Thanks, figured I'd have a go and see if there's any demand for this sort of thing, if not I have a spare if I damage the one going on my car lol.

Pretty slick. If I ever get rid of my BMW halo rings this is something I'd consider doing as well.

My dream Capri.

2JZ Supra powered x-pack MK3! Only way it could be better is if it was in black. Doesnt get much better than this imo.

Re: Restoring a sunroof panel.

Thanks for doing the work and also identifying the slider parts that i needed. Together with a new seal the sunroof is sitting much better though I still haven't dared trying to retract it for fear of damaging that new paint No problems. I wish that the finish had been a bit better but that's worki...

Re: Leaking brake fluid

I guess it cant hurt to drain it and see if theres any cracks, should i fill it with water and watch for leaks? While still fitted to the car? Errr no. Thats pretty dangerous. Brake fluid has a natural "search action" for finding gaps or cracks. If the reservoir is cracked I'd have though...

Re: Leaking brake fluid

Right ive tied it down with three cable ties pulled as tight as i could, i also cleaned off all the old fluid off the master cylinder, heres hoping this rather ugly but super cheap fix works!
I'll keep you updated.

Re: Leaking brake fluid

Are you sure you haven't got a hairline crack in the reservoir? Probably quite easy to do when wrangling the reservoir into the new seals. Also when you rebuilt the cylinder did you put the little pin that holds the first piston in place back? if not it could be travelling past it's stop position t...

Leaking brake fluid

So the 2.0 S still seems to be suffering from a leaky brake fluid reservoir. Over a long period of time fluid will leak out from between the rubber seals in the master cylinder and the plastic reservoir, eventually resulting in my brake fluid getting so low the light on the dash came on the other da...

Hmm, i did not know you could change gear like that, i'll try to remember that next time thanks, but hopefully there wont be a next time!

Re: Soooo

Who knows how to change a clutch cable? Mine broke on the exact same stretch of road where my throttle cable snapped a few months ago, the night ended on the back of a breakdown truck then too. Go figure. My life. Why did you go home in a breakdown truck? Why didn't you drive it home? You mean when...

Re: My first capri, A-REG 2.0 S restoration

Here's what I'm planning and hoping to achieve by painting the spoiler with some plastidip. It's a similar material as the turbo tail. http://www.mye28.com/viewtopic.php?t=109898 I'm not using the leatherique stuff like this guy did as the surface is already perfectly smooth, but I'm hoping to achie...

Re: My first capri, A-REG 2.0 S restoration

I've been making very slow progress. I have both of the tail fins fully stripped of all that nasty old paint. The rubber surface underneath is in perfect condition, though because I've used a DA sander to get all the paint off I'm afraid I've maybe stripped off a layer of protection so once I'm done...

Can you advise me on which length I'd need please? The one from Burton is 110cm long. Or can you supply me with the correct part instead?
