Re: Ignition barrel de sticking

That last part I can't get in - do they match each individual key as well? If so I won't be able to match this key to it I'm guessing.... Hi Danny, Although I've never deconstructed an ignition lock, I'm guessing that you are correct and the bit sticking up locks the steering when the key is wit dr...

Re: Ignition barrel de sticking

Yeah that makes sense - I've spent ages matching up all the pins so that it all sits flush with the barrel when the key is in place, but the last part is the only thing that now doesn't draw in - is it part of the steering lock and could I live without it? That last part I can't get in - do they mat...

Re: Capri Spotted!

Actually, it was very windy that day. Even still, you wouldn't get that situation with a fitted stormforce cover. Andrew. I think it depends on how much rain your stormforce sees... I've had two or three and after they've been rained on a few times they just stop being waterproof and when its dry b...

Re: Ignition barrel de sticking

Quick question if I may - I've taken my barrel apart to clean it all up and get the key working as it was on a different key, but I can't for the life of me get the barrel to go back into the casing with the last bit in place... I know it goes right at the end of the lock and get's half in place but...

I watched this a while back simply because it had a 40minute chase in it - I don't remember there even being a plot, just a lot of nice old cars screaming around :lol:

Re: Rocker Cover - Just cant stop myself.....

I can't believe that you didn't just change 'Cosworth' to 'Pinto' !!
Would have looked the nuts! :lol:

Incidentally you'll have to let me know what the name of this company is on facebook as I've been considering having a similar style cover for a while

Cheers

Re: Future Classics

So what we're saying is everyone should stop buying any new cars at all, keep using the cars that are already on the road as while they are less environmentally friendly emissions wise, they've already been built which causes a load more emissions anyway and we'll all be fine!

Re: Is this a sensible price ??!!

That IS annoying. Maybe the above is true but perhaps the guy was going to use it but the project/restoration didn't happen for some reason which happens quite often i.e. change of circumstances etc Wayne He does have several other Capri items on Ebay too! Some of which seem to be alright prices so...

Re: Wanted full lock set and rear quarter windows

Just as a heads up, full lock sets can be pretty pricey and also now pretty rare unfortuantely... I've recently purchased separate door locks and am changing over the tumblers inside the locks of the doors and the ignition barrel so they all work off one key (Previously there was a key that did the ...

Luckily Danny there are people like you that are enthusiastic about the older cars :)
I also still buy CD's for the record! :lol:

I also don't get how they've just written off vinyl as it's recently had such a resurgence in popularity they started mass producing them all again

Re: Future Classics

What will become of our cars when we want to sell them on? Yes collectors will always want something to sit and look at, but to drive and show I don't see them being wanted by many :?
