    Retro power mention in this post about the mk4 Astra conversion using the Astra cable. Hope this helps, it's the same conversion I will be doing so if you can post some pictures when your done it would be much appreciated.

    Luckily it's parts I would like to have rather than actually need. I would love to re skin my roof to do away with the sunroof but not really necessary, and the 400 bonnet would save me a lot of work fitting diamonds and vents to the steel bonnet. But then I suppose there are advantages to the more solid steel bonnet. Plus other bits I'd like but can repair rather than replace. You are absolutely right about parts getting harder to find, and with the money and the space it would be great to have some spares just in case. But just have to hope that if and when any of us do need something there are people like you on the omoc that has collected and stored them for us. 👍 Sorry Andy for the post hijack, hope you get your seats sorted. Mick

    Your welcome. I was checking out the photos as you have bits I need. Just can't justify spending large amounts of money on a car that I haven't even started on yet.

    Looks like Danny and Carl may have a pair in their recent find if the condition is any good and they want to part with them.
  13. Old article from Car Mechanics Magazine from 1991 called Mega Manta. would be interesting to now if the cars still exist and if any of the owners are still members or manta owners <img Article courtesy of Car Mechanics Magazine Feb 1991
