Sold - Opel Manta A series Headlamp Surrounds - £15

Here are a couple of Opel Manta A series headlamp surrounds that a lot of people have been making enquiries about. The first of these is still in fair condition, the plastic body is free from cracks or other damage, it was quite dirty but responded well to gentle cleaning. It would seem that there are some areas of paint over-spray, nothing that an hour or so with T-Cut or similar abrasive polish wouldn't sort out though.

The brightwork looks fine at a distance, but close up inspection reveals some surface scratching; it looks like someone did some D.I.Y. bodywork on the adjacent front wing and inadvertently sanded over the bright-work with a low grade of paper.
Unfortunately I don't think that you can polish out the scratches with this style of brightwork, but please feel free to correct me if you know better.

Either way this headlamp surround would still make an excellent replacement part for an everyday classic or track day car. Plus there is also the option of repainting the trim in silk black, just like the Manta A GT/e, or alternatively in body colour for a custom finish.

The second of these Manta A headlamp surrounds is also in fair condition and the plastic body is free from cracks or other damage, a little more elbow grease with T-Cut or similar abrasive polish would no doubt yield a high gloss finish.

The brightwork would be quite good if it wasn't for six or so dents in the finish, it is possible that if removed and placed on a suitable surface, you might still be able to knock these imperfections out.

Either of the headlamp surrounds are priced at £15 each to clear, the price includes delivery within the UK. I can send to some European locations too, but please ask for a quote first as this could be quite a high sum.

Obsolete GM spares are not exactly plentiful in the UK, stocks are limited and I will not be replacing them, so don't hang about if this is what you need for your car.
