Both units are held in exactly the same way as the original units, by the ring, they have the positioning lugs to get them true, the only slightly diff...

Re: Starting issue

Hi,

I've had the exact same problem with my Laser back many Years ago and my current Injection, both were the HT Lead to the starter, corroded up inside the Plastic Sheathing... I would swap this out or strip it back to see how badly corroded the wire is??? Best of luck,

Re: Full Quad Light Conversion

Hi All, Yep, I am very happy with this little conversion to be honest. I also like the Relay block which holds the relays and the required fuse, (Once I've done all the wiring underneath.....) these blocks do lock together on a slide down the side, but as we were not screwing them in for a Permanent...

Re: Headlight relay and wiring.

Hi there, I would say that if your replacing the whole of the Loom, then yes, this Fuse / Relay box is ideal and you should be able to do away with the existing Relay quite easily... You would need a Switch Over Relay which looking at this Box will fit, I've just done a conversion, but I was using a...

Re: I have new bits ......

Hi There, I think this would look really great with the Black Grill & Bonnet Lip... I also feel it would set off the Clear Indicators better too??? (Which do already look Great by the way...) I recon this would really suit the colour of the Car.... Just my opinion though... It's Not my Cappa!!!!...

Re: Capris, Escorts, Grannies, skids, and angry cyclists.

I used to go down Boxhill on the Motorbike, all the Sundays I could back in the 90's. A great place to go.... Then when I visited a few times in the Cappa, I will say, each time I've seen what was very nearly a Wipe Out happen!!! Some crazy people just going up & down, backwards and forwards bur...

Hi All, I don't know what is wrong with Boot Polish!!! Must be Cherry Blossom though, otherwise it don't work too well. You have to work it well in and Buff quite a bit too!!!
