Walton Bridge Breakfast Club, Sunday 3rd Dec, Last one of 2017....

Hi All, Well it was a wet cold start to the day on Sunday, but as this was the last meet for this Year, as in previous Years I had already decided I was going to get along to this meet again, as it always can surprise!!! So off I went in the Cappa. (Freshly washed the night before!!!) I'm very happy...

Classic car restoration??? Anyone???

Hi All, Just seen this.... Bloody worrying and the Poor buggers who have lost a car in the process!!! Make sure you know the History of who you leave your car with I recon and carry out regular inspections... Thankfully I've not heard of this in the Capri circles. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-englan...

Re: Door speakers

Hey Paul,

I see your only down the road from me. I can drop off these Mac ones for you to play with if you want fella. Early Christmas present for you.... They will fit if you use some extension rings and grills... Cheers,

Re: 280 for very reluctant sale

Hey Mark, Shocked does not sum this up enough!!! Wow, in a way I hope you do keep it, as it's always been great catching up with you round and about and you always have a smile on your face as you get out of the Cappa too... Best of luck with the ale though, Ops, I mean sale. If you still have her i...

Re: Door speakers

Hi there, Don't touch those Mac Audio things if you want to use the original door fittings and covers!!! You might as well set fire to the £5 notes in your wallet and throw them away before you get any warmth off them!!!! They are ok if your going to use an extender with a different cover, but as ha...

Re: Full Quad Light Conversion

Hi there, Yep, as Nick has posted, either of these headlight units work. The more expensive Hella units do not list the Capri as a fit, but they do. 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...

Looking forward to this one again, so far this one has always been one of the best Classic Ford shows and a stunning setting too. Any idea what time we should meet up at South Mimms??? Any one else want to meet up for the drive over??? Cheers for now, all the best,

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...

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!!!!...
