Re: Electrical Wire Sizes

Hi there, I will try and help you here. But before anyone goes off on one saying that's all crazy, this is all Approx and from School, which was a while ago to say the least. But I believe this is pretty accurate for this... If you’re actually drawing 5a at 12VDC, you want no more than a 3% (This is...

Re: Collected my 2.8i Special today

Hi Neil, Congratulations on your purchase. Fantastic looking motor. I felt compelled to have my say, as if we parked up next to each other, we'd be stuck as to which one is ours. Only difference I can see is you have the Janspeed's, I'm a bit green on this, as mine too had a SS exhaust system fitted...

Re: Too tall for a capri?

Hi,
I'm 6'2"and a bit, weighing in at 25 Stone, I fit nicely.
Once he gets his technique down for getting in n out, he'll fit like a glove. Worst case, get one without the factory Sun Roof.
2nd worst case, if he decides he can't fit, you'll just have to use it... :P
Best of luck,
John.

Pic's from a couple of shows today...

So I got up early to go to the local, 'Classic's on the Green' and I think the weather put a few people off. But got some pic's... Then thought I'd have better luck up at the Capri Club day, so off up there, after a couple of hours drive through the rain & Sun, we were rewarded with some interest in...

Hi Andy, Always seems to be a great standard at shows now-a-days as more & more are getting restored and looked after a bit more, even the daily runners...

Hi Simon, This is down near Southampton, Beaulieu motor museum. They have a cracking Museum full of Motoring history, Top Gear area, some film cars, they did have a 007 set of cars last year, but I didn't go into all the museum this year, so don't know if this is still there. Anyhow, here's a link f...

Hi Martin, Well, I couldn't wait. I was like a Kid in a Sweet Shop. I ran out on my Lunch break and got them fitted. What a difference these parts have made. The Choke / Auxiliary Air Valve lifts the rev's again on cold, or the Warm up Valve does, not too sure which one, but it's a drastic improveme...
