2.8i radiator

I took my car out for a drive last night, only to get home and find that the radiator had suffered a massive failure - i.e. there was NO water left in it. It looks like it's split somewhere toward the bottom of the rad (the bottom hose seems fine) and water now comes out nearly as fast as you can pu...

Re: New old stock half leather driver's seat: 2.8i special

Hi Andrew.

I did think about fitting it, but it would have made the other seats look a bit shabby by comparison!

I've since bought another interior that is in excellent condition, so I'll be selling my old interior in the next months or so.

Kind regards.

Hi.

I'll post the link once it starts.

This is the link (on this site) to the seat - with some pictures.

Re: What will my Capri do to this?

I wasn't being insulting. ------------------------ No worries, then. It's just that it sounded a little insulting! I expect you're right about the VW 'scene' having a few people like that; but my experience tells me that all scenes have at least one idiot. The trick is not to take them too seriously.

Re: What will my Capri do to this?

Nice looking car, hope you and the Mrs have some fun with it Jack. ------------------------------- Thanks Peter. It's great fun, albeit a little agricultural! The wife has always said that she wanted a Beetle - so she was made up when it turned up on the drive! It's the least I could do; after all, ...

Oh uuurgh. It's a 1303!!!! It's not a proper beetle I'm afraid. They are even outcast at air cooled events. Nasty beetles.

What will my Capri do to this?

I've just bought this for my wife - as she has gamely put up with me for the past 10-years! I'm a bit worried what the offspring between this and my 2.8i will look like. http://i1305.photobucket.com/albums/s557/JackWalsh2/004_zps94111f30.jpg http://i1305.photobucket.com/albums/s557/JackWalsh2/006_zp...

Re: Wanted - Capri Club Mags

Hi Russ.

As an addendum, I don't appear to have July 2013 - not sure what's happened to it?

Hopefully, the remainder will help to complete your collection.

Re: Wanted - Capri Club Mags

Hi Russ.

I hope this finds you well.

I have the 2013 and 2014 editions you are seeking. PM me your address and I'll send them up.

No charge, before you ask - unless you can stretch to peace on earth and goodwill to all.

Kind regards.

Re: NOS Half-Leather Driver's Seat (very boring post)

Hi Dan/VP. I totally understand what you're saying, but..... I think it's good that there are lots of different approaches to Capri ownership - those that like to modify them; or keep things standard; race them, use them daily or those that like to preserve them. Personally, I fit into the final cat...

Re: NOS Half-Leather Driver's Seat (very boring post)

Indeed.

I might either put it in a cupboard upstairs, or donate* it to someone who has an absolutely mint 2.8i Special.

*Sell, probably.

Re: 2.8 Special

NOS seat, which is probably going to make the rest of the interior look scruffy! http://i1305.photobucket.com/albums/s557/JackWalsh2/DSC06250_zps6155ce5e.jpg http://i1305.photobucket.com/albums/s557/JackWalsh2/DSC06251_zps909f8816.jpg http://i1305.photobucket.com/albums/s557/JackWalsh2/DSC06245_zpse...

NOS Half-Leather Driver's Seat (very boring post)

(The following post is probably of little or no interest to most folks, so feel free to skip this one!) I've been looking for a mint half-leather interior for a while or, more specifically, a driver's seat. Like many out there, my current driver's seat has some wear to the bolster. A couple of days ...

Leaf Springs 2.8i

Hi, one of my leaf springs is starting to sag a little.

Does anyone have any advice as to where is the best place to get a replacement pair - and, also, what is a reasonable price?

Many thanks to anyone that can help.

Cheers.
