Re: Air con

they're easier to see from the inside of the car, I'll elaborate...

if you fold back the carpet behind the pedals, just above the clutch pedal, the sound deadening pad has the templates ready to be cut.

I'll ask my friend for pictures from both the interior and exterior and post them.

Re: 1979 2.0 Ghia

I notice from your profile pic that you have fog lights, what switch is fitted? Hi Arthur, foglights on my Capri were installed in 2007 when guys in Spain restored it (before I bought Capri). Switch was not original and was on wrong place next to warning lights switch and fader front/rear speakers ...

I used to work for Ford in the mid-80's
I bet that was great. What did you do? What cars did you see?
yep it was great, held various positions... the highlight strange as it may seem was seeing the prototypes heavily camouflaged of the MK5 Escort four years before it was released

Re: 1979 2.0 Ghia

Hi Tom, My foglights and the genuine brackets were installed by the Ford dealer before delivery, and the switch is a simple on/off toggle, like the ones available in accessory shops. Not sure the reason for this, it's in the blank where the manual choke would sit, maybe they didn't want to drill the...

Re: 1979 2.0 Ghia

Sorry for the late reply... yes the switch is between the steering wheel and the ashtray in the space where the manual choke would be, strangely its not a genuine Ford switch, tbh I've never seen a genuine Ford switch... mine is a simple on/off toggle and its wired through the sidelights, they switc...

Another good place is fixed to the front of the seat l...

Re: Leaning (leaf springs)

I have pictures of my car brand new (2.0 Ghia) showing a slight lean at the back to the right (drivers side). With the car a couple of months old the leaf springs were changed under warranty, no change... and the front springs were checked for possible height discrepancies. When I took over the car ...

Re: Spotlamp wirering.

Yes my laser has the wiring already in place as it runs the Dip Dim so it will just plug in and play . This only works with spots lights as your need a relay and switch for fog lights . when I fitted genuine Ford fog lights years ago, I plugged them into the connectors in the front panel and then u...
