Re: mk 1 bonnett

Mk1 bonnet on a Mk3 - not without lots of modification as they are different panels with different dimensions. I think the Mk1 bonnet would be longer. Are you asking because you know of a Mk 1 bonnet going cheap and you need a Mk 3 bonnet or are you trying to achieve a different style look on a Mk3 ...

Re: Poly handbrake bush

It may depend on where you got the bush from, whether it really is made for the job or just something that someone has advertised as suitable because it looks similar.

I changed mine a couple of years ago and it fitted with no real effort at all

Re: Future Classics

I suspect the whole modified / restomod classic scene will rapidly start to change from the current Zetec and V8 transplants over to DIY electric installations. No doubt there are already people out there experimenting with using different battery types and a few extra windings on standard motors to...

Re: Make steering easier / adding power steering

A handful of late 2 litre Laser Capris were apparently made with power steering and a few have retro fitted. Caprigrear Martin commented on this a while ago but I cant find the link immediately. Its worth searching on here and the other Capri forum. Some have gone about it by changing to the V6 cros...

Re: Fuse box queries

For the sake of the cost of new fuses (pennies) I replaced them all a few years ago. Several were the wrong rating and most were very fragile, which caused issues. A very good idea. If you can also spray a bit of switch cleaner on the fuse box. Corrosion can set in between the brass bits that hold ...

Re: Instrument illumination

Personally I just preferred the light from the green tinted standard bulbs when I tried them back to back. If I hadn't have bought them Id probably have been satisfied with the LEDs though, nothing wrong with them really.
