Re: 1977 Mk2 3.0 S

I used to have a Pilgrim Sumo Cobra replica with a Cologne 2.3 for a while. Frankly it wasnt the best handling Cobra replica on the planet nor was it especially quick but that may have been more down to the original builder rather than the kit. I do remember it used to eat propshaft bearings having ...

Re: Wanted - Mk3 Capri X pack kit or similar, new or used

Have you looked at the X pack kits CCI do. There is a choice as their Mk2 X pack kit also fits a Mk3.

Re: bonnet

a Mk1 Facelift bonnet will fit a Mk1 pre facelift. Mk2 bonnet is wildly different from a Mk1, it might as well be off a different car altogether.

What are your thoughts here, did you want to achieve the look of the longer bulge of a Mk1 Facelift bonnet on a Mk2 bonnet ?

Re: Windscreen Seal

Could it be because the later, larger screens were bonded rather than fitted in a seal ?

Re: Seat height for the larger man

I think the Recaro seats bases are less tall than the bases of the standard Capri seats so are fitted with taller runners/ subframes to bring them up to a similar height. As others have said you could try swapping over to using standard seat runners which should reduce the height. Talk to Martin at ...

Re: For Sale - Mk1 Ford Capri 1600 XL 1973

The Anglia axle is much narrower which would mean the rear wheels would be several inches further inboard than the front which could make for rather unusual handling. Is there any reason you haven't reverted the car to a standard Capri axle as they are not difficult to get hold of.
