Re: Brake Drums

Hi Nick,
Nice one! The black painted drums are a definite improvement over the old patinated look. :D

Re: Classic or Relic ?

Hi Rob, It's good to hear that the "relic" is still going strong! :D It's amazing to think that there is a whole younger generation who wouldn't have even seen a Capri before. I imagine that your stunning car will have made a lasting impression on the young lad. The dad too, by the sound o...

Re: Laser + GL

Hi Danny,
Great work there!
It was definitely the correct decision to use clear Waxoyl. The finish it gives is much more pleasing than the black stuff.

Unexpected Mention of a Ford Capri on Radio 2

Hello, I was listening to a repeat of Trevor Nelson's Saturday night Radio 2 show this morning (I'm not a fan of the music, but I just happened to be tuned in). Imagine my surprise when he read out a text/e-mail from a listener who mentioned something or other about owning a silver 3.0 S Capri. Is t...

Re: Berkeley Castle Show 2018

As normal some great shots there Andrew love the MK1 escort camper van also the BL cars as you don’t seem many of them also a nice mix of old but normal road cars back in the days . Thanks Jason, I love to see those old but normal cars. Yes, they were mundane and boring back in the 70s and 80s, but...

Re: Berkeley Castle Show 2018

Some fantastic pictures there Andrew, must have taken an age to upload! Have to agree, love that 3.0s. Not 1 but 3 Escort Mexico's, very nice. Both mk2 Escort Sport owners work with me (Kev & Gary, both really nice guys). I agree with you both that the Montego is rare but for my tastes I hope t...

Re: Berkeley Castle Show 2018

Some nice rare classic cars there Andrew, and I agree with you on the Montego. Nice to see the old BL cars, Celicas and the VX490 still around :) As always your car looks great :D Thanks Andy, I like to see the survivors from the 70s, 80s and 90s still going strong. Sadly, there weren't any RS or X...

Berkeley Castle Show 2018

A few weeks ago I went to a great show held in the grounds of Berkeley Castle in Gloucestershire. There was a decent turn out of old Fords, and here are my highlights. Where better to start than with the Capri contingent? https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1729/27589183817_686d68323f_k.jpg Ford Capri 3....

Re: No matter how carefull and protective of ur car !

Hi Mel,
Sorry to hear about the damage to your car. Yes, the woman has admitted blame and paid up, but it would have been better if she'd been more careful in the first place.

Re: New WD40 aerosols

In case anybody didn't know, the new style combined cap/straw is removable from the aerosol. You only need to buy one, when it runs out you can transfer the cap to a new ,regular aerosol WD40. Although I went with Paul's excellent advice and got the 5L with spray bottle. That will be enough to last ...
