    What is the best way to remove all the old under body protection off the car as I have got a blaster coming after Xmas and he has said he needs it removed from the under side of the car? Also the outer sills I have dont have the front sections on them can you buy them or will I need to make them, thanks to everyone who has been giving me advise and guidnce so far 🖒😁

    After a very long time finally life has allowed me to get some work done on the old girl managed to replace the drivers front floor and get the jacking point and outer chassis legs on, chuffed now I back on with the resto Still loads to do though lol
  5. Manta Resto

    Got some work done on the manta the last couple of weeks, removed my chassis legs and made new internals, I have made some changes as I thought it might be stronger to go the full length with them, I have used 3mm box section and modified it into shape, the box section is slotted into the front by 2 inch and it runs the full length to the cross sections, my outer cover plates fit very well over the to too, here's some pics lads hope you like what I did.

    I was going to get the inner legs done first then blast the car, would I be better to stop were I am and blast it first? Also should I remove the outer sills be for its blasted?

    Been back in the lock up tonight decided to remove the drivers chassis leg, both outer and inner rotted through, I was thinking of getting some 3mm box section to use as the inner leg? I have the outer cover panels, I thought it would be best to use the original floor pans as a level for the new legs, ordered new floor panels due next month, my new outer sills arrived last week so hope to get loads done over the next few months, some pics of the poor rotted and poor repaired floor.

    Hi all had a play with the manta tonight, I have ordered some panels and waiting for them to come, so I have converted the manta to power steering, modified it my own way after looking at all the other ways to do it, I have came up with this, plenty of clearance and support, I'm really happy with it. Some more pics
