Recommended Posts

Well after a very long time I have at last got some cash to finish the 400r . Took it out for a wash last weekend after it standing for 3 years .

new s/s/ exhaust , bonnet diamonds to fit and a quick paint work blow over , then off to be tuned and some fun to be had .

Thanks once again to all the club members for the advise ,parts and words of encouragement with this my first project .

Just put 400 on it. I reckon the R would spoil it. Paint looks deep on that one so it doesn't need stripes taking your attention away from that paint.

I have a 400 decal in Yellow 20" x 4" if that is any use to you (depending on your colour code). I was going to fit on mine but I have kept the decals red on my car. It might need a little TLC to straighten but very useable, it has been in my shed for some time.

If your interested PM me and I will send some photos, all it will cost is P&P as I was given it years back by another member

Thanks Rob for the offer I was thinking of silver decals for the 400 on the rear, and on the front wings down the doors. I will have to scroll the internet for some photos and ideas.

Black is difficult colour, it shows all the little imperfections, but i gather that your intensions for this Manta are not polishing and taking to shows, Your going to use it for blatting about, something i thoroughly approve of !

 I think it needs the Shell Oils graphics now........

It is most definitely not a show car . I will take it to some but only as a means of getting there.  This is /has been built to have fun and cure a teenage obsession.

 Started putting bits back on and 1st coat polish on some of the panels. Still can't make up my mind on silver or satin black mesh ?

Tricky one. Both look good however, I'd be tempted by the silver. It sort of depends whether you want subtle or a contrast.
