Re: Mk 3 Capri 5.0s

Well, the Capri was almost ready to go in for paint when I had an electrical issue that prevented it from starting.....After almost a month of searching I tracked down the issue to a bad earth on a dodgy kill switch one of the previous owners tried to wire up. Spend a good few hours cleaning up all ...

Re: Mk 3 Capri 5.0s

Yes, its almost finished. Just waiting on the panel beater to find time to paint the bonnet and tailgate and sort out a bit of paintwork around the rear quarter. I'll probably wait unit I get a serious buyer before painting it as my garage is kinda small and i can't risk accidental knocks on fresh p...

Re: Mk 3 Capri 5.0s

I was waiting until it reach a decent level of completion before making an offer (to swap). I didn't want to do any structural stuff, rust or major repairs. Fortunately this was all done... And all the custom rubbish was gone. I can enjoy it and do the final motor tweeks and have it painted properly...

MK3 bonnet

I'm looking for a spare bonnet for my Mk3 2.0s.
Not fused on colour as it will eventually be painted to match the car. Just needs to be solid, no major rust. Pay upto £500 if needing a bit of work or higher if mint condition.
Thanks in advance.

Re: Unusual door cards wanted strobe style in orange

I think the Fiesta were fitted with these seats as well. I'm struggling to find a set of red strobe door cards. Are you sure they aren't red that are faded?

Re: IS THIS SELLER HAVING A LAUGH??

There is a really nice 3.0 ghia for sale locally to me for 8500.
Is having "s" on your log book really worth that much?
Essentially the same car for a fraction of the price.

Re: Mk 3 Capri 5.0s

This car appeared in my watch list throughout lockdown..I had one voice in 1 ear saying "You want a V8 capri Go see it and make an offer" and the voice in the other ear saying "You don't drive the capri enough that you have got and you need this like you need another hole in the head." It was prett...

Re: WTD Capri 2.0s Interior

What's the half leather set you have like? If its the grey 2.8 version I would be interested. I sold a blue check set a few weeks ago as my car should have the grey leather but I'm having trouble finding any in even fair condition. Its in reasonable condition but I need to find a complete "S" inter...

Re: Mk 3 Capri 5.0s

Yes, the styling put me off the car when it was originally advertised last year on ebay. It had a shocking interior and mk2 bumpers. Stuart, the previous owner deserves credit for returning it closer to standard looking. I'll be going further in that direction. The engine is quite mild compared to w...

Re: Mk3 V8 build

Very nice. I've had a few V8 projects back in Australia. The last one I never got to finish before moving back to the Uk, so having just acquired another one here in the UK, I'm eager to get stuck in.

Re: WTD Capri 2.0s Interior

It's a 1983 model. The car has had extensive modifications in the past so I don't expect it to have a build sheet still in it. I' just want the car to look factoryish....the 1/2 leathers don't really suit the car but are better than the custom seats that were previously in it. I'm not a purist, just...

Mk 3 Capri 5.0s

After owning many Mk 1 Capris over the years, I've finally bought myself a Mk 3 Capri.....Tell a lie, I've owned an ongoing MK 3 project since 2005 but that's now locked away in storage in Australia. Picking up on the weekend, I've just swapped a Mk 1 for a (nearly completed) Mk 3 V8 project. It sta...

WTD Capri 2.0s Interior

Looking for a good condition Capri 2.0s Interior. Not 100% sure what was fitted to this model as I'm more familiar with Mk 1 Capris. I think they had "strobe" interiors. Either grey or red. The car that I want to fit them in is red. I have a 1/2 leather interior as trade or for sale once an "S" inte...
