How much is your seller asking for it? Then someone will be able to tell you if that's about right, a bargain, a rip off, etc.

Re: Ford capri D838ADG

Thanks Andrew, I always read through the classifieds myself, the cars and the parts, although the ads do seem to run for some months, I can't imagine that the items are available for that length of time.

Good choice! :) Do you get the Capri Club magazine at all? I'm sure there was one or two for sale in there recently, they have quite a good cars for sale section. If not I could always take a look for you.

Re: Rear springs 1.6 laser

I'd stick with the multi leaf, you can get them, this company has them, although expensive so I'd definitely shop around first. https://www.burtonpower.com/leaf-spring-pair-ford-capri-mk2-3-inc-3-0-not-2-8-mfor3900.html Think you can get them here too - https://britishclassiccarparts.com/collections...

Re: new record for destroying a cam?

Are you using 20/50 oil by any chance Danny, I'd be very wary if so, especially in this cold weather as it becomes more treacle like and may not work its way into the necessary nooks and crannies, until it warms up but of course there may be wear on components until then so it may not be worth chanc...

Re: Underbody clean up - 2021 recommendations

Garden railings don't tend to flex Hi Martin, hope you're keeping well. Garden gates do flex/spring quite a bit, especially larger ones and/or those made with thinner material. Certainly, double gates I used to have at one point sprung and flexed quite a bit. A neighbour has a single gate covering ...

Re: Underbody clean up - 2021 recommendations

Once clean does anyone have any recommendations what to do next. Depends on your objective really, are you wanting it to look mint for shows, etc. or more concerned about being practical, using something you can keep on top of over the years and keep the car protected. My mindset is more the latter...

Why don't you just contact Martin (CapriGear), and ask him if he's come across your car/reg at all. He's been in the game a lot of years and has a ton of experience and contacts.
