  1. Just needs a good polish
  2. Manta B Hatch project - Rear Valance needed

    Sorry looking without seeing if that makes any sense Cheers
  3. Manta B Hatch project - Rear Valance needed

    There is a hatch rear panel on EBay at the minute....or is it a Coupe you have?
  4. GTE arrived today and now to work!

    Shame you have to move it on, good project for someone who can either get the rails or is good at fabrication. There is a solid looking A on Ebay right now which I believe is owned by a well known member on here.
  5. Security

    My South African friend had suggested electrifying the door handles possibly illegal in the UK of course Visual deterrents such as the locks that cover the steering wheel deter most amateurs (although I once returned to my car running, door open and a brick on the seat where they had been belting the lock!) Like Snowy says the pro's will turn up with a flatbed making most things ineffective, all you can do is make life difficult and fit a wheel clamp & tracker and security mark every bit of glass etc.
  6. You would have thought there would be a picture of how bad the roof is.... 10k for something that might need a roofskin
  7. GTE Side Skirts reqd

    No problems it just kinda works as I need to go down to Slough fairly soon
  8. Eh... the link now leads to a different car
  9. GTE Side Skirts reqd

    Carl has got a set on Ebay.... I need to go up and pick a few bits up from him at some point this week hopefully. If you like I could collect them for you if you buy them from Carl? I need to meet a customer in Slough fairly soon so if you can wait a few weeks I'd happily run them down with me for you.
  10. It does indeed, reminds me of my old 76 SR but with added grunt, bet it's fun to drive
  11. Manta GTE (15 years on)

    Good effort in 6 hours! I have 2 weeks off soon so going to crack on with mine finally oh and take a trip to High Lane to drop a note through a certain door
  12. Black GTE Hatch

    Ahh yes, Woody back in April... £670 it went for on Ebay at the time. Looks like the person who bought it has realised it's too far gone and is trying to get some of their ££ back.

  14. Cassette rack

    I can still visualise pulling half reams of chewed tape from my Manta stereo back in the day, gutted it chewed my Stu Allan tape I'd bought outside Club Kinetic or maybe the car had better taste in music than I

    Boot Seals are on Ebay from Germany, not cheap of course though.... think they should fit ok. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vauxhall-Manta-A-1-2-S-OHV-Boot-Seal/262991063842?hash=item3d3b7d2b22%3Ag%3AKq0AAOSwLVZVtowM&_sacat=0&_nkw=manta+a+boot+seal&_from=R40&rt=nc&_trksid=m570.l1313 Also worth checking if East Kent Trim supplies have them, I know they do headliners and various A bits and bobs.
