Re: First drive of 2019 !

Hi Nick, B112 looks as stunning as ever. I'm not surprised that you attracted a lot of attention, yours is one of the best kept Capris in the country. It sounds as though you had a great drive today, even if it has been a bit cold. Well, it has here. I can't wait for the winter lay up to end so I ca...

They had a bit of a marathon on CLTV. It's OK to watch if there is nothing else on, but I wouldn't go out of my way to watch it. Anybody with a particular interest in the Aussie car scene will love the show!

Re: New Car Programme on TV Soon

It's not a new series, but I've just stumbled upon another car programme on an obscure satellite channel. It's called "Classic Restos" and, surprisingly (!), it's about old cars. It's on CLTV, channel 161 on Freesat. I'm not sure if it's on Freeview, but I'm sure somebody will be able to t...

Caught a glimpse and from what I saw, he wanted to get the interior right....did he ditch the correct strobe interior for the S,and fit the red Ghia interior, or vice versa?

Re: New Car Programme on TV Soon

Yep saw the trailer today and saw the seats and dials. Wonder whether they will do a decent job of it, yet to see one on a car show yet that looks good. I managed to catch the trailer for the first time today. Maybe it was a slightly different version, as I saw the dials and seats, but also there a...

It looks as though we are in for a great New Year of car programmes on TV, as I've just seen a trailer for a series of Wheeler Dealers that starts on Discovery on Monday January 7th. By the way, there's a new series of the world's worst car programme - Yianni Supercar Customiser, starting on Dave in...

Thanks for the heads up, Andy. I quite enjoyed the first series, hopefully the second will be good too.

Thanks Andrew, will have to watch it :cheers: No problem. According to Wiki, the Capri episode is the 10th, so should be broadcast on 11th March by my calculation. Spoiler alert/ forewarning. The second episode is apparently an extremely emotional affair as, tragically, the person concerned passes ...

Re: Well I Never Knew That

I do use a small ball of blue tac when repairing clocks works really well and stops me from dropping the screw .... James May uses an excellent gripping screwdriver. He demonstrates it in one of the reassembler episodes. I really want one! https://uk.rs-online.com/web/p/screwdrivers/0547969/ Andrew.

I've just bought and fitted these bulbs - make a surprising difference and I was pretty impressed! https://i.postimg.cc/C1ZbwLmT/Capture.png Hi Danny, They look good, and that's a great price. Good old carparts4less! Did you use the standard bulbs or change to Osram Nightbreakers? Andrew.
