Always liked a silver GT/E. How many Manta's do you have hidden away in there!! :) ....about 4 by my reckoning.

That's a right little Aladdin's cave isn't it? - plenty of treasure hidden away in there.

Also agree that Silver always suited the Coupe body shape.

I always use a rubber mallet to gently tap the rubbers down as I go and into the corners that should help 🙂 Car looks great 🙂

Just 3 he says! :) Silver was popular enough up until around 85/86 when additional metallic colours were introduced. I think silver itself was dropped for the 87MY cars.

Silver was dropped when the Exclusives were available as Astro Silver wasn't an exclusive color.
