    Hi Mark and the others, all panels from the Dr-Manta shop you can also buy from me. The price is the same, by me is PayPal possible. This is an additional service to my chassis legs. The chassis legs at the Dr-Manta shop are my production. Regards Eckhard

BUT LET'S FACE IT PAUL DANIELS WOULD OF HAD HIS WORK CUT OUT TRYING TO REVIVE THIS ONE.... Maybe one day in the near future a manta enthusiast will end up with this car ,But it will be descised as a new fridge freezer or a washing machine 😂

    I am too busy otherwise I would of jumped at the chance. It needs a very good respray and welding but it wont be extensive. Its cheap at that price! When the exclusive coupe and gt/e hatch we are building are done I am having time off the restoring other cars, going to enjoy my new house and start to get mine stripped and start the work on it.

    The pictures should all be loaded across to the forum by now.. Stuart told me that as they are viewed, they will get copied across and that should probably have completed by now as the web crawlers should have done the hard work for us and viewed pretty much everything on the site. Happy days.

    short piston is due to long rod/stroke ratio so both correct. crazy CIH engines out there if you have the cash. best engine for regular use is 2.2 imho more torque and more friendly than 2.4 to recondition i have a PMC 2.2 engine and stage three head and cam going in my ascona a connected to a getrag 265 9 inch clutch with 6 bolt cover.

    I need to upgrade my membership to OMOC But from what I see from early pictures it looks really good, obviously needed some work but it's going smoothly from what I see. My friend from DSRLeasing shown me one Manta on gumtree that I may be interested in buying, it was gold as well
