  1. My god - it is only in Nuneaton (about 20 miles away) and I have ALWAYS wanted a White GT/E hatch....... Looks like a fantastic non sunroof project. That could be a minter in no time.
  2. Looks like a good project car for someone. That could be on the road after not a lot of work. Getting lots of bids already.
  3. I think it was PaulManta down in Cornwall that put these kits together. It was 4 years ago though so I doubt whether he has any available any more. It might be worth getting in touch with him though, he may still have the diagrams perhaps?? i found the original thread. They do look pretty darn good though eh!
  4. Looks solid enough. Wonder what its like underneath.
  5. Welcome Lee and I hope you enjoy your time on the forum. Keep your eyes peeled as there have been great cars bought and sold in the last few months.
  6. My Pleasure Glad that it helped out I must admit, I'm quite tempted to get one for mine as they do look better than the other "bolt on" type, (which is basically the same lens in a square box).
  7. I was told once that a MK2 Fiesta XR2 rear fog lamp was a better fit than the original. Not sure as I never tried it but there is one on eBay at the moment and I can see that it looks as though it would probably work. Depends whether you would call that desecration or not - although it is probably manufactured by Hella or some such company anyway. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/like/152423503382
  8. Wouldn't say no......I'll just check down the back of the sofa.....
  9. I saw this earlier on today and thought that it was a bit special - certainly one of the nicest Cavs I've seen on fleabay for a while. It is quite local to me, so if you want me to pop round and have a look, give me then nod. Probably best to ring - home phone number is in the magazine. I recognised where he took the pictures of the car as I used exactly the same spot when I sold our Frontera many years ago!
  10. Ouch - thats going to take a lot of cash to restore. Shame, it looks like it was a nice one before the tin worm got to work.
  11. He certainly wants all the money for them. Last ones I saw went for less than half that (although to be fair, they were used), As far as I recall, Irmscher made these for the Kadett D rather than for the Manta, so the length of them is not the full length of the Manta wing top. I think the Irmscher ones are 97cm. At the same time as Irmscher was making them, Zender did these too, and they were quite popular in Europe for a while - I think these were available in several different lengths and thicknesses to suit various cars. You are probably more likely to see Zender ones for sale than Irmscher ones, so I guess these are probably quite rare now.
