Being a nice looking RWD fastback coupe is more important than those things imo!

I like those. They look like a lot of fun, and they're nice looking too

I don't think it directly answers your question, but might be useful nonetheless!

Re: Hi can anyone help with information on a V8 Capri conversion

Thanks for the info and the pics mctool. Interesting idea with the rad. Which rad are you using? I'd love to see pics of it in situ if it's done already! Hi Mate, Don't bother putting a boring, under powered Rover in it - lot of grief for not much more power than a V6, speaking from experience try a...

Re: Indicators gone fookin nuts

I've just checked the part number on a Capri one here and it is different to the ones quoted. I don't think it will work but I may be wrong. I do know that early MK2 and MK3 are wired differently, they will plug in but don't work. Hmm, if i ever take the dash apart enough to test it i'll report bac...

Re: Indicators gone fookin nuts

I've seen on ebay that there's people selling new aftermarket ones. I bought one as a backup but haven't tried it yet. I looks close-ish, but maybe a little *cheap* looking :( Check the part number on your switch matches with the one you buy as there were 2 types. These both look the same and the pl...

Re: 1987 Laser Wheel Stud Replacements

Oh you've already had it done? Just thought I'd point it out in case you weren't aware and were planning to DIY it. I had a go at doing mine, but it's a very close fit on the back with it all in situ.

Re: Blood Drive

Really I'd have to say No! There's a nice Camaro as the star but not much else. The girl who drives it is worth looking at but the whole thing together is a pretty much a lot of nonsense. About what you would expect from the maker's past history :xd: Heh, thanks for the honest opinion! Think I migh...

Re: Laser seats to recaro

Pretty sure I used the same bolts, yes. Yep, you're right, there isn't a lot to check actually! They could be from a different car or something that someone had fitted capri recaros to in the past, causing them to be mistaken for capri fitting ones?

Re: Laser seats to recaro

Have you got the frames that fit between the seat base and the runners? I have them. You need the frames to bolt the runners to. I do yes, I bought them from you yonks ago! :lol: I thought that they just bolted to the bottom of the seats and onto the standard laser runners, but the holes don't seem...

Re: 1987 Laser Wheel Stud Replacements

I think you need to take the halfshafts out at the back part way to get the new studs in if they're longer btw. Unless anyone has an easier way? I've done my fronts, but the back will get done when I get around to bookign it in for mot + rear wheel bearing replacement.

None are standard though, and iirc they all have downsides to them (as well as upsides) - harsher ride, stiffer steering, raised ride height etc

Re: Blood Drive

Is the show any good? I've stuck it on record because of the possibilities of nice cars to ogle. I saw a few minutes from the middle of an episode while flicking channels and it seemed a bit too cheesy for my tastes.

Re: Tickover delivery

Had the same with Demon Tweeks recently. Postage was £8 or something for a hose (in a jiffy bag) as the "economy" option. I was sure it was a mistake, so I contacted customer services but they weren't having it :banghead: :swear: Won't be using them again unless I can avoid it.
