  1. Manta A series rebuild

    What a weekend! the A series won 3 awards from the OMOC members and a special personal award from Rab , So overwhelmed with the feedback and appreciation. Makes it all worthwhile. Thanks to chris Collier and Ian Hollis for all their hard work in pushing the build forward. A great weekend with great Opel friends.

    It’s been a close shave but got the A ready for its first show, a busy day doing all the little bits, not got all I wanted to get done but will have a few days before MH vboa to tart a bit more. now just the challenge tomorrow of the long drive down. Hope it makes it smoothly!

    Neat idea thank you. I will steal that as I’m not running a fan or heater but still have the housing in place.

  11. Manta A series rebuild

    It’s back in the body shop,last minute for sorting some of my mishaps hopefully will come out ok. had a real balance with brakes. Had a leaky cylinder on the front brakes, was an ass to change out. Then I really struggled t9 get all the air out the system. Got there eventually. been it for a longer run in it. All seems ok. Forgot how annoying the carbs are after a while and when it gets hot they don’t run too great, could with some bonnet venting but I don’t want to ruin the look. The c20let is definitely going in over the winter for a quieter life and it is sat there.
