Wouldn't you be better off with some 1.99 Chinese leds? OK I understand the keep it original thoughts but I would suspect the back lights off a 2002 are ££s.


What's the retail on one of those plumbed in fire extinguisher systems?

Deffo 2002 rear lights, I'd recognise those units anywhere!

 

Good luck with the resto on this one, the Mantaray is one of the better looking of the buggies.

It's been hard to find time to work on this thing but today I finished work early, went and bought some fuel hose, 20 litres of petrol and spent an hour tinkering.

 

The existing fuel pipe around the engine looked ancient and had gone hard so I set about replacing it. The main fuel feed from the tank passes up the "spine" of the chassis and looks in good shape so has stayed for the time being.

 

With fuel added to the tank and drawn through by the frantically ticking fuel pump I tried to fire it up. it burped and popped but wouldn't run. I popped the top off the carb and cleaned crudded up jet and tried again. This time it fired up and settled down to a nice smooth idle. I still can't figure out the autochoke or how it works, and without a throttle cable connected I had to operate the throttle lever by hand. 

 

I fancied a quick spin so propped the throttle open a little with a screwdriver and went for a jaunt up and down our shared drive. What a hoot! All gears seem to work OK and the brakes work well enough to lock the front wheels in reverse. 

 

As the exhaust is still knackered this thing is very VERY loud and rapidly attracts a crowd. I can't wait to try it out on the road!
