  2. Top work, if you are ever at a loose end you can come and fit my rear quarter panels for me as I'm still too chicken to start on them. Although I'm moving again in early January and it's a proper double width garage so I won't have the excuse of not enough room to work in anymore

    Ebay: 73L Manta A 1.9SR for sale

    I'm not normally a big fan of yellow but that looks really nice.
  4. I have seen this in the flesh before it was fully finished, it is a nice hatch and someone will be very happy with it. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Opel-Manta-1-8s-Berlinetta-great-car-with-full-MOT/202484145452?hash=item2f24fedd2c:g:fT0AAOSw~2hb1ewb:rk:4:pf:0
  5. Can't make out from the pictures if they have fixed the rust and there is no mention in the description, it still looks great though!

    How much could my car be worth.

    Soon, before you sell! I need my lad to see how a car can end up if you put the graft in

    I can only echo what Chris has said, beautiful and reminds me of my sadly departed SR and how I wanted mine to look, if I had the cash I'd not have even posted the pictures If you do part I hope you find the right person who will look after her.

  10. Blue cars for me, I have a long sorry tale which most of is in Ian's thread about unlucky car colours but brief lowlights below! Blue Manta SR rammed by 'joy' riders in a stolen MG Maestro turbo, I almost got out of the way but they still managed to damage the door and rear quarter, Bought my Mum a Triumph T2000 of all things in that pale blue colour that was about in the 70's had it 2 weeks and my mate had borrowed it and broke down outside his Mum's house, went to collect it and it was gone! 2 blokes turned up with a flatbed claiming I'd done a deal with them for it and She gave them the keys Company A5 was hit by an unmanned Clio rolling down the hill in Marple Bridge! A hand me down company car Landrover Discovery from one of the 'big' bosses, was well chuffed with it til the oil light come on and the engine started making worrying sounds, called out the AA told the bloke not to turn it over and could he please instead just take it to the garage, he insisted he knew better and turned it over, seized it Trouble is I'll never learn as blue is my favourite colour
  11. And in a decent colour too, hides the rust
