Re: CCI Nationals 2018

Weather was great yesterday, I popped out to Beaulieu for a drive, but didn't bother paying to go in as it was late in the day. Watched loads of Fords driving out some old but as usual most were modern. It was the 50 year celebration of the Granada and they had some nice ones leaving, so I had my f...

Mine too. Queens Square is a great meet, but I find myself rushing to get there then it seems to be over before you know it. But I enjoy the drive there and back so it makes for a good day :D

Re: CCI Nationals 2018

It was announced at the prize-giving that the new owner is well-known in Capri circles. Any guesses? That's it, and I hope you enjoyed looking through the photos. Andrew. Gutted I didn't go now Andrew :( I really want to see the Goblin Capri and meet Chris (Coyote500) the new owner. Thanks for post...

Hi all, Had a great day today. B112 passed mot and I finally fitted the new 7x15" wheels ! I am really really happy with them. They look very nice indeed !! After fitting all four I was really pleased with how they looked. They really have more presence about them indeed which the pics might s...

Re: Getting the Capri ready for the nice weather

Hi Neil, Looking stunning there! The hard work that you've put in has really worked wonders as the paintwork looks to have a wonderfully deep shine to it. Beautiful. I might attend my first show this weekend. It's not the CCI Nationals is it...... :lol: Andrew. Cheers Andrew. It was hard work the d...

Getting the Capri ready for the nice weather

At last it looks like we might have some good weather and I might attend my first show this weekend. After about 6 months of storage the Capri was looking a bit dusty https://farm1.staticflickr.com/972/41176679414_322f0390ed_b.jpg https://farm1.staticflickr.com/975/27025627087_329f3ba1b4_b.jpg https...

Re: Wheely excited....

Good choice Nick..... I was thinking of getting these wheels for mine in the future if my 13" tyres get close to wearing out. I'll be interested to hear how you feel it drives after changing them over. I was a little concerned that it would firm the ride up too much with the lower profile, howe...

Re: 2.8 single leaf rear springs wanted

Hi Mark, Not sure why you need to change your rear springs as I've always thought your car seems to sit nicely and has a nice smooth ride. Changed mine a few years back and have never been that happy with the cars back end since. Firstly I had to fit 1 1/2" lowering blocks to get the back down ...

Re: Brake bleeding

Interested to hear how this is going, as my brakes have become soggy all of a sudden :( The car hasn't been driven over the winter, took it out the other day for a little drive and noticed the brakes have become really spongy. It didn't seem to matter how much I pumped the pedal it stayed the same. ...

Re: Another Injection from the Dr.....

Crazy to think less than 3 years ago these cars would have been under 10K :shock: What a sobering thought Andy.... Your car would be worth £30k plus going by the examples we have seen here. 4 speed, carla check, low miles, low ownership, right colour, Janspeed exhaust and original paint :banghead: ...

Re: Another Injection from the Dr.....

I've just noticed the bit where it says that this car has an agreed insurance value of £26K. Food for thought for 2.8 owners. Andrew. I wouldn't pay too much attention to an insurance agreed value.... They seem to except what ever you tell them its worth. Wonder how well they'd honour it if it ever...

Re: Brake bleeding

Hi Sheff, thanks for the info regarding the eBay link. Will probably use that tomorrow. I cannot risk using an older item, thought mine was more than serviceable. Quite fancy the bigger Granada m/c as well. ATB. Peter Wise decision! I think the reason your's has failed, is the fresh fluid and all t...
