I can appreciate what people say, we're all looking for a bargin it's true, I've always felt there was a bit of an 'un written rule' of comrade...

It looks identical to this one http://uploads.turbosport.co.uk/Remote0 ... 8049417jpg

Ford Sierra Cosworth Article

Hi all, apologies for a shameless plug for a friend. But some of you may have heard of Vince Woodman the race driver than had fame in the Capri's back in the day. His grandson did a great article on a very rare Sierra Vince owns - thought you might like a read :D http://revmatch.me/2016/03/26/fit-fo...

1987 Ford Capri MK3 1.6 Laser Red (2.0S replica) for sale

Hi All, It is with a very heavy heart I'm considering selling my Capri. It has just got a clean MOT last week and I'm looking to potentially move out of the country and just cannot keep my collection of 4 cars! It started life as a 1.6 Laser and was purchased by myself in 2011. It is now a 2.0S repl...

Re: Capri Mk3 1.6/2.0 Axle questions (Drum sizes)

Thanks boys and girls for all the comments and advice. I think I'm going to try and get the whole axle from the scrappy. It might be a bit stiff but hopefully not seized, the car dials were saying 84k on the clock 'MILEAGE GUARANTEED' sticker plastered over the front of it :applaud: Apparently the c...

Thanks for the reply, The diff plug is just stuck beyond belief, we have a plug remover with a breaker bar and one pulling one pushing into it.... it's just started tearing out and rounding off. When I had the whole axle out I removed the cover and put some fresh oil in (guessing how much it needed)...

Re: Whats the solution to damaged or missing rubber trim

Hi, I'm going to say very quietly I have a laser that I took these mouldings off and threw away :shock: However at the scrappy near me is a 1984 2.0GL - the thing is completely knackered but I think it has the side trim on it still. I'm popping up Saturday potentially to grab some bits off of it - I...

my 1.6 laser cost £2k on insurance the first year. I was 19, no no claims and had been driving about a year - That was with tesco which actually worked out a lot cheaper than the bigger names
