Re: How much ?

Being original paint I wouldn't touch it, but that hole on the hinge def needs sorting, With that paint bubbling around the hinge and sunroof, I wouldn't be surprised if there was a lot more going on below the surface that would need attention before long. That capri looks great overall, however, t...

Re: CAPRI MK3 DASH MINT CONDITION

That's definitely an auction to keep an eye on.

Let's have a bit of fun and make this into a game.....I predict the winning bid will be £750.

They look like they should just glue on . Hi Hamish, thanks. I would have thought there would be a bit to push down into the gap between the door and the frame but apparently not, they glue on as you suggest. I hope these quick pics help??? Had to nip out in my Dressing Gown!!! Freezing out there I...

Door Frame Seals

Hi Everybody, I hope that you're all keeping safe and well. I've found a set of genuine door frame seals in a box. They've never been fitted to the car since I've had it and it's not obvious, to me at least, where they're supposed to fit. Can anybody shed some light, or better still, upload a photo ...

Re: A Busy Black Swan breakfast meet. Jan 2022.

Great photos as always, John. Your Capri is looking as stunning as always, the usual bucket of water has worked wonders after your recent exploits! It looks like you've discovered a brilliant meet here, I can't believe the high standard of cars that make the effort to attend in the middle of winter....

Re: Car cover or don't cover

I'm happy to use a car cover when I have to leave my car outdoors. Always make sure that the car and cover are completely dry before using the cover. I have heard second-hand reports of white spots appearing on the paintwork, but I haven't experienced such myself. I think it's most likely to happen ...
