Re: Full Capri 2.8 Recaro interior (Shark Grey)

If anyone is interested i'd like get this interior out of here. I'd rather sell stuff together so its not handing around and would do the Seats & Door cards for £400 (£50 off) because of that.

Door Cards - £150
Door handles - £50 (drivers is not mint)
Carpet - £100
Front & Back Seats -£300

Re: 1979 Capri 2.0 "Ghia"

I replaced it over the summer but as the dash is out I’ll be checking it. Water seems to be dripping from the centre of the tunnel and running down either side ... it sits outside and we’ve had a ton of rain too so hard to decide

Re: Dixie Horn queries

Hi Owen, I think you need the relay as Andrew says as they draw a bit of power. I've had Dixie Horns for years on my Escort mk3 and they have a relay and switch on the dash. The cheap ones i have you have to hold down the button for the whole cycle.. not sure if more expensive ones will complete the...

Re: 1979 Capri 2.0 "Ghia"

So the wire to the taco goes round to the coil. This car has what i think is a sierra electronic ignition so i always thought that was to do with a 12v feed for it, as i guess it would have been points before this. IMG_5602.jpg Not really sure what to do with that... i guess i just re attach it? it ...

Re: 1979 Capri 2.0 "Ghia"

Got the dash out / dials to try and figure out why i'm getting no illuminations. I guessed it could have been the bulbs are so dark or gone they cant be seen. Turns out it does light up testing it with a 9v battery. I've replaced most of the bulbs with LEDs now so will plug it in tomorrow to test it...

Re: 1979 Capri 2.0 "Ghia"

Thanks! It did come out of a gold 3.0 Ghia from a chap on this forum. It’s really nice with only a couple little rips and scuffs .
Number 6 was just a pool ball I found in a charity shop for £1 years ago and always wanted to make it into a gear stick. Think the white car and green go well though

Re: Spraying interior plastics "Ghia Brown"

My Blue 81 Ghia has the brown plastics. I got a new parcel shelf from CCI & I'm pretty sure it was the vinyl dye I used. When I get home tonight, I'll check as I'm sure I have a tin of it left, £10 a can but it did work well. IIRC I put 3 thin coats on & it covered very well. When we did the resto ...

Hi Sleepy 172

How old are the single leaf springs? I was hoping to get some for my Capri project that’s been lowered 2”. Also do you have any brown interior parts as I’m doing up a 2.0 ghia? Also the bumper parts sound interesting too
