Re: Reflective number plate infill

I remember them well, there was a time when loads of Capris certainly had the red infill fitted, less so the bodykit. Not seen one for ages though, or heard mention of. Most likely place would be ebay, but I imagine you`ll have a wait. Unusually, for me, I thought they looked quite good.

Re: Who Remembers?

Teenage pregnancy rates in the UK are actually falling and apparently it`s because kids no longer meet up in the real world and you can`t get pregnant on social media (as yet, Im sure there`ll be an app soon :D ) Whilst every generation reacts to the new, there are certain absolutes which are defini...

Re: Capri-stang

I don`t know, for what it`s cost to modify that, they could have just bought a proper Mustang and felt happy and fulfilled? It`s sort of a bit too `fussy` for me, a bit of this, a bit of that, although admittedly it looks well done.

HS2

Just a bewildered observation really. On the news, apparently HS2 is now expected to cost 3x -- THREE TIMES - the original estimate! So £100 Bn from £30 odd. How can you have a `quote` for something and be £70,000,000,000 quid out? Rhetorical I know but Jesus Christ! AND, I saw Newsnight the other n...

Re: Axle location kit help

I like to think , when dissagreing with someone that if we were on opposite sides of a pub table it would remain friendly . The thing is Hamish, across a pub table non-verbal communication can put words into a context: I`m smiling while I call you a xxxx; my face is crimson with rage while I call y...

Very unlikely as the Mk3 leading edge has a different profile, coming down over the lghts? Maybe you could make it fit but it would look wrong.

Re: Dash repair

Don`t know how successful, long term, a repair would be as once the plastic/foam of the original structure has started to deteriorate it will continue to do so even after the cracks have been filled so there`s a danger that new cracks will form in time, possibly at the same places? From past experie...

Re: Weather

TBH, there`s a danger that vaping is just going to replace one problem with another, OK you remove the carcinogens in tar, but you still have the nicotine and all the problems that may cause (cos it`s never really been studied) - only now it`s seen as safe so it`s almost encouraged. A drug with no d...

Re: Who Remembers?

Paul, When I was about 11, I had a little `mileometer` which basically fitted onto a front fork, had a rotating 8 pronged star which was hit by a pin on a front spoke each revolution. The turns of the star were added on a littlr numeric display. It was really neat, only about 1 1/2" wide and it mean...

Re: New Car Programme on TV Soon

I'm not sure, Steve. The dialect is a bit different in North Wales, but it would be pronounced sort of like suck-nant around here. Andrew, could well be, bearing in mind I`ve never seen it written down, this is from childhood memories, only ever spoken by English people (who couldn`t get their tong...

Re: New Car Programme on TV Soon

Paul,
I did know really... Bryn = hill IIRC? I`m sure there`s a Bryn synkin (phonetic, sorry for mis-spelling) on Anglesey, or at least N Wales.
edit: Andrew, sychnant, would that be pronounced sinkin?? It`s doing my head in now!
