Re: Lucky Escape!

Too much power, too little talent. What a bell - end driving like that, there could have been kids playing in the garden where the wall collapsed. :wank:

I've no sympathy and hope he had to pay for both the car and the wall repairs out of his own pocket to teach him a lesson.

Re: Strut legs and parts

If that TCA is off the side damaged Dan, from what I could see in your photos I would think you would be better to change the whole arm. They aren't that expensive, about £20 should buy one on ebay.

Re: Capri delivered today

Congrats :applaud: :D on getting it MOT'd, you must be chuffed. It's looking a lot better now you've cleaned it up. RE the valve clearances, they aren't too difficult to do if you follow the haynes manual. You will need a 19mm (3/4 inch) spanner and a 15mm to set the clearances as well as some feele...

Re: Air Tools & Compressors?

My poor DeWalt is getting a hiding with all the wire brushing and the like, so I'm wondering if it's worth investing in a compressor and some air tools. Air sander to start with that will take 2" and 3" ROLOC discs, and then an HVLP spray gun. I've used SGS in the past and they do this little beast...

Re: A new classic

An often very overlooked car with big bang for bucks is the Vauxhall VXR8. 6.0 or 6.2 Corvette V8 with standard 425 BHP and easily tuned to 600+ or more if supercharged. Expensive to run like all the big V8's talked about previously but a good example can be bought for less than an average 2.8i Capr...

Re: Ronin

Which chase did you watch? There were two - an Audi chasing a Citroen XM through the backstreets of Nice and the Paris chase. On balance I think the Nice chase was the best IMHO.

:applaud: :applaud: That's a spot on description Andrew and it also applies to boot and ignition locks that are playing up. It also applies to most makes of cars, not just Fords - wish I had a quid for every VW and Vauxhall one I've done!

Re: Help! Take a look at the Capri timeline

As far as I can remember the Laser actually started life as a limited edition model and was adapted later in 1984 to be the mainstream 4 cylinder model. Regarding the MK2 S, the S became a mainstream model in early 1976 with no front spoiler, the gold seat centre material and the earlier right hand ...

Can’t believe that so Dagenham engine plant will be the only ford place in the U.K. .

I fear it won't be the last European Ford factory to be closed unfortunately. Ford USA have said that they are stopping building all cars and just concentrating on the pick up trucks which is their most profitable market area so I expect it will follow that other factories will get the chop and they...

Stayed up late last night to watch a re-run of Ronin on ITV3. One of my favorite films and IMHO the best car chase (s) of any film.

I'd stick with a completely standard exhaust. About £90 for a full system delivered including all brackets. Klarius, excellent sound/tone they give out.
