I have seen peep...

Re: Capri mk3 with sbc which headers

Your into make it yourself territory now . Have you had the engine in the engine bay ? , also depends a bit on how much you can change stuff around to fit it in and still be legal .

Re: Doesn't everyone love a bargain !!!

Amazon sellers do baffle me with the postage costs, can only assume that they buy a pre paid lot cheaper or/and use cheaper couriers than royal mail.

Re: Must be spring

I always figured that parking next to the most expensive vehicle was prudent as they were the least likely to bash their door into my car......but that only works if the carpark is busy. When Im out in crapi I dont park it out of sight. Old classic Fords ( or certain parts thereof )are a good prize ...

I see you have the good sense to park such a stunning Capri well away from the other cars in the car park.

Re: Carcoon Covers

I have never used anything like a carcoon . If your charging a battery would you not have to give some consideration to the build up of explosive gas in your carcoon , ( Im thinkin hindenburg πŸ’₯πŸ”₯β˜ οΈπŸ˜† ) . It aint that hard to hoik the battery and they are easier to check over whilst on the bench.
