Re: Capri 2.8i metering head again

I didn't get on with shellac, I found it too thick but you do need to seal the halves and also be very careful with the rings around the central column as it is easy to dislodge them when fitting the halves together.

Re: Granada 2.8i calipers on a capri

Hello, I know is been 10 years since the last message, but I want to make the same upgrade. I bought the master cylinder, servo and calipers from a mk2 Granada 2.8i. Did you manage to install them? How? Thanks a lot! ✌️ Not much help to you but the original poster hasn't been on here in 8 years😕

Who has the gazebo? 🤔 I believe that Mr Nige took it for safe keeping. He doesn't have it apparently! Oh! Dave then? There weren't many of us there and I know Dave didn't even want to take the BBQ as he wanted to leave it in the trees until next time but did he take the Gazebo as well? Has Nige loo...
