Re: Removing reverse light switch

Hi mate,

These reversing light switches do come up quite often on eBay but genuine Ford switches command quite a high price these days, if not I think Tickover sell brand new reproduction switches.

Re: Dash repair

After reading the comments above I'm certainly tempted to have a go at this myself as the dash in my car is in an appalling state.

Martin, out of curiosity how much would you charge to put these together? Getting the time to do it can be a problem for me as I'm sure it is for a lot of people.

Door Cards - £150 Door handles - £50 (drivers is not mint) Carpet - £100 Front & Back Seats -£300 Hi mate,...

Re: Axle location kit help

All I'm saying is that I don't think there is much substance to the reputation the Capri has for handling, I do believe it's the driver that cannot handle the vehicle, for example, in a world population of 7.7 billion people how comes only 20 maybe 30 people are good enough to drive Formula 1 racin...

Re: Axle location kit help

With all due respect it's not the car that don't handle, it's the man/woman sitting behind the wheel that can't handle the car, it's like these old wifes tales about putting concrete in the boot, why would you add weight to a car you want to go quick in?

Re: Is this a sensible price ??!!

The thing is how many people have the willpower to say no when someone offer's £1000 for something you bought for a hundred quid, regardless whether it's a part for a Capri or bottle of wine? I personally have loads of spare part's for my Capri's that, at the time I bought them, were for future proj...

there i was thinking i was helping out a fellow needing to restore his car!
That IS annoying.
Maybe the above is true but perhaps the guy was going to use it but the project/restoration didn't happen for some reason which happens quite often i.e. change of circumstances etc

Re: Cragar wheels!

The thing is it's not that expensive to have wheel's rechromed in the states, in fact when I spoke to the guy from Cal-Chrome he laughed when I said the wheels are 13 inch rims, he called them golf cart rims! He gave a quote of around 130 dollar's per rim which is a lot less than I expected but of c...

Re: Make steering easier / adding power steering

Also, things like correct tyre pressures make a huge difference and, apparently, the O.E. 185/70 tyres are much lighter than the 205s which many fit? This is totally correct, I have just put a set of wheels on my car with 195 60 14 tyres, it previously had 205 60 13's on there, the steering definit...
