  1. I am a web member and learned a lot of those great projects that I find on this forum, worth the money!
  2. The Manta-400 was available with factory-sunroof, 100% sure there I know some owners. Not sure the Ascona-400 was available with it, saw also the pic I posted but never noticed it... Think it will have not the same influence there we don't drive them daily and store them in a dry garage. I have a electronical air-dryer with a humidity sensor to keep the car dry, even naked steel can't rust where the car is stored.
  3. Some pics from the smartphone: We had a great time, nice weather and I think a lot of "facebook-fans" cause we saw a lot of thumbs going up...
  4. We had a great weekend, some pics: The Missus made some pics with the handy, got to upload them... Herman
  5. That car looks great!
  6. Manta GT/E (Exclusive spec)

    This can't be possible!! I am convinced with your craftsman skills you will get the car back on the road. About the drivers side wing: could it be possible that it is bended cause the bonnet moved aside against it? I wish you all the luck with the repairs, grts, Herman
  7. Manta Coupe resto no.2

    That car looks great, nice colour and the red logo's go perfect with it. A pair of painted Engelmann's would also look nice... Gonna show these pics to the missus, she wants to visit GB again after our trip to Castle Combe last year.
  8. 22 of April we had a nice tour with a lot of old Opel's: The link to facebook: http://www.facebook.com/OldiesOnTour
  9. Hello Ian, good luck with the welding etc... I did this a few weeks back, together with my son: not that difficult and gives you a lot of space to work! Succes!
  10. Checked the parts catalog: it is a Bosch
  11. Manta GT/E (Exclusive spec)

    This should be copied to use at school! Clear, and documented with great pics! My 17 year old son is studying car-mecanical at school. His teachers don't know I am professionel a car/truck mecanical cause I don't want he will have bad infleuences cause his old man is... Sometimes I look over his shoulder and as a dad I help him with some homework. You don't want to know what stuff they teach our kids at school! @The General: the trick with the shrinking tube is nice, never thougt on that! Happy I could help you, grts
  12. 2.0 gte air box

    @Evo: I'm going to connect the tube into the frontspoiler, but want to test it with a exhaust tester while I'm driving cause don't want to take the risk that my mixture is to lean. Think there will be a lot more air supply when the air is forced into the filter cause of the speed.
  13. GT/E Ignition timing

    The different quality of feul and different compression of engines forces us to set the ignition unique on every engine. By the way: on a CIH 20E the crank pully mark is 10°, a good starting point. And I use also the highest octane feul. I turn the dizzy bit by bit to more advance on a testdrive with low rounds and high gear to wait until the engine pings, than I turn it something like 2° later. But be carefull: pinging (detonation) kills an engine. Last year I visited England with my "400" and needed feul. I asked the bollywood guy behind the counter what octane his feul had. He shook his head and didn't know. I filled the car with the best feul and 500 yards further I disconnected the vacuum-tube from the dizzy cause the engine was pinging like hell. Later at Castle-Combe they tolled me I filled it with 97octane, only a bit lesser than in Belgium... The idle (20E) is 800rpm and as Chris wrote advance almost 30°. Personally I like to set the idle a bit higher, 850-900rpm. Grts, Herman
  14. 2.0 gte air box

    This is the airbox with plastic tubes as they go into the hole next to the radiator. I folded the hole with a pair of plyers (see pic posted in october above) so the tube fits. Still got to finish te air-intake in the front of the bumper. Grts Herman
  15. 2.0 gte air box

    Thought I had some more pics, will take some other pics to answer your question. Inside & outside. Grts, Herman
