Re: Now I have heard it all....

Aww how sweet. Just goes to show how emotional a car can make you and the connections they can make in our lives. My 1st trip in a Capri is a strong memory for me. It wass 1978 and our next door neighbour bought an ex Demo, yellow 2.0GL Mk2 Capri and was proudly wiping it down on the Sarurday he go...

Re: Millers Oil VSPe Batch Date or Expiry Date ?

Just saying... If you upgrade your cylinder head to a Vulcan Stage 3 head, you will no longer be required to use any additive, therefore saving money in the .... very long future :lol:

Re: Unregistered 280

It probably couldn't be registered now anyway - it would have to pass BIVA and it would probably fail badly due to not being built to todays standards of safety. Good point!! An expensive paper weight then..... :lol: There is a fantastic thread on Retro Rides by a guy that built a V8 Sit up n beg F...

Re: Lowering pictures....

Looks great Nick - 145lb are just right for fast road. 190's are a little too stiff for my liking on a road car.

Re: Classic Ford - Santa Pod 2018

It's all good Nick - I'm having a self imposed sabatical. I can't decide whether I want an almost new RHD Mustang or an earlier Fox Body or SN95/Cobra in LHD flavour. I am so undecided I've given myself a good 1-2 years to make the decision whilst I finish the odds n sods off at SmokeEm Towers for ...

Re: Classic Ford - Santa Pod 2018

Thanks for the pictures Nick - nice to see a few of my Friends cars pictured also. Makes me jealous of stuff I've had but sold on :oops:

Still, glad you had a great day. B112 looking great as always.

Re: Wedding Day Pictures

Bearing in mind it was a good 3/4 years ago that I bought mine, it's possible that Burtons no longer do them but they were deffo DS2500 as just looked up. I fitted them with a new set of stock discs and bedded them in correctly and I couldn't believe how much better they felt. Nice strong bite with...

Re: Wedding Day Pictures

One small but great tip for those of you running a std laser on std brakes - Upgrade your Pads to Ferodo D2500 - Easily as good as a princess 4pot upgrade and a better pedal feel IMHO - all for £70odd - Available from Burtons. (Deffo better than EBC IMHO) Dave I might give these a go mate. Cant see...

Re: Lowering day now confirmed....

It will be fine nick, trust me. You could go 2" on the front but once it settles, you risk catching the valence on exiting petrol stations etc if uneven. The ride can also be a little crashy which never bothered me but it might bother you? You may also need to heat & fettle the over axle pi...

Re: Wedding Day Pictures

Swan Vestas will be fine mate 8-) The Hi-Spec kit is good too. A little expensive compared to upgrading using parts from the Ford bin but you get what you pay for. Willwoods are my personal favourite but cost ££££. One small but great tip for those of you running a std laser on std brakes - Upgrade ...

Re: Wedding Day Pictures

I should say that the above hunk of solid mahogany is NOT a chopping board lol. It was laser burnt to look like a JD bottle by a guy in a shed.

Cost a pretty penny but it is unique.
