Re: What is killing everyone?

We will probably never find out :(

Just saw this from the best politician we never had https://planetradio.co.uk/planet-rock/n ... liticians/

Great song/video and very accurate!! Lemmy still sadly missed (He was too honest to be in politics anyway :) )

Re: 3.0 Exhausts. Which ones?

I'm no expert but have fitted Janspeeds to a 3.0 and 2.8. Janspeeds come with flanges so easy to connect to the 3.0, and they can be cut off to sleeve the 2.8. The 2.8 manifolds don't have the flange https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/270715330786?fits=Car+Make%3AFord%7CModel%3ACapri&epid=1230650652&...

Re: 3.0 Exhausts. Which ones?

Custom made and delivered. Same as the 3.0 system although, you might need to cut the flange off your manifolds then sleeve and clamp the system onto them? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/385209737078?hash=item59b04a1f76:g:d78AAOSwuwVf63wM&amdata=enc%3AAQAHAAAAoN1Lbp7bDsmscZX9KCf81xm4exyWJ%2F5ipD1GMF...

Re: CCI Nationals

Same day as Simply Ford at Beaulieu It must be difficult to plan an event in show season to not clash with other shows. I wonder if there are many Capri owners that usually attend both shows, and this year will have to decide which one to go to? No contest for me! Andrew. Depends on how many orange...

Don't be surprised if you don't get a reply, the author of the post hasn't been on the forum since 2020! It seems many people join forums to get some info or buy/sell items and then disappear, also social media has helped to kill off forums (although not this one). Saying that I use Facebook as it ...

Re: wheel colour2.8i special

I know early 80s Fords were Strato Silver and that suits most cars in my opinion.

Moondust and Stardust seem popular now too (Apparently my XR3 has been done in Stardust and I'm happy with them)

Re: Capri spotted on tv

Yes, I was alerted to that too, definitely one of those 'wow' moments! I think the character, Stu, stated that his back in the day was 'Cosworth blue'. I think that colour was the 2.8 Laser :headscratch: :) Don't be silly Andy - that marque didn't exist. It was a colour option for the 3.0 Injection...
