Re: Cold Start Problems 2.8i

In addition to Peter's great advice, this webpage is worth bookmarking:

The troubleshooting section at the bottom is particularly helpful.

Re: Stolen!

I increased my agreed value this week, not just because of this sort of thing but I felt it was a little low in the current market. I actually said to the chap on the phone "At least I have it in writing incase you decide not to pay out" :lol: He just said "As if we would" :) That sounds like a nic...

Re: capri 1.6GL bareshell rebuild

Hi,
I love what you're doing here. So often we see restoration threads where the end product looks a bit iffy, but that is definitely not the case here. All your work looks absolutely top notch. :D

Re: New Car Programme on TV Soon

I enjoyed last night's episode even though the featured car wasn't particularly interesting.
Didn't think much of the repaint though - they didn't even remove the graphics before painting over them... :doh:

Re: 3.7injection

This car was at Brooklands in 2014, it was in terrific condition then and it doesn't look as if it's changed much since.

Re: Spot the difference

I'm not a fan of constant cleaning..... First up and a new experience for me was a clay bar. This flatted the paint so I manually applied some G10 followed by Meguilars Ultimate Compound. For good measure I then gave it a light polish with Auto Glym resin polish then waxed it. It sounds like you're...

Re: Beware!!

Funny, as I searched on Ebay for Ford Capri scam advert and nothing came up.... :headscratch: :lol:
I think most of the listings Andy mentioned have been removed, but new adverts are put up again almost straight away.
Let's just hope that nobody gets taken in by the scammers.

Watching Bangers and Cash last night, they were at a car show (with 2 Capris there :D )
I saw this car on B&C, I didn't catch the other car though.

Re: Spot the difference

Looks great Peter!
Black cars do look great when polished and, in my opinion, the colour really emphasises the muscular shape of the Capri.
However, it's a difficult colour to keep clean and shows up the dust more than any other colour.

Just watched bangers for cash and the MG I did enjoy the show as they really show you what they do also impressed with th paint match .
The MG looked really good at the end of the resto.
It's almost as if the boys have stepped up a gear from the last series...

Re: Stolen!

I wonder if there's any news on the Capri being recovered yet? I can't help thinking that if the car has been off the road for 7 years, presumably parked in the garage where it was taken from for all of that time, the person who took it must have known it was there - that is, it wasn't an opportunis...

Just wondering if anyone here will be going? I'll likely pedal down for a mooch, my old girl will drag the place down based on the pics from last time.. Have a great day! Judging by the photos from the past meets, there's usually a few Capris at Walton Bridge as well as all sorts of other cars - bo...

Re: Beware!!

Currently 10 Capri ads, with more than one of the same car. I saw the duplicate ads but didn't count them as when I clicked on them they'd been removed. We've seen it before where one seller has hundreds of scam adverts running simultaneously. You'd think that would set alarm bells ringing at Ebay ...

I can't believe people are actually bidding on these obvious scam ads :o Unless they are fake bids to get the ball rolling :roll: When I checked just a minute ago, there were 2 obvious scam ads. It seems hard to understand that somebody could believe that they are genuine listings. As long as they ...
