Re: Tailgate Struts

I measured conductivity and it was strange. Yes, mine gave strange readings on a multimeter also, and Clive at Tickover mentioned this too. Not sure why but for some reason they do seem to create a multimeter anomaly. However, using some makeshift wiring and a bulb/battery as a test, the bulb does ...

I've had a look, and the ends of mine are both facing forward but point down a little, somewhere in between the 7 or 8 on a clock. Mine differ a little bit but probably depends on how tightly the window(s) are closed.

Re: Window winder handles

It's an interesting question actually, I guess there will have to be a survey of sorts where we all post our positions and the mean average will be it! I'll check mine later.

Re: Decal and badge

Decals do seem to differ, depending (I assume) on who manufacturers them and/or when. For example I have a spare Laser decal which differs slightly from the ones on the car. So if that's important to you I'd definitely make sure that the one to be supplied matches any existing ones which you have on...

Re: Capri Club Magazine Late?

Well I did phone them a few days ago and was told that a replacement would be sent out. As this hasn't arrived either, I've phoned them again today only to be told that they might not have even sent it out yet, which I think is poor. Hopefully I'll get one next week at some point.

Just wondering if others have received this months magazine as mine seems very late again. Will give them a ring if so.

Strut Top Nut Cover

Just wondering if anyone has, or knows where to get, one of the little black plastic covers from the strut top nut, I've had one missing for ages.

Re: Police Capri Revisited

Thanks Andrew. I was aware of the Irish plates but was glad to read the other info you posted. Typically, that show/festival, which I've been to numerous times, does seem to have a number of Irish visitors/exhibitors.

So true Jason, and even now I wouldn't like to come up against that chasing me, it looks the business. Much better than the yellow/blue livery they have now which wouldn't scare a baby.

I think it's a ruling by the distance selling regulations, or similar. Some still try to wiggle out of it.

Re: Auto box changing up too soon

they said they will post me the correct one if I sent it back I assume they would refund the return postage costs Danny? Although some companies try to refuse, I think it's illegal not to. So would be interested to know their stance, as I don't like to use companies who do that. If something is not...

Police Capri Revisited

It was good to see a police Capri which I've seen before at a festival in North Wales recently. How brilliant it must have been to see these charging up and down the roads back in the day. Unless they were following you of course.

Quick question, is there a reason why you didn't replace the points?

I was thinking the same, I find it pointless ( :) ) to try and reset the points, much better off replacing if you can.
