Re: rear seat belts mk3

It's not a bad price for what it is, but I also wouldn't say it was cheap haha

Yeah I bolted mine in sort of loosely, continued to adjust it so it would work as it should, then got a torque wrench on it and tightened it up to the specs suggested in Haynes

Re: rear seat belts mk3

Previously I just got something like this

Appreciate it still isn't cheap but is at least new rather than old and mouldy!

Re: Who Remembers?

I do love an open fire - my mum used to have one at her old house and it was lovely.
I always found the cleaning equipment made a better ornament as opposed to actually using any of it :lol:

Re: Most Expensive Capri ?

I know some people get excited about better-than-factory restorations and all that (and it is impressive) but its not something I really get, like trailer-ing cars to shows just for everyone to have a look at, then take it home after. This is being sold as an artefact to look at, and for someone to...

Re: Time

I can definitely relate - since I bought the 3.0 in 2019 I've barely touched it and it needs a full resto basically. I stripped the interior as it was quick and easy, dropped the steering rack and front suspension all by the summer of 19 and it's been sat on bricks ever since and I haven't touched i...

Re: Weber 34 ICH

I ran one of these for several years without any issues - but I was using it as a daily!
It may be brand new but that doesn't mean it's not faulty - Steve's check would be my first point of call, possibly could be a faulty jet if it's constantly letting fuel by when it shoudlnt?

I mean, if it clears out the TOWIE lot I'm more than happy to let it go off! :lol:
Don't worry, the closest active volcanoes to us are either Vesuvius or that one in Iceland!

I can't help but wonder how a "wellness retreat" can cost £4000 a week. :shock: It sounds like a good business to be in though. Andrew. Wales is meant to be peaceful isn't it Andrew? Open a wellness retreat from your shed at the end of the garden and start charging £4k a week - you'll mak...

Re: Capri hot start problem

It is a bit of a shame as the VV does have a kind of historical interest value - it IS how the cars came after all. But beyond that, it really doesn`t have anything going for it, as Danny and other.... people have said, the DGAV is just better in every way. Plus you can bin all the pipes, valves, t...
