  1. Trim under headlights

    Hi I am still looking for a black trim too if there's one spare. Thanks
  2. Trim under headlights

    Hi Mantaray, How much would you like for it? Do you think it will make it via mail without damage? Regards Mark
  3. Trim under headlights

    Never been to Rhyl but if there's a lesser spotted piece of trim I may be tempted.

    Hi Mantaray, is it the chrome or black? Ideally I would like black. Thanks Mark

  7. South East Pub Meet 28Th June

    Dave, might not make it as am already at a bbq and am cooking! On the plus side, got my calipers back from Bigg Red and they look great so just need to get them fitted and get her MOT'd.
  8. Membership renewed. Just got to get the brakes sorted!

  9. Hi To All

    Hi Clive, welcome to the club. You'll find a lot of help getting what you need. One thing, the late b series did actually have plastic bumpers not chrome. My 1982 Berlinetta had black plastic bumpers and a body moulding along the swage line. Dave Smith has a 1982 Coupe so take a look at his car it's standard and immaculate. Hope this helps. Mark
  10. S/east Area Meet - 25Th May From 6Pm!

    Nice to meet you all and thanks Paul for the starter motor. Took the Manta for a spin yesterday but brakes are still binding on so will look at bringing forward the refurbishment. Mark
  11. Hi Dave I have sent you a text with my details. Mark
  12. Sounds good to me. I'll try and bring along my father, he's itching to drive to GTE again.
  13. Hi, Dad is fine now but had some health issues a couple of years ago. Pioneer speakers in the Manta were great. It was my second and probably favoirite car in Sapphire Blue. You have good memory, we kept that Rekord for years and I even drove it when I passed my test. You may remember Dads silver Manta he had before the Rekord which is where I probably got a taste for them and I remember Mick from the service team working on it and changing the carb set up. There seems to be quite a few Manta's out this way now so we will have to arrange a meet some time. I am Colchester way these days but still frequent Chelmsford.
  14. Hi Dave, My father is Alan and Graham Wills worked for him for a while. I actually bought my first Manta off of Graham and then spent a small fortune on a respray, recon engine etc. I have actually got all the bits to convert my coupe to manual just need to get the time to do it.
  15. Hi Dave, Nice Manta, my father used to valet cars at Jones of Chelmsford and DW Jones on Baddow Road so I spent many a happy day there cleaning cars with him. Probably one of the reasons I like my Opel's too. Now have a 85 GTE Coupe myself although I am still toying with the idea of converting it to manual.
