  1. There has been a surge of interest in the Commodore Bs again. Beaut cars. My Dad had a coupe when I was in my early teens, and always wanted to get one of my own ...... so I did ;-) Was it you looking for a replacement speedo for your Commodore a while back?
  2. Yes, already been watching this, but would prefer with an Opel badge ;-)
  3. At least a new bonnet, and offside sill but there will be more! Doesn't show under bonnet, and probably a rusty mess underside, but worth a look if someone lives nearby?
  4. I do mean twin slot of course
  5. Definitely a better finish than the Manta DIY jobbie! Did Crayford ever do any conversions on Mantas, or only Cavalier Mk1? I know it would be easy to change the nose to a single slot, but would still be registered as a Cavalier.
  6. Comparing the two, the Centaur's roof at least looks like it has been tailored to the car, around the smaller rear side windows, while the Manta's roof looks like a caravan awning draped over top, and the rear window just happens to be in roughly the right place......
  7. Looks quite nice with the roof down and targa top, but ugly as, with roof up.
  8. I nearly bought this last year, but backed out at last minute as had a bad feeling about it. The floor pans and wiring all looked very amateurish, and he hasn't been able to sell it since - presume the same seller.
  9. I'm sure these are greatly sought after, but maybe someone has a spare set they would be prepared to sell me? Can give a UK address to send them to, so no hassle with overseas packaging/documentation Thanks
  10. How's it going with your Manta? Just seen you say you had one of these at 17? Wish I was so lucky - could only stretch to a 1974 Vauxhall Viva 2 door in a lovely shade of brown Still, I've got one of my own now Just need to arrange the shipping .......
  11. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Opel-Manta-B-Sunroof-Seal-NEW-PRODUCT-/222447560154?hash=item33cae865da:g:2f4AAOSwaB5XmMHj Hi, has anyone used the sunroof felt seals sold by East Kent Trim Supplies, as it seems to be advertised for Manta B sunroof. I'm presuming the sliding sunroof on my Ascona B would use the same trim around the edge, as it needs replacing. Otherwise can anyone recommend another source? Thanks Neville
  12. Incredible! Maybe a mate pushing the price up, and then won by a timewaster? That'd be poetic justice
