Re: Quick release steering wheel

I will be fitting a quick release to mine, but i have not found any that seem to have a good fit.

Going to get a boss wire eroded in time and then fit a decent quick release system to it. Bet it won't be cheap though!

Re: Undersealing

If the car has been always undersealed then it is good to top up for a time. But at somepoint, it is best to look underneath and see what it really looks like. I reckon 10years is a good point to strip back and take a good look and then it makes you more worried as underseal can also hide rot where ...

Re: Power steering is now a must

Not another one to repeat what is above, but the Corsa C conversions are very cheap especially if you source the main guts from a donor car and are willing to do work.
I am holding onto my scrappy Corsa C just in case there bits like that i need when i get my Capper going!

Re: No MOT.....

Since i own several cars which are exempt i actually feel it is a silly move, but it is just going to get worse. In one respect they are making it appealing, but in time i am sure they will use these excuses to get these cars off the road entirely! Common sense kicks in and we should say no, we do n...

Slight bit of an update, but a empty block & heads are coming within the next few weeks so it can be mocked up in the engine bay.
now just trying to find a tremec Mustang T5 gearbox to fit onto it so i can mock up the 302 together with the gearbox.

Re: Capri V10

Still a great project and the colour will look awesome.

Re: Parking In Gear

Maybe the next day you tried it your engine lost it's compression! haha But obviously the lower the gear you go for the more torque there is so you need more force to overcome the resistance. Lots of factors could affect this, but you could have got the wrong gear, but you could have a warmer oil si...

Re: Leaf spring snapped

There is also a company called Stafford Vehicle Components than can source leaf springs, but i enquired with them about de-cambered springs for my Cpari and you can request this for additional charge and they will make them suitable for different height by flattening them out ;)

Re: Important ! Ref fuel tanks

Since i was going to cut one up to fit around my watts linkage i will no longer be interested.
Please remove me from your list, that sucks but not your fault. Damn it, in that case for that price i will get an alloy tank done instead

Re: Mk3 Track/Race Car Build - Picture Heavy NOW!

New toys for the old girl.

Picked up a lifeline 2.25litre electrically operated extinguisher system.

Will now need to try and find a good place for it and the battery. Although I think it may either live in boot or just behind passenger seat.

Re: Coming soon. Brand new fuel tanks MK2/3

I am interested, i know this is going to sound mad, but to cut one up and resize to fit around a watts linkage on my Mk3. No worries or explosions on a brand new tank. Whilst it is open baffle it aswell. Seems very reasonable price.

Re: Waterless *coolant*

Run normal coolant. Only consider waterless to use for a specific need such as mentioned prior racing or extreme use.

Normal coolant does the job very well if your cooling system is correctly working.

Re: Coolant suggestions

Coolant suggestions Before doing anything flush the system and get as much crap out as possible. Easier said than done, this could take hours, but well worth it. Back flush everything if you can. The radiator is likely to need replacing on most cars though as they just slowly die from day one if not...

interesting choice, but each to their own. Personally if i was going to use a Capri as a daily i would just try to source the best shell i can, regardless of whether it is a 2.8 or not. You can always make up strengthening brackets and buy some of the plates if required, but on a raod car it is not ...

Re: Rollover jig

i just bought mine from roll-over jigs. But yes it is a spit roast style rather than a cage that goes around the car to allow you to roll it over! I have very small garage and it means i can have more space and easier angle of car to work on it. I have had mine with axle and front suspension on it, ...
