Re: 1979 Capri 2.0 "Ghia"

You've been busy :D . Always good to read about how someones car is improving. Nice work on the interior & glad you got the temperature gauge working. Remember rebuilding with a carb kit years ago, brought back memories of a kitchen smelling of petrol before I was blessed with a garage. I like the g...

Re: WTD Capri 2.0s Interior

whether the interior was Strobe or the earlier Carla check will depend on when it was made. Check behind the rear seat pads to see if the build sheet sticker is still there. :agree: I know from 1981 on they had the strobe seats ( I had an '81 X registered one with these as standard and it stayed un...

Re: Rotary Tool - Aldi

I know that some on here take satisfaction from polishing/tittivating their bits (ooh!) and that rotary tools are a part of this process. Aldi have them in currently, seems a very good kit for around £17 Couldn't have timed this better Paul. My son builds electric guitars & was looking to buy one o...

Ive had a CCI shelf in mine for 3 years now. The finish looks the same as the original but should be stronger as it is made of better materials.
Me too, I'd go for one of these. Quite a few have got them and as said they look the same, are strong & will last.

Re: Who Remembers?

This is an apt one for the forum, nice set of tools for the car. Seems such a strange idea now, why make chocolate tools? But nobody questioned it back then, we just enjoyed them. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/EZsmZdWXkAQcbdc?format=jpg&name=small Ooh I can taste them now, solid chocolate, our local ...
