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.

Re: My first capri, A-REG 2.0 S restoration

Its probably worth spraying on a couple of coats of isolation primer when you do it just in case.
Just dont make the mistake a mate of mine did by then forgetting about it and rubbing right through the isolation primer whilst preparing for paint. :(

Re: Capri Ghia Alloys

Speak to martin at Caprigear, Tickover or CCI to see if they would want them at that price or could sell them for you if you dont get any takers here.

After looking around and asking recommendations a couple of years ago i ended up with a Stormforce cover. Its quite substantial, made of a tough multi layered fabric and fits the car well. It's never blown off the car even in very high winds as it is elasticated and has underbody straps. The only do...
