Front Valance Corner Repair Panels

Hi guys,
Looking for each corner of the front valance in repair panels. I swear at some point I've seen these about but can't for the life of me find them now.
Any pointers would be greatly appreciated. :)

Thanks!

Re: Widest Wheels with Standard Arches

I have 7.5J RS4 wheels from JBW (here's the link https://www.johnbrownwheels.com/products/jbw-75-x-13-rs4.html) that fit my car without any adjustment Cheers Danny Cheers Danny! Nice wheels! Interestingly, JBW do "pepperpot" steel wheels for relatively cheap and they almost look the same as LS whee...

Hi I had a set of 8”/14” on my 3.0 litre and it was very low and had not problems
Do you know the offset of those wheels? :)

Widest Wheels with Standard Arches

Evening all! I'm looking at banding some steel wheels for my Capri as I want the original look but with a bit of stance. Trying to calculate the maximum width that I can get away with without any modification to the car. The car is currently sitting 1" lower on the front which is matched by the back...

Re: Springs moving in seats - hose trick

Cheers Oily! Great explanation! The springs are from RallySport and appear to be identical to the originals but -1".

Did the Ford seats fit at the top and the bottom of the spring?

Re: Springs moving in seats - hose trick

The springs are slightly lower than the originals so with no load they are able to twist slightly when you move the steering. Only happens at low speeds and tight steering locks. Can you remember whether the springs had sleeves on the top or the bottom? Or both?

Re: Springs moving in seats - hose trick

Haha, spooky! I'm thinking heat shrink on the top and bottom for the spring would be a nicer solution. I guess all you need is to create enough friction to stop the spring moving. Shouldn't need much once it's sandwiched in the strut...

Springs moving in seats - hose trick

Hi all, I've just taken the front suspension to bits because I'm fed up of the springs going "PWANG" every time I do slow manoeuvring. I've read that the trick to stop this is to put garden hose on the spring. Do you put the hose on the top and bottom? I'm surprised nowhere sells replacements? Does ...

Re: 2.8i as a family car/daily driver?

Love the idea! Depending on the size of the front occupants the Capri can really only be seen as a 2+2 rather than a 4 seater. For short trips it's fine but for a longer trip it's not overly comfy. I can only fit back there if I'm laying across the seat. My only other concern would be for safety. Th...

Righto, 100oC it is! :) I guess I don't want the fan running too often if it doesn't need to.

Re: Electric Fan Installation

Hi Paul! Hope you're well.

Brilliant, 32mm it is. On at 100oC that seems a little late? What would be the down side of going for the on at 90oC? I think I'd like to keep the coolant temp below boiling point if possible. Saying that... I was never aware of what the temp was with the viscous fan.

Re: Electric Fan Installation

Thanks for the heads up! Deffo worth looking into. I was tidying up the loom of the car last night figuring a good place to nick 12v. I removed a aux light which was connected to the second fuse prong from the back of the car. This could be where I nick my 12v (assuming it's switched). :)

Electric Fan Installation

Hi guys - it's been a while! This has been asked a million times, I know... I've been through every post. I'm wanting to get shot of the viscous fan. It's currently a fan I've nicked from a Land Rover and is oversized and probably sapping a few ponies. I also like the idea of having lots of space ar...
