Also there will be a special laser forum prize :beer:
Intriguing!
The meet sounds good to me, I will be there at 9 as I think 9.30 will be a little late. If the weather is good it will be busy at the Nationals and we want to try to be at the top of the field if possible.

Re: Rear Shocks Upgrade

Hi Nick, Good work by the lacquer red boys, as always. Your car definitely looks as stunning on the underside as it does on the overside! :D It will be interesting to see how you get on with these Spax shocks, as I tried them a few years ago but had some issues with them. Comparing the photos of the...

Re: Looking for Mk3 2.8i bonnet front trim

Hi, My first port of call for stuff like this Martin at Caprigear. As you probably know, it's hard to find these unpainted trims in good condition, so If Martin can't help, did you know that these are being reproduced? https://www.capriclub.co.uk/Bonnet_Moulding--product--522.html :goodluck: Andrew.

Re: Waterless Wash & Wax Products

I bought some of the Britemax on Andy's earlier recommendation. From my experience so far, it seems to leave no streaks after use, unlike some other products I've tried. As a bonus it smells very nice too... :)

Re: Mk 3 Capri Owners in/near Bristol wanted

Very nice photos Gary, it was definitely worth taking the opportunity to have those professional pics done. Are they going to be used in an advertising campaign?
I've seen your car at the Nationals a few times, however, I must admit that I didn't realise that it was yours.

[ndrew, the edit button now disappears after 15 minutes so you can't erase posts that may cause confusion later. It means you can't go back and correct sppeling erorrs either..... :D A small point of clarification: there isn't a time limit on erasing posts as long as it's the last post of the threa...

Re: Forum Upgrade and Adding Images to Posts

I've noticed a few other changes here and there. Most of these upgrades appear to make the forum a little easier to use, but the edit post icon appears to have been removed. Is there a way to edit a post once it's been submitted? Andrew. Edit: It looks like the edit icon disappears after a set perio...

It is indeed, however in my case not without precedent......
What did you say this time? :xd:

The missing posts are probably a result of the recent forum upgrade that Beakster mentioned in another thread.

Re: Forum Upgrade and Adding Images to Posts

Hi Beakster,
Thank you for all the hard work you put in to keep the forum running.
This latest upgrade is a godsend for a lot of users, the ability to add photos directly to posts will save a lot of time and bother.

I understand that you're trying to keep your achievements low profile, but I watched the end of the marathon live on TV.
Fair play, you look as if you didn't even break into a sweat! :)

Re: Super unleaded or just unleaded

my question is I still use super unleaded and use the mills oils as it stops the ethanol from gumming up the Webber . So who else uses super unleaded or just leaded ? For what it's worth, here are my thoughts on the subject. Miller's VSPE Power Plus claims to increase the octane rating of fuel by t...

Re: New Car Show

Steve is definitely correct when he says that in a few years we've gone from having only two fairly dire car shows to a situation where we're spoilt for choice. I'd go as far as saying there are too many now, and we have to be selective about which ones we have time to watch.

The trouble with that sort of narrator is that you just know that they are reading from a script and they haven't a clue what it all means.
