Re: Restoration of Underside of 2.8 capri - terminology

Restoration of Underside of 2.8 capri - terminology

Hi all. Was hoping someone could help. I am looking to tidy up the underside of my brookie. Could you please tell me the names of the two parts of the underside I have highlighted in red? Slso how best to clean them up? Would replacing them be the best bet? Many thanks J http://i36.photobucket.com/a...

So it's an electronic boost controller then.... ;)
