Re: 1983 Cabaret

:D the 1.6 pinto? I'm sure there's better. Although it's not bad for 72bhp compared to my 2 litre Cortina. The 1.6 does feel it on an incline.

Brake shoes/cylinder recommendations

Did the rockers the other day and did the timing belt,fresh 20w50 in and new oil filter today,and she has livened up :burnout: .Inspected the shoes and there's still some meat on the shoes,it's just the springs have aged.

Re: Make steering easier / adding power steering

Getting in and out of cars is my biggest issue and finding good parks became an art :D . Before the chop I needed to get the car door right open to gain access ,you'd be surprised just how many ignorant cnuts there are out there (you may not ...actually ;) ) who park so close I can't get back in .....

Weetabix is definitely cheapest option though.

Re: Cabaret underside footage

Thats a fine looking workshop you got there and to have a 4 post lift must be very useful indeed, especially when working underneath. How lucky are you !!! Good luck with the work on your Capri mate. For a daily use classic it really is in very decent condition. You don't see many Cabaret Capris th...

Also,the windscreen washer pump wasn't working,so I checked the ground first,as the loom might be at fault. I took off the earth wire to the pump,and used...

Re: Cabaret underside footage

Apart from the rear spring mounting points/arches, the rest doesn`t look that bad does it? I`d check what`s under the fresh underseal at the front footwell though, never a good sign. Overall I`m sure it`s fixable. Can you fabricate/weld? I'd say 90% of the shell is solid,considering it was someones...
