  4. 86 gte coupe

    Not suprised it was snapped up so quick looks great with those wheels. Not an easy car to fit a strut brace too and as mentioned probably not necessary. Don’t think I’ve seen one fitted to the manta before.
  5. nice looking project at a reasonable price lots of bits already done https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F263744896305 haven't seen a strut brace like that before Sorry should have been in EBay adds if someone could move 🙄
  6. Hi lain I think you've found out that the engine has to breath so you can't just block off the breather pipe as the air will build up and find another escape route ie the leaky rocker cover gasket. Before this was fed back into the induction system it used to vent to atmosphere, so all you need is a filter connected to let the air out and keep the oil in. Search crankshaft breather on eBay You could go the catch tank route which is a lot more involved and used more on performance engines.

  11. 2.0 gte air box

    Had a bit of time in the garage this evening and spotted an old air box on the shelf. Thinking about Hermans modified example so I decided to have a look, I have a few bits of drainpipe hanging about so I dug these out. Looking at the air box and deciding where to start cutting and how to fit the bits together looked like it could take a while.Instead I thought about heating the drainpipe with a plumbers torch and making it fit. It heats quite quick and becomes soft enough to manipulate, so a bit of heating and sliding onto the air box inlet cutting heating etc I ended up with this.

  14. Exclusive register

    Sorry excuse my ignorance, but what is the exclusive register ? I'm assuming its in the name, but what does this entail ? Is there a current list of the registered cars and how up to date is it ? Mick
