Re: As you were!

So easily sorted and ready to hit the road again :D Hopefully not exceeding 60mph Peter :wave: :lol: Great when an issue is a simple fix Peter and thanks to the simplicity of the Pinto made even easier. On modern engines a 'fix" might be easy.....until you find you cant get to it without remov...

Re: Lowering day now confirmed....

It depends what sort of ride you want Nick! My GL has multi leaf and is very comfy ride and absorbs the bumps much better than the laser which has single leaf springs, but hammering into corners the single leaf springs give much better stance and grip into the corners :lol: There isn't much differe...

Re: Wedding Day Pictures

Bearing in mind it was a good 3/4 years ago that I bought mine, it's possible that Burtons no longer do them but they were deffo DS2500 as just looked up. I fitted them with a new set of stock discs and bedded them in correctly and I couldn't believe how much better they felt. Nice strong bite with...

Re: Wedding Day Pictures

Good stuff Nick. Through a foggy haze I can remember taking Mrs S to our wedding in a white MKII. Doubt she thought there would still be Capris parked on the drive more than 30years on - probably I didn't either if I'm honest! Thanks Peter :) Wow ! White MKII sounds spot on for a wedding car. Nice ...

Re: As you were!

Had to go to Maidstone Nick. Almost 50 miles each way and virtually dual carriageway door to door, gave me a chance to stretch the old girl's legs a bit. Possibly a bit more than you might have though :lol: Thought Deal was close. Haven't had a chance to get the 2.8 out of hibernation yet as there'...

Great photos. Your car looked just as stunning back then, even with the diddy 13" wheels! I expect your mate was so nervous about driving the Capri in case he accidentally drove through a puddle and got some grime on the paintwork..... :D . Cheers Andrew ! My mate was just nervous driving it f...

Re: Wedding Day Pictures

One small but great tip for those of you running a std laser on std brakes - Upgrade your Pads to Ferodo D2500 - Easily as good as a princess 4pot upgrade and a better pedal feel IMHO - all for £70odd - Available from Burtons. (Deffo better than EBC IMHO) Dave I might give these a go mate. Cant see...
