  1. Its a shame more are not out and about, when the sun's out, there's nothing better than taking her for a blast, the looks you get are priceless, I was stopped by the police last year just so they could have a look.
  2. Ours was out on Tuesday, Drove down the A55 for a quick blast, but only seen a silver manta on the A55 some time "12/18 months ago".
  3. Hi, Sorry if this has come up before, and it might sound daft, our manta is kept garaged over winter and is back in service this summer after being SORN for 2 years, I carried out a full service after it was rebuilt and put on the road 4 1/2 years ago, however it has only done approximately 1800 miles in that time to date. Would it be appropriate necessary to change oil filters plugs dizzy and rotor? The car is started roughly every 3 to 6 months and up to normal operating temperature during storage. Oil used is Mobil 1. Secondly I am having some difficulty in sourcing the appropriate service items that are either genuine or OE, any thoughts or advice where they could be obtained from would be much appreciated. Thirdly is it worth replacing the coil on these??? Your advise and comments will be much appreciated. Regards Disco
  4. Hi Stu, Yep I ordered this, not from ebay but direct along with a few other bits and Bobs, will do wheels as well now too many thanks. Disco
  5. Not a bad paint job, for a DIYer and in a home made spray booth, all waxed and sealed now looks great, now to enjoy the Sun
  6. Hi, might put ours in too, hope the weather stays good. Cheers Disco
  7. Hi Stuart, One I had not heard of, old fashioned company too, might just give this one a try, I recently painted ours in RED, so would like to keep that way Spent a lot of time getting it right, don't want to waste it, many thanks. Disco Wet flat, machined, Ta Da.
  8. Hi, I was just wondering if any of you, have used these types of sealants, protectors. Have searched and come up with various products Have just clay blocked, machined polished and waxed the Manta, but wish to put some form of long lasting sealant on? Any info thoughts much appreciated. Disco
