Re: New Car Programme on TV Soon

I see the flipping bangers boys are up to their old tricks! I can't see the logic of spending money on new bumpers and other items, and also getting the wheels powder coated, once they'd made the decision not to finish the Beetle and to sell it as a project. I wouldn't have thought that they'd reco...

Re: Rear leaf springs for laser

I've got a pair of multileafs that I took off the 3 litre that I recently broke. Bushes are all good and there's plenty of life left in the springs.

Re: As this is Rant and Rave....

It's not you, the country is fucked, PC, race card, feminists and numerous other things that get banded about. The media also like to jump on the bandwagon and whip up a frenzy over what is in reality not even worth the airtime. None of these protesters do their causes any good in the way they condu...

Re: 1979 Capri 2.0 "Ghia"

Can you move the bottom flap by operating the lever without the cable connected? if so then you should be able to set up the movement by the cable. If you give me a bell at the workshop I'll try to talk you through it. I never disconnect the cables when I'm building the heaters, I set them up while ...

Re: Swapping final drive in diff

The LSD axle is the same ratio as the standard 3 litre (3.09 -1) if you fit a shorter diff then you will improve acceleration but at the cost of the top end and you'll find the car is revving higher at speed. Personally I would leave well alone.

Re: Fuse blowing

Fuse 1
Interior lights
