Re: Rear seat backrest removal

If you only want to keep the material dry, then you can easily remove the rear pads by simply undoing the 10mm nut in the middle of the back at the bottom, under the semicircular cut in the rear carpet. Then push the protruding bolt in and lift the pad off the frame. Much easier and no fiddly setti...

Re: Uninvited guest

You need to get a cat. I've just spent half an hour chasing a bloody mouse round our kitchen that the little sod brought in. That's my excercise for the day! I'd gladly pay good money to watch that Paul! :lol: My GL looked like it had a whole family of mice living in it at some point! Took the rear...

Re: Custom front valance

The deep dish 4 spokes totally transform your car, mate. Looks gorgeous :wub: Guessing they're 7.5 not 7's makes a huge difference They are indeed 7.5's give the car a much better stance and when you look at it head on or from behind it properly fills the arches whereas the 7s make it look a little...

I was thinking of going satin black... Chrome does sound awesome but would be the only chrome part on a black car so might look a little out of place :lol:

Re: Leaf spring snapped

Changing the springs can be relatively easy, mine was a massive ball-ache as they were the originals and rusted to buggery! The other thing I would say is that I had multi leaf springs on my laser originally, they broke, so replaced them with multi springs again to keep with the originality and they...

Re: 2.8 a reg in Brookland colours

I'd imagine that the current or previous owners just liked the colour of the brooklands green and therefore had the car re-sprayed in that colour, it wasn't offered on capris before the Brooklands
