  1. Lock Surround needed ASAP

    sorry to jump in on your post Danny, Terry if you decide you have to many of these in Grey, I would happily buy a couple of you (nudge, nudge, wink, wink)
  2. Manta 400 R

  3. Hello everyone

    Hi and Welcome to the forum, do you have any pictures/info on your car? what items are you trying to source and on what type of budget? (just asking), as this is a very good place for sourcing spares and pointing people in the right direction for genuine Manta owners.
  4. Bush availability

    I got my Super Pro Poly Bush kit from RetroPower, which was complete front and rear set up. Not 100% sure on the make up of the bush in question (Metal/Sleeve or not) as I fitted them 6 years ago, but when I did drive it, the car was solid. I will be replacing the bolts in the front axle trailing arms soon so it might jog my memory, as I have noticed I have fitted 8.8 grade bolts instead of the 10.9 Grade that should be fitted.
  5. Rear discs

    Have a look on https://brakeparts.co.uk/ I am unsure on Mk's of Astra after E (Opel), 2 (Vauxhall) Mine has Frod Serria calipers on the back with XR3 discs, it is what came with the axle.
  6. Crossmember brace bush

    Is this the lower wishbone attachment bush? I had a pig with some of these bushes as I fitted Super Pro poly bushes all around. I know on one of them I chamfered the lead edge to get it started and used a hydraulic press. I haven't posted on here for a while as I haven't been near my car properly for years due to ill health. I have taken the cover off the car this year and also managed to boil the battery earlier in the year while charging it (Doh ). I will be posting up some spares for sale soon as I need to declutter my collection of parts. My car head is slowly returning so I hope to be out and about in the distant future. Defo a Farcebook killing the forum zone. Everyone wants the answer yesterday and nobody wants to pay for anything they can get free. I have a Farcebook account but hardly use it as I find the drivel on there just repeating over and over again. Those FB lawyers, politicians and activists need culling from time to time (lol) I read it on the bog to pass time away so mostly toilet humour to me.
  7. anyone in Crewe or nearby Cheshire?

    Just read your original reply correctly...doh
  8. anyone in Crewe or nearby Cheshire?

    I work in Crewe just of Wistaston Road nr Stubbs and Jewson's if that is near you? I don't live in the area so depending on times I might be able to assist. I work Mon - Fri usually 0700 -1500. I think it's Pat that lives near Leighton Hospital. I keep getting told that there is another Manta owner who works for my employer DB Cargo, but I have never seen the car/owner yet.
  9. B Coupe, boot spring hinge L/H

    Cheers Malcom I have just been informed by Derek that he has already got the R/H Spring Hinge, and it was a miscommunication on my behalf, so I do apologise on that. Regards Rob.
  10. I have been asked by a member, who doesn't have access to the internet (at the moment) to ask if any one has the item 16 (picture below) available for sale They help to keep the boot open (not so good with exclusive spoiler though). Item 16 Cat No 1 76 297, Pt No. 09289105 Spring (Tie bar) Hinge left The member lives in the NW of England nr Southport and I can pass on any details if and when required Many Regards Rob
  11. Poly bushes

    Super Pro Poly Bushes make bushes (or use to) for complete sets for Manta etc. Retropower was a stockist for them, might be worth contacting them.
  12. Panhard rod

    I might have one, but it will have been weathered (being outside). If your interested I will post up some pictures.
  13. Renewed for another year

    Good call, mine is due renewal in the next few weeks
