:welcome: to the forum !

Lots of really friendly folk here with a wealth of Capri knowledge. No question too big or too small...or it that too small or too big :? :lol:

Anyhow mate great to have another new member on board and look forward to seeing some pics of your Capri at some stage...and of course talking with you some more :)

All the best


PS I was just looking at why you were saying you were "newish" to this forum when you had joined up in April 2014 ??? then I realised I was looking at my own profile...you will get used to this from me :doh:
