Re: Good old days.

Absolutely the good old days. Stoneleigh was a brilliant venue. The car park was every bit as good as the show itself. We didn't realise then just how good the scene was. Fast forward 30 odd years to what we have now - depressing.

Re: Radiator.

Re cores are not that much cheaper than a new Rad. Try Richard at Boston Motorcool, top guy and fair price.

Re: Salvage Hunters Capri

If I remember correctly it sold for a tad under £12k, as for original, it's a bloody long way off that!

Re: Cheapest Capri's On Sale.

That’s a good question as I was watching somebody on you tube or TV talking about pre war cars that are not making the money they did a few years ago , Rovers seem to be still available at good cheap prices , MG-TF have stuck around the £1000 pound mark for some time as the Pumas accept the 17 race...

Re: dash metal frame wanted

Re: Replacement Door seals advice

I tend to use MK1/MK2 Escort seals now especially of the cars with the thicker cards. The seals are not mitred but they are slightly thinner so you don't have to slam the doors . I usually find that the CCI ones work on cars with the thinner cards although I always put some holes in the rubber so th...

Re: Bangers and cash Vs Car SOS

What car was featured on the show this time? Where does Bangers and Cash fit into this? Sorry, but I'm confused.... Andrew. The second paragraph should read Tonights Bangers and Cash that should make more sense to you :) Think it's repeated tonight at 9.00 on Yesterday channel. Copied from the web;...

Re: Heater Box Removal

I can tell you that you certainly don't remove the console, steering wheel or the stalks in order to take out the heater. I've done hundreds of them and only once did I disturb the console and that was on a 2.8i that had been fitted with a massive air conditioning unit.
