  1. Nice looking car and a great advert, only bits missing is picture of the n/s, boot area and engine bay. 12 months mot and no advisories. Nice colour and charcoal interior, whats not to like!

  7. Mike's Manta.

    Mike, how much did they charge for the refurb? I bought a new one (master cylinder) from Germany and to hand i think it cost £120 delivered. Would be good to know for next time if your guys are much cheaper as you had both done.

    I'll be popping down on Saturday, will be good to see you guys on the OMOC stand, my red GTE will be out in the car park. First outing!
  9. 400r insurance

    Flux should of given you a full list of what pictures they need. Just requested agreed valuation on mine (waiting to hear back) They want pic's of both sides front and back, engine bay, interior and dash showing the mileage. Not sure on club valuation though
  10. Full Restoration D91 MOP

    I have been meaning to start this thread sometime ago but never got around to it. So here goe's! Bought the car in March this year from one of the guys on here. I didn't see it before purchase but was given a good description so i took a chance. Pretty much as expected apart from a few (as always) sections that hide away under carpets and behind wings etc. Its a 1986 GTE, 3 owners from new, 98k genuine miles. I managed to track down the 2nd owner who had the car from 1988 until earlier this year when it first changed hands. He had it on his drive way since its last MOT in 2005, nice chap and luckily had all MOT's from 1989 until 2005 and believe it all not they were all done at the same garage D&R Services, Arley. I was really after a coupe to convert to a 400r but when this one turned up it was so original i couldn't do it so i am restoring to original. Even the spare wheel was still new and unused! Every clip was in place etc etc. First job was to completely strip the car and put it on a spit You know when the chasis is shot when you jack up the car and the jack goes up but the car doesn't move! I can go on showing lots of pic's of rust but i guess we've all seen rust although maybe not as bad as this one? So first job was to replace both chassis legs, making sure the car was secure and supported. I won't explain the process of welding up the the legs as there are a couple of links on the forum to show this. I got them from Eckhard in Germany, quality is second to none and highly recommend his Chassis legs. More to follow as seem to of run out of space?

  13. Full Restoration D91 MOP

    Quick pic of the wheels after i'd painted them Painted them inside and out. Car is now finished and today drove it on the road to the MOT station, drove really well with no issues While the car was on the ramp other mechanics kept walking over to it and the tester kept pointing at things, made me a bit nervous what he was pointing at, seemed like ages and he came back into reception to see me with a smile on his face and said!!!!!!!! i've had to fail it as it hasn't got the original radio, i then explained it was at home and will be kept with car, had a bit of banter and he handed me my new MOT well happy. Boss came out and asked what it was worth and loads of questions, before he asked i mentioned it wasn't for sale, the garage used to sell them back in the day and he remembered them and always fancied one. I will be valeting the car over the next few days before i post up the finished Pic's
  14. Hi newbie here

    Welcome along, did you buy the red GTE?
  15. Full Restoration D91 MOP

    Thanks for the comments again guys! I have started to fit up the interior now, on the rear shelf are the original box speakers. I want to keep the original look but have speakers that i can hear so i went about searching for a modern 3 way speaker that i could make fit in the boxes. I found these speakers, Pioneer TS-A4633i 6" x 4" 3-Way. I had to cut the front of the box to make these fit and also the back a bit for the cables Then just drop the speaker in You can see how much larger it is than the original. Next i reinstalled the rear shelf and fitted the boxes, i think it looks a treat! I have fitted the stereo in and they sound pretty good so well happy with them. After getting the nuts for the front section of the rear arch trim, i could fit the rear quarter inner trims and rear seat, i have also chosen to fit 3 point rear static belts
  16. Mike's Manta.

    Great job to join the doors like that, do you know if they had a lot of distortion from the heat (welding wise)?
  17. LIGHT AT THE END LOL

    Great looking Manta , just looks so right in black!
  18. 1986 Manta Coupe Restomod

    I 'm guessing by looking at the pictures it has been started by someone else? You can buy front swan neck sections of the chassis or are you planning on making your own, i'll look forward to see what you have up yoursleeves for the suspension, steering set up etc. Keep the pictures coming!

  20. Self Threading Nuts

    Ok thanks for looking anyway
  21. Self Threading Nuts

    Guys before i order some that i think are right on Ebay, does anyone have the 4x nuts that hold on the arch section of the cill/arch spoiler trim on a GTE(2x each side), they are self threading nuts that take a 8 or 10 mm socket, can't remember which. I have mine but after going through my garage and boxes 10 times i can't find them, i need asap please!
  22. Self Threading Nuts

    Ok thanks, i'll hold on ordering until later.
  23. Best to start small but as always once you start cutting it always get bigger! I would remove your screen now as you have rust that needs sorting under it as well, also will stop you damaging it with sparks as mentioned before. The metal behind where your new plate will be looks a bit rusty, if you can't get to it to cut it out (better if you can) make sure you soak it in Hydrate 80 or something similar, last thing you want is your new plate rusting from the inside out in a couple of years!
  24. Brake calliper refurb

    Look good, i had mine electro plated by them as well and the service was spot on.
