Re: Exhaust dilema

That's a blooming good price right there, it's a shame that one part came damaged, the courier probably used it to play warehouse baseball

Re: Interior Light Bargain

The kit for the discs is only so no one buys them because they are no doubt out of stock and don't want to end the listing

Re: Discuss Saxty's Book - The Cars You Always Promised Yourself

I've got a brain picker, as with the sierra and Granada 2.0 8v i4, I was wondering why this engine was fitted with 16v pistons?? Is it a case of the rs2k engine was draughted up at the same time and it was cost cutting by ford to put the 16v pistons in the 8v variants so they aren't having 2 lots of...

Capri servo and master cylinder

A complete working servo and master cylinder removed from a 1.6 laser, I only removed it to upgrade to a 2.0 and landrover master, it could do with a lick of paint https://i.postimg.cc/PJcZZ71Q/20181206-164810.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/wM3L1zRB/20181206-164820.jpg £40 +p&p

Re: A garage won't give me my money back.

So do the parts exist? Realistically if they do you will need them, have some of them off the garage, reflecting what others have said the legal route may cost you more to get back a small amount

Dogs are a fantastic deterrent, I've always had German shepherds and I find people give them a wide berth, I for one wouldn't like to be on the bitey end of one.

Re: Custom exhaust advice for a pinto.

Why not fit a divertor valve into the exhaust so you can have it loud when you want it and quieter when not

Re: Easiest engine swap for a muppet with no experience

You didn't actually say what engine capri you are starting with, i was and still am a compulsive messer and maker of faster things, but if I was telling a 17 year old me what to do I would say focus on handling and braking, also make the mechanicals as mint as possible, get a year or so no claims (a...
