    Just read through that topic and will be a massive help thanks herman

    I thought it might keep the car more stable if it was 4 linked? I was doing some more searching on Google and found these pics, I know they are 400 rear ends but the top link arms are off set on a angle and are also quite short, I could try and make some new mounting brackets on the chassis around those areas, or would it not work?

    After talking to retropower I have now decided to use a 56 inch 4ha rear axle, But I would really like to keep the back seats standard, could I put the top link roads on a angle and attach them to the chassis legs as I have marked out in this picture? any ideas welcome lads as I'm still in the long task of rust repairs P.s that's not my underside in the pic but wish it was

    Thought it would need a lot of work, looks fantastic though

    Very nice

    Hi all been on with the mental work and cleaning the under side of the manta and was thinking about the rear axle, as I'm making a 400r I must have a 5x120 rear axle so it looks correct, I was looking to convert a 4ha Salisbury axle to the correct stud pattern as they come with a lad also any ideas lads

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 🖒😁

    Thanks for the info on that i didnt even think to check, I might be better getting another jack or call the RAC like everyone else lol 😂

    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

    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.
