Re: A strange situation

I've noticed this in my Capri & also in SWMBO's Audi & my Touareg. I think its down to the current weather conditions as much as anything, just look at all the dust you get on the cars over the last couple of months, if I leave my windows open a little when parked at work, the inside gets a ...

Re: Mk3 GL Radio Query

The GL's of your one's age just had the standard Ford P21 M/L wave radio with one speaker in the centre of the dashboard. IIRC that was the deal in my 79 GL back in the day as paul says, later upgraded with graphic equaliser (who remembers them :D ) & kick ass Pioneer 150W monsters cut into the...

Re: wanted ford Capri front lower panel

I asked but no one was helpfully That's disgraceful. Three members replied to try and help you. So you found one yourself which is great, but then refuse to explain the outcome any further, except to throw it back in their faces by replying - 'don't need to haha find one and getting it delivered to...

Re: removing under sealant

When I did mine, it had factory underseal about a third of the way across the floor from the sill lip inwards. The central third, the transmission / prop shaft tunnel was actually preserved by years of oil leaking & once de-greased revealed the original clean painted floor, no need for heavy dut...

Re: Ford capri 1977 3.0s resto

Glad your trip went well, its amazing how tiring constantly scanning the gauges, listening for noises & even smelling for fumes or hot brakes etc :D Strangely on a run like that I have got 30mpg out of the lazy auto in my 3.0 Ghia, at a steady 70-75mph on the speedo clock but as the sat nav says...

Re: £30K 3.0S

Didn't realise Finn had a 1.3. I was so tempted when EllieCharlie had a base 1.3 a while back but nowhere to store / hide it, would have had one from each end of the range then. I hear what your saying about values mate, its the S's everyone wants even though the more discerning owner knows a Ghia i...
