Re: 1000 mile laser

I'm also sceptical to be honest! Considering the state of the front valence alone something must have happened at some stage to make it that bad!

1000 mile laser

If the description is to be believed this car has sat since 1986 in the same barn and has only 1006 miles on the clock... Very impressive if so and I think not a bad price for a car with that kind of history, but the state of the thing! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ford-Capri-1-6-laser/264136498162?ha...

Re: New Capri owner! - Need some help!!

You could leave the original radio in place and fit a new stereo in the glove box, it's an option that a lot of owners choose. There is even a 'mount' you can buy at Halfords to make this easier, and you may wish to buy a stereo with a remote which makes life even easier. I've done this on both of ...

Re: New Capri owner! - Need some help!!

The radio you have must be an earlier one, my 86 laser has the same radio as below (apart from mine does say FM is has U buttons - this is a late radio so changed it again) https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ford-Capri-Injection-ESRT32-PS-Digital-Radio-Brooklands/292906583980?hash=item443297c7ac:g:6SgAAOSw~...

Re: New Capri owner! - Need some help!!

Welcome to the forum! If you have the original radio from the Laser then it will definitely pick up FM, I think from memory that the 'L' button is for Longwave (AM) and the 'M' is for mediumwave (FM) so press the M and scroll through the frequency using the right hand dial Also yes there is a green ...

Was looking for a second hand one as doing Capri up from scratch pretty much but thanks for the info will probably end up having to get the second one on your list
Thanks


Definitely worth getting in touch with Martin (Caprigear on here) to see if he has one first then :)

Cheers

Re: Radiator

How much are you looking to spend and what is the plan/spec of the car? When my original rad went I replaced it with one of these; https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Aluminum-radiator-For-Ford-Capri-MK1-MK2-MK3-Kent-1-3L-1-6L-2-0-Essex-Escort-1-6/152945664601?fits=Car+Make%3AFord%7CModel%3ACapri&hash=it...
