Re: New Car Programme on TV Soon

If you're going to watch any of the car programmes, watch Fantomworks. It's the most honest, upfront of any shows, the best since Mark Evans did his restoration projects.
The rest are just TV bullshit.

Re: Wanted for mk3 laser

I have new bonnet lip trim. Wiper not working is usually a bad connection on the contact rather than the motor. The non working heater is almost certainly a knackered motor.

Leave it off and fit an inline filter between the fuel pump and carburettor.

Re: Speedo Cable

What I am struggling with now is shipping body panels, small stuff isn't an issue but wings, bonnets etc, there's no chance. Have you tried this company Martin - https://www.wheelcarrier.co.uk/acatalog/store.html Cheers for the link. I'll get in touch but I suspect they will volumise large panels w...

Re: Speedo Cable

The ones listed on E Bay, Burton Power etc are all wrong. They are for the 3 litre /4 speed 2.8i. I'm pretty sure I have a used original cable at the workshop.
I am back in on Monday so I can confirm then.

Re: Prices are dropping of late I've noticed.

What really baffles me is who is shelling out that kind of money on cars like this, Wrong interior completely, obviously been given a quick blow over and tart up. Exhaust system looks a total lash up, Engine bay looks total shite and that's after only having glanced for a few seconds. You have to ad...

Re: Crankshaft rear bush

Obvious way to me if you can't pull the bush out is to grind it away from the inside out using a rotary burr. As well as thinning out the wall of the bush it will generate heat at the same time.

Re: Car Shows Return

Try being a trader at shows! with the exception of John at CCI who has always been very fair with trade pitch prices without exception all of the others, Ford Fair, Fast For, NEC etc all charge astronomical pitch fees which is why I no longer trade there.

I have a couple in the back of my workshop, plan was to tinker with them while the Capri stuff is quiet - Not a bloody chance.

Re: Minder Capri caught fire

That was a lucky escape but is a straightforward rebuild. I did a MK3 2.0 Sport some years ago that had more damage than that and it wasn't a massive job.
