Re: Goblin Works Coyote Capri

I'm afraid I still don't like it. The fact that they took a mint 2.8i and did that to it - yuk. It's like taking the Mona Lisa and painting a moustache and a cock on it. :( :turd: Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but personally, I have to agree with every bit of your critique Paul :xd: :xd: :xd:

Re: Leaking petrol when full tank

The breather pipe on mine is on the top of the passenger side, you can feel it whilst it fitted to the car, but iy has to come off to be fixed.

All fuel removed & more importantly it has to be completely dry inside & vented free of fumes before being brazed / welded to be repaired properly

Re: Leaking petrol when full tank

Not sure about a 2.8 tank but when we refurbed my 3.0 one, after prepping & painting it, it was corroded / pitted around the breather pipe on the top surface of the tank which when filled leaked.

Had to have the tank removed & had it repaired properly

Re: 3.0S Interior trim/wiring

Excellent info there but isn't yours a 3.0 ?

That brochure is for the later model range when the 2.8's replaced the 3.0 & the range was trimmed from the previous L, GL, S & Ghia etc or did I misunderstand what you were after ?

I do indeed have your book Steve, the posh version at that too ;) …… though sadly I have had precious little time to get very far into it, it will however not be an ornament, I will get to it properly one of these days ;)

Re: RS2800 Prototype

Have to agree, one of the reasons I sort out a mk3 Ghia over a "S" model was the look & feel of the interior, so pleased when I found my 81 Cobalt Blue with blue Verona interior ;)
