B112 on a foggy morning in Dartford !

Postby Fordoholic Nick » Fri Oct 05, 2018 1:34 pm

Hi,

Could not resist taking a couple of pics of B112 before she went off to Tickover for a week, as the foggy morning gave such a great atmostphere too against the backdrop of the wire fence. These pics really show off the recent suspension work that Tickover did recently as I have not really been able to look at the stance for a while as not been out of the garage !! So as said could not resist these pics in the fog with no one around 2 hours early at Tickover :lol:

The second pic is possibly one of my favs I taken of B112. I might get it framed and hang it in the lounge..ermm sorry I mean the garage :)

Awesome pictures Nick, definitely a fitting back drop :)
Out of interest what size rims are they? I'm really struggling to see what's too big for a capri while trying to source my new ones

Thanks Tom :)

The rims are 7x15 with 195 50 15 tyres. The 15's give a great choice of tyres.

I have single leafs at back 1.5" lowererd and front 145lb springs 2" lowered. Gives a lovely stance now.

All the best mate

That's a great video, Jason, it looks professionally edited.
How can you have a video of Nick's car without any mention of his favourite paint though? :D
