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: Ex Pressed panels MK3 wings

It would be nice an aftermarket wing that will fit without much fuss, I presume they are going to replicate the wings to include the lip at the front I always see people fingering for at shows? :twak: The expressed stuff is good quality worth spending the extra on, I got a pair of their sills for th...

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...

Re: Horrible Engine knocking
