors had not this issue ! I have adjusted them and they are fine !
  7. No .. it has to do with the glass.
  8. I have come across others cheaper on ebay ! But i do not know if will fit the Recaro Opel style . Check these ebay codes : 332113090976 223061924749 Are these good for us ?

  16. Paul still waiting... Is there any tracking number ??? I paid for 3 calendars I have not only none but no answear to my questions....
  17. With a good engine (right compression right oil pressure etc) the first thing to check is the timing. You need a timing lamp. First you set by turning the diatributor the static timing . The second step it to verify the dynamic timing . From the carb there is a tube that sends variable vaccum to the distributor. A common fault is to have connected the other carb output that provides constant vaccum... Then you need a digital rpm meter and a exuast analyzer. Depends the carb you have you set the idle rpm ( manufacture value) and with the analyzer you set the mixure so you have a CO good value. Thats the correct procedure. If you have not reconditioned the carb better do it. I would buy a new weber replecement if you have a varajet II.
  18. You Must check and adjust the static advance with a special lamp.
  19. Nothing yet ! Please tell me news.I am waiting for many days ! Having paid for 3 + Postage to Greece , i hope that these Calendars are on their way. Any tracking number ???? PLEASE Its about a month waiting ...
  20. The easy project is the time delay.... the difficult one is the time delay with fade function...
