Let the polishing bengin.😂😂😂put up aphoto now of the sides of the car so I can see the difference in a week or 2 once it's polished up.waste paper bin used again on pic 5 for the mesh for a quid per bin and I used 2 bins for the bonnet and bit under the windscreen pmsl.

  6. Sunroof manta b

    I can't believe I am asking this but . I have had a new seal for my sunroof the factory fitted type that slides back on the Gte exclusive . I took the roof out stripped it to paint and can't remember how the hell to put the new seal back 😂😂😂😂does the new seal only go from one side at the back around the front and back to the other side in a sort of UK shape. ie missing out the rear of the sun roof . Any one have a pick to show me please. A full 400r rebuild and I am stumped on something so simple. .....😂😂😂and cue the abuse from Mr Abbott.

  13. Hallo I am new

    Welcome to the club
  14. E177 tkd long shot but while sorting out old paper work came from when I bought my manta 12 years ago from Opel fruit on our site. He was from Nottingham and sold it to me for..... £250 . I would like for him to see the car now so if anyone in the club can remember a member called opel fruit ( kev). Please show him the page with my car on it or if you have an e mail Facebook ect I could send him some photos. ☺attached is some of the paper work I printed of in 2006 about the car (sorry if I the wrong section but I wanted non membersto see it too just in case)

    New plug cover arrived along with the rocker cover breather modification. Big thanks to Paul lovely fiberglass work again.😊😊 I will have to get all the covers off now prepared and sent off for carbon fibre dipping. Have any of you used any company's that do carbon fibre dipping that you would recommend. I have found one in Birmingham there work on the net looks good and at £75 for all the engine covers not a bad price .
