Re: Fish net head rests

I've got 1 original capri S fishnet headrest in black vinyl. I was thinking of selling it as I can't find another to match it and they go for silly money now. I did plan to dye the vinyl dark Gray to match my early 2.8i blue check Recaro's I've got. But I think I might just stick with the original s...

Re: Ex Pressed panels MK3 wings

Re: What to do with my Laser?

That's the same set up on my 1.6 pinto thanks to Dave "340truck" who built the engine a few years ago. I'm planning on purchasing a 4:2:1 manifold and system next year to go on it. :)

Re: Dash Speaker ?

When i first brought my capri I wondered why there was speaker holes on the dash but no speaker. Then I thought why did ford keep the holes when there's no speaker I just thought it was maybe a way of keeping the radio/cassette cool when its on.

Re: Weber Carb rebuilt

Hi have you had the carb reconditioned yet? As it is easy to do yourself. I did mine about 3 years ago and the cars ran spot on ever since. The auto choke works perfectly still which it didn't before. The genuine Weber service kit for the 32/36 dgav carb was £20 last time I got one and it comes with...
