Re: Where is the Capri When You Need it?

Hi Danny, Yes that video works. Heck your car sounds amazing through there! :D If I'm not mistaken, that's the Brynglas tunnel on the M4, one of my favourite places to drive the Capri!. :D You shouldn't have crossed that solid white line though.....

Re: Mk3 GL Radio Query

I'm having a re-trim at the moment and am also pondering speaker placement - I have a set of Mk2 Ghia kick panels which have carpeting on them, same shape and fitting as the standard plastic kick panels except that the lower bit is entirely carpet with no plastic behind it. I'm wondering if I could...

Re: Mk3 GL Radio Query

I might be wrong, but I believe these radios were still mono rather than stereo? Which would have meant no need for dual speakers in the doors. I think you're right David, must be Mono as there is only the one speaker in the dash, can't fathom the size of the thing or where I'll find a replacement ...

Re: Selling my capri

Thanks! No interest as yet. just a cheeky offer of 5k which is less than i paid for it lol. Had loads of watchers on eBay but no offers so took it down :/ I think a lot of people (me included!) like to watch things on eBay and use it as a guide to see what prices are doing rather than actually bidd...

Re: Laser + GL

Thanks for the birthday messages guys, sorry for not responding sooner I've been away in Rome for the week! What mods did you have to do to get your 1600 up to 103 bhp ? That's a very figure for a 2 litre Pinto let alone a 1.6 To be fair I'm really surprised and happy its pushing 103, it's got a sta...

Re: Dash Protectors

My dash has more cracks than a strip club or building site, so don't think I need one of these but they do look awesome!

Re: Weather Strip Replacemet

I must say that I tried to get the door cards off first (drivers side) but couldn't get the door release latch off. I pushed it forward but barely moved, the more I tried the more it moved. I will try again when I get chance and all write it up. I took some photos of the inside of the door with wea...

Hey Danny...am just loving that stainless manifold mate. Looks absolutely stunning mate. Really looks very good quality indeed. Looking forward to hearing it all when the rest is fitted. Did you say you are getting a 3" straight tailpipe as per whats on at the moment or did you say 6" :sh...

Hi Danny, I'm not surprised that you are pleased with that, it looks like a high quality bit of workmanship. It was a bit of a gamble going the stainless route, but it looks like you've made the right decision. Andrew. Thanks Andrew, I'm glad I did it as well - knew it was a bit of a gamble but loo...

Re: Breakdown Cover

What I always do is hop between RAC/AA each year - they always want to bump up the renewal prices but if you change every year then you get the benefit of the 'new customer' discounts/bonuses that they offer every year! I am tempted to start using Greenflag as well and rotate every three years as well
