Yes, complete with aircraft landing lights. :lmao:MantAscona said:I have a 1970 Kadett wagon. It's actually my wife's car. We love it and take it on family vacation every year. I think most of the wagons got used up as daily rides in the 70's due to their utilitarian nature. I don't think there are too many nice original ones left. I shipped mine in from California about five years ago. It's a very nice and solid original car.
Somehow I think that would compromise the originality of the car. :yup: My wifes wagon is the only one I have ever seen that still has the factory under dash finishing panel. Does anyone else have a Kadett with one?That car needs a turbo charged 2.5L Opel engine making about 500 HP.
My NOS chrome Bosch rally lights I bought a couple of years ago didn't come with covers either. Wouldn't be too tough to make a hammer-form and make some aluminum ones though. Carlisle 'how-to' seminar maybe?MantAscona said:I don't have any covers. I bought six of those lights brand new about 15 years ago when Bosch discontinued them, however, they didn't come with covers. I agree the covers would be nice though.
I'd be up for a cool seminar like that. I have seen black plastic covers to fit my lights but, they were on other cars, not for sale. I believe your chrome lamps have a different housing than mine.Wouldn't be too tough to make a hammer-form and make some aluminum ones though. Carlisle 'how-to' seminar maybe?
I agree Todd.I think a set of those would look better on a big-bumper Manta than the smaller rally fog lamps. Plenty of bumper meat to mount them with too..I've looked around for something similar but they're hard to find. I think they'd give the newer mantas more of a rally look, especially with the rally paint!
I think I would still prefer the look of the original fog lamps on the earlier thin bumper Mantas though.
I still have two sets of factory Opel vinyl driving light covers with the blitz on them. Problem with these is hitting the light switch accidentally with the covers in place results in an instant melt-down of the cover!opelnut10 said:How about a pair of yellow vinyl covers with a black Opel Blitz embrodryed in them. I think they would look sharp and a good upholstery shop could whip them up.
