Re: Pepperpot Centre Caps wanted for 2.8i

There is a set of 4x on Ebay at present for £ 25 + postage. Check with Martin though as he should hopefully be able to match the price and its good to support our specialist traders especially in teh current climate. The colour for your pepperpot wheels and centre caps is standard Ford Strato Silver.

Re: Mk3 bumper

When you say change them out do you mean replace the existing Mk3 bumpers with better examples of the same parts or are you looking for ideas of alternatives that will change the look of your car such as Mk 2 bumpers, Tickford type grp bumpers, large US Federal bumpers ?

Re: Here's a fun side effect of this lockdown...

Ive never known what to make about the new KA. The old one was based on an early Fiesta floorpan, looked unique and filled the niche quite well as Ford's smallest car. Quite small, very popular though could suffer a bit from rust. Not sure what possessed Ford to then make it's successor based on a F...

Re: Looking for Sportex 1.6 pinto exhaust

You could be narrowing your options by asking for a 1.6 exhaust. A 2.0 exhaust will fit. The only reason a different exhaust was available for the 1.6 at the time was it was a slightly cheaper build than the exhaust specified for the 2.0. Even at the time a lot of exhaust centres would just stock a ...

Re: How do I check 2.8 is factory original

You are right- never realised it was the same car as Oilburner was referring to something on car and classic's site rather than here. Rumone has done everything right then.

Ive tried removing my last post but its not letting me so have reported it for deletion. Can you edit out the quote now also ?

Re: Laser 1600

Nice 240 estate, always had a soft spot for them. I had an early V70 for a while but I think the rear wheel drive Volvos are probably a better experience.

I fear we may never hear the full saga unfold as Mr Rossetti seems determined to be a 1 post wonder.

Re: When did the "S" become a Laser?

The presence of the side rubbing strips on the Laser seemed to pitch it as a better equipped version of the LS or the GL rather than a successor to the S. When deciding to restrict the 4 cylinder Capri range to the Laser, Ford included a fairly high level of equipment to reduce the number of optiona...

Re: 1979 Capri 2.0 "Ghia"

I was told by martin when I changed my rear axle the rubber saddle pads arent needed for the single leaf springs. The Ghia interior looks the part and does look very good with the combination of vinyl roof, Mk2 bumper and the absence of the Mk3 lower side mouldings. Are you going to continue the Mk2...
