Re: Weston-super-Mare Car Show. Easter weekend 2019

Hope you had a good day at WSM Andrew :)

Looks like a good turnout of Capris, including my old 3.0 Ghia VKB155V.

It's like taking the Mona Lisa and painting a moustache and a cock on it. :( :turd:

It's a car that definately devides Capri fans.....Many like it, but just as many don't.

Re: PUFD - Pt.1 -Painted Leaf Springs

Very exciting re your peppers mate. Are you going to fit these to your Injection straight away and have the sevens for spare ?? Either way your Capri really is a proper stunner mate. I really like the peppers though. You don't tend to see them as much these days, but your Capri looks soooooo good w...

Looking good Nick!
Only you would have a mirror in the garage :lol:

Spent an hour in the garage this afternoon, although nothing as exciting....Just moving the chest freezer and racking around to make more room and a new space for the Pepperpots :)

That's exactly what I did with mine the week before the MOT :lol:
Although he did check them on the day, the car needed a wipe down anyway from the Haynes meet the day before, so no big deal :)

Re: Insurance declarations

1986/87 my girlfriend at the time her parents and brother used the Co op method as Paul G mentioned. I remember thinking this is a strange way of getting an insurance quote, but as you say it worked fairly. At the time I was with a local broker my parents used.

Filled in the online form but got nothing back from them for two weeks, by which time I had renewed with FJ anyway. The sales guy was really pushy and saying he could do a great deal and I ...

Re: Fuel Gauge reading empty

Just because the wiring is ok, doesn't mean the connectors are getting a good connection. 99% of gauge related issues seem, in the past, to have been due to faulty connections on the sender unit. Try cleaning them and crimping them a bit tighter? They live in a pretty harsh environment. Sounds like...
