Re: Indicators PLEASE HELP!

Hi, You could fit any number of aftermarket indicators, there's lots of possible solutions depending on your taste.

He then starts a new eBay account as scam 1 as eBay let you start a account with out saying you need to say you have the funds...

They do look in great condition. Still, if your plan works they'll be given a new lease of life. Plus, I suspect that they'll also feature in a yet to be released (or filmed) online video.... :)

Changed the spark plugs and coolant yesterday, that was fun at times and some skinned hands etc

Re: Ford's 50th Birthday celebration of the Capri

Hopefully both days are a success especially for more local Capri owners :) :agree: I haven't got a clue how much goes into organising a show of this scale, but I imagine that it's quite time intensive.

Fair enough.

Hi Andy,
I have the Sportex manifolds. If I bought a Janspeed exhaust, I would have to buy their manifold as well.

Time for an update. It's been seven months and over 2000 miles since I protected the wheels with Poorboys alloy wheel sealant. Obviously, the outer faces have been cleaned regularly, but has the Poorboys fared well on the inside of the wheel? Definitely a much tougher test. Three coats were applied ...
