Hi to all. Can anyone help me ,i have a firenza which i'm restoring to a 70s replica vauxhall team rally car. But i am finding it hard to find pics and information on the layout of the dash board and interior or what the rally car has had done to it. Did thay have fire extinguishers? did they have external emergency kill switches for the ignition for the fire extinguishers? did thay have navigator footrest ? what strenghtening was done to the chassis?and can you still buy the parts to stiffen/strengthen the chassis?. Did thay have perspex windows. any pic and information will be a great help. Any competition parts for sale will be very helpful. is there a lsd(limited slip diff) what i can use out of another car that fits in the 2.3 axel[eg] ford/volvo/vauxhall. pictures can tell alot about a car so any pictures would be great.many thanks mike

my email is sarah.mike@talk21.com

Apparently a Manta axle will fit and they were available with an lsd. Better check with someone else though
