Found a set of black Manta GTE Exclusive alloys for the Kadett on an expired listing on ebay - managed to buy them off the seller in York and got them uplifted by the dude who brought the car up for me... wheels are in perfect nick and were a bargain! Well chuffed!!!

We've decided that this is the planned colour for the Kadett...
Now i've got the car it does look great in white but the dream is Brilliant Ochre Opel Yellow...
This pic isn't my old car but looks the spit of it except I had black wheels.

Both doors are bubbling along the bottom on the inside. No signs on the outside yet of any trouble

PostPosted: Fri Sep 23, 2011 8:52 pm    Post subject: Doing well gathering bits Reply with quote

I've done pretty well gathering together the bits I need - I've now got:

-a 1.3 engine, manifold, gearbox and struts all from the one great guy who's maybe swapping me a spolier for a better steering wheel as well
-two front wings and front panel and maybe a tailgate from another good guy
-an irmscher spoiler for the back

So this weekend is the start of the strip down. If anyone has good advice on this then please feel free to PM me thanks!

I've had mixed advice on whether to blast the shell, or not, so I'm still undecided on that.

Looking forward to gettin my hands dirty though!!
