Re: Fitting of Electric Aerial - How?

I believe the 2,8s had an additional `plate` at the rear of the wheelarch to stop spray going up back of inner wing, lesser models didn`t have these; basically on the N.S., the right hand (as you look at it) of the rear arch is actually a bolted on plate, remove that & you have access to aerial...

Fitting of Electric Aerial - How?

I managed to get a NOS Genuine Ford early 80s Electric Aerial for my 2.8i, question is, how do you gain access to the inside wing to fit it? Can someone please run through how it is fitted please? Its original one broke a few years ago and wasn't replaced, just removed by the previous owner and the ...

Re: New Janspeed exhausts

Put a full front to back Janspeed plus manifolds on my last Capri (MK3 3.0 Ghia) and it sounded superb! I have a Capri Club system on my current 2.8i, and whilst it sounds great, I do prefer the look of the "pea shooters" on the Janspeeds as they are reasonably closer to the original look....

Re: 2.8i or 2.8i special and fuel

As the add said at the time: "Wheels, Paint, Leather, Limited Slip- that's what makes the Capri Injection Special" :D The 5 speed box was brought in for 83 - I have a 5 speed Injection non special. If its a C plate it will be a Special as the range was rationalised in 84 (B plate onwards) ...

Roasting today so the Injector was filling the air with nice V6 tones. Passed a Signal Amber MK2 Mexico coming the other way, we exchanged a grin and thumbs up out the window :)

Re: my motor

Your car is absolutely gorgeous mate, Laquer Red is always a cracking colour. Will always have a soft spot for Lasers as my first Capri was a Black Laser and youll never forget your first Capri :)
