    Door Support

    I got tired of replacing the gas struts on my Black Mirage and finally hit upon a very simple method of holding the upper doors in a raised position. These are coil springs intended for marine...

    Mirage steering effort

    Dave,

    The steering effort depends on how fast you're going, among other things. MANTA 2 had BFG T/A 245 tires on the front and its steering felt "normal" at highway speeds but much heavier when it...

    Dave, I made my black Mirage doors into gull-wings so my larches are not exactly the same but you might get some ideas from these pictures. I installed an inside door handle from Southco.

    Those were the original fiberglass seat shells with vinyl upholstery supplied by Manta Cars, Dave.

    My YouTube video about restoring Manta 2 might be helpful, too.

    Sticky: Production Numbers
