Re: Sunroof Seal

Hi, I've heard that the aftermarket sunroof seals don't fit very well. It has been known for people to fit the seal from a Mk2 Golf instead. https://www.heritagepartscentre.com/uk/321877209a-sunroof-seal.html Better get some advice from Martin at Capri Gear or CCI before splashing your cash though. ...

Re: I'm back......

Hi Andy,
Sad to see such a fantastic Capri go, but I look forward to seeing the Mustang......and probably hearing it from a mile off too! :D
Have you given any thought to which colour you're going for?

I'm all for a good description of a car but not a war and peace type :lol: On the other hand some sellers tell you nothing :headscratch:
If there is any relevant information about the car, it's lost amongst all the flannel. :lol:

Hi Danny,
I hope you have a good one! :cheers:
Were you given any Capri shaped goodies? Hopefully not full-sized ones as it's probably best to leave some for everybody else..... :D

Re: Ford Capri Laser D605 CDU on ebay

The seller on Ebay we were thinking of is thedoctor102, his name is David Roberts. The name of the seller of Sam's car is Robert Smart. Despite the similarities of the flowery writing style of the two Ebay sellers, could it just be a coincidence? https://www.ebay.ie/itm/STUNNING-1979-FORD-CAPRI-1-6-...

Re: Ford Capri Laser D605 CDU on ebay

Also Oxforshire but then known as The Doctor! I had exactly the same thought when I read the advert. From memory, That seller sold cars from a place in Faringdon, just 5 miles from where Vale garage is located in Stanford in the Vale. Those Ebay listings were always full of complete guff about the ...

Re: Photos from Slavkov meeting (CZ)

So based on your clues I think it was available in red/black. I always know only silver with red stripes from advert posters. Until now. Thanks! ;) Hi Tom, This brochure confirms what I though. It states that the GT4 was available in Strato Silver, Diamond White or Signal Red 80. https://www.ebay.c...

Re: Look at this garage!

Google street view which says has an image dated September 2018 shows a colour coded Red Capri, a Red Sierra and, in the background a white Sierra with spoiler - XR4? Doesn't seem like they have a fast turnover of classics! You can view the older Streetview captures too. Guess what, the red Capri (...

Very nice cars and a lovely setting too. Looks like it was a great day out, and it's good to see that some car shows are getting up and running. I'm not 100% certain about the GT4 being available in red with black stripes, but I have a vague memory of red, silver or white being the paint options for...
