Re: Capri V10

Hi there. Been following your build for a while now and I'm pleased it's still going. I was wondering if you use a vacuum to make your panels and then bake? I read a book on composites and decided I would never have the space or equipment to do a proper job. I have always fantasized about making my ...

Rust location. Panel needed but no idea of the name

Hi guys. I have a rust hole from the engine bay to the wheel well. I think the bumper mounts through this panel. I need to get a couple of repair panels but I don't know what they're called so it's hard to search for. I went on steel panels website but they don't have pictures of all their panels. A...

Re: Escort Spring Shackles

Thanks for your reply. The ones I saw were from motorsport tools and they are £23 but the capri ones from cci are £70 or something like that. Very pricy. Can martin get new ones cheaper?

Re: Important ! Ref fuel tanks

Are these tanks always going to be available now or was it a limited run? I do want/need one but I need lots of other bits as well so I need to know where it should be on my priority list.

Re: 2.8 Shell Project

Ok so this is my first proper update in a while. I am no longer doing RX8 independent rear suspension, nor am I doing a Jag V8 or V6, and not even a Volvo 5 pot. I’m going back to basics. I’m using excruciatingly expensive standard parts. Why? Well I have money for my project, but not much space or ...

Re: 2.8 Shell Project

I think you have made the right decision. The closer to original that you can keep it the more it will be worth. Absolutely. However it is a lot more expensive. I could probably have bought a minter by the time I'm done. I don't like saving money though and i already have this one. It will be nice ...

Re: 2.8 Shell Project

Hi, Yes i noticed today. They look awesome. CCI want £288 for their new fuel tanks. Is Martin any cheaper? I'm aware they are £240 to members too. I was wondering if the concours guys will be buying them and have a spare tank to sell. It's not that I'm doing my build on a budget but i do have a long...

Re: Rollover jig

Hi there, I know some people make them out of heavy duty engine stands which would be interesting. I had thought of making one from scaffolding as there are websites that sell all the elbow joints and such, also wheels! Plus you can take it apart when not needed. I wanted to make one of those CJ Aut...
