Heres a picture of the front of the Car, let your creativity run wild Mc Tool. I've put 20 watt bulbs in it now for ease. :mrgreen:
That looks sweet as, love the quarter bumpers! Are they from a Mk2 escort per chance?

I'd heard that the wipers go swish, swish, swish - is this also true?

Re: Not a Capri

It's a girl's first car, haven't got the heart to tell her to crush it She sounds like the sensitive type, you'd better not tell her Danny thinks she is a he...... :xd: Andrew. Is there another type other than sensitive? I forgot I can't assume anyone's gender anymore upon pain of death :lol:

..05 Fiat Panda 1.2 Speedo is all over the place and under reading. Is there anything else I should know before I order a new cable? Like do these cars still use cables etc :lol: Thanks in advance! Don't Panda to it's every whim! :lol: I also forgot to actually answer Tom's question: Don't Know.

Re: Not a Capri

Burn it.

I had an 07 plate Panda for about 5 years and it tried to kill me on multiple occasions - it's an evil car at heart and nothing can change that so I had mine crushed :lol:

Good luck fixing it!

Re: I'm all for modifications, but....

If i recall correctly this was on facepaint and was made by a guy in Sri Lanka? I can't imagine the parts supply for mk1 capris in that part of the world are that abundant and to keep one on the road is better than to have let it die. Also, we generally always preach about how 'it's your car you can...

Re: Nice local ford meet this morning....

What that means is that Danny can keep buying Capris until his drive is full... And after that he'll just start parking them on the tennis courts... :lol: I'm currently in the process of trying to buy a house at the moment and my olds can't wait to have their driveway back, along with all the parts...

Re: Minimeet

Great pics, looks like you guys had a fun day! Pedantry time.... If the Mustang isn’t a V8 is it not a 4cyl 2.3 turbo (basically detuned Focus RS engine)? The yanks got a n/a 3.7 V6 as their entry level engine but it was never available here, and seems a bit pointless tbh. I can recommend the new M...

Re: Drivers tail light & side light not working

I recently had an issue with one of my tail lights not working, and one of the number plate lights. I unscrewed the number plate light holder and it fixed the tail light problem - don't ask me how though

Might be worth trying?

Cheers

I also have 5 slots courtesy of Tom so could put some on the S as well as I hate the wheels on that, but it's not moving anytime soon anyway :lol:

Re: Minimeet

Was a brilliant day!

Great to see both Daisy and Tom again after so long, and was good fun blasting about the outskirts of Cambridge making a lot of noise :lol:

Also, I got some Slotmags out of it :D
