Re: Nice drive out

Jumped in the Capri today and headed off from Ramsgate to Maidstone for a lecture. Nice blast up the motorway in the spring sunshine. Shame the lecture is next Tuesday and not today!! Hi, Beautiful day today to take out the car. Every possible opportunity should be taken, whether there is a lecture...

I discovered my lumbar supports behind the backrests when I was refurbishing my front seats.
I prefer to use them loose as Big Mike uses his, as I can adjust them easily while driving.

All the best,

Re: Spray Can Paint

if you`ve prepared it properly It will be absolutely fine. Hi, :agree: Hammerite claim on their website that the paint can be applied with minimal surface preparation before application. However, when I've tried to apply it in that way it barely lasts a year before repainting is necessary. All the ...

Re: Spray Can Paint

I never use hammerite it causes all kinds of problems. For a start it has a silicone content which means other paint will not overcoat it. Plus for whatever reason, when the paint peels off (and it usually does) it seems to always do so to reveal very rusty metal..... Hi, Thanks for the information...

Re: Capri 280 Brooklands for sale by auction 31st May

Do you really think it will go only up to 5000 GBP? If I am not mistaken these models go for sale for up to 10000 normally. How come it is valued so low? Hi, Call me a cynic, but perhaps the estimate is low to generate interest. Looks like a nice car, though. The reg looks familiar, I must know it ...

Hi David, If you have a non working sender unit it may be possible to refurbish it yourself. There's a thread on this forum somewhere. Someone on here also found a place in the USA that can refurbish them. Search for fuel sender and you will find the threads with all the details. They do come up for...
