Ford capri D838ADG

Hi Folks , Does anyone know where my old capri laser might be ? I sold it last year and looking to buy it back again . The last I heard it was sold at auction somewhere in Lancashire and it's not been mot'd since I last owned it so I am guessing someone has it stored somewhere while they work on it ...

Re: dent puller ?

Hi Stevie, yes the paint is not damaged as the glue goes solid so when you want to remove the glue you just have to use a sharp objects (supplied) and it just pings off . Those dent pullers are perfect for paint less repairs. Hope this helps ? Cheers Alex

Re: dent puller ?

I have used one of those dent pullers on my capri a few years back , I hit a deer so the drivers wing had a huge dent and the front of the wings was also dented. I went onto e bay and ordered one of the kits you mentioned and was so glad I did, the results were amazing I found the kit very easy to u...

Re: Ford capri for sale

Hi Andrew , it's been 4 days but no one has been to view it yet but getting people offering to buy it from £500 up to £2200 but I just think £3000 is a fair price . But as you know it's only worth what someone is willing to pay , will probably end up just keeping it and doing the work required. Alex

Re: Ford capri for sale

Yes there was an advisory , the guy just said that it would have to be done at some point , but never seemed to concerns. What about that hole in the inner wing is that a big job to ?? I always thought my capri was pretty clean just goes to show how quickly they can go downhill. :cry:

Yes brilliant tip there !! It's amazing how sometimes our old cars still manage to baffle us from time to time we tend to overcomplicate things sometimes. :cheers:

Re: Strut rebuild , roller top mounts or standard ?

My springs do the same when I turn the steering they also move and they also make a clunking noise . Good shout about the roller strut top bearings being to harsh 😉 I had never thought of that , so I will be getting mine from Burton.

Strut rebuild , roller top mounts or standard ?

Hi Folks, that's the capri parked up for the Winter so I can start to catch up with the work needing done to keep her in tip top condition. I have noticed that she is lying pretty low at the front and I have a steering wheel shake when turning right. I have decided it is time to give the struts a go...

Re: 3.0 Ghia - Problems

Just a thought but make sure your online fuel filter is sitting across the way not up and down the way . I had the same problem with my pinto it would take a few turns to start her up because the fuel was draining out of the filter back to the pum . I got a longer petrol hose so now the filter sits ...

Re: Aluminum & and J-B weld for fixing rust ?

Hi there, I had the same issue recently, I did not want a full back to metal re-spray etc, but for a year I would knock out a bit of rust and fill and cover over, a few months down the line and the rust is showing again. I had already decided I was going to have the rust cut out, welded in new meta...

Re: Aluminum & and J-B weld for fixing rust ?

Cutting out is always going to be the best bet but if grinding back treat the metal with a rust converter (Jenolite or something similar) even if the metal looks clean. Also bear in mind that most rust comes from behind a panel where there is little paint protection so make sure you seal and protec...
