Hiya, does anyone know if the headlight relay 4 fuse version, from a cortina mk3 with twin headlamps ie as per mk1 facelift capris, would work with mk1 facelift capri? I believe the headlamps are identical ....

I would say so , if it ain't perfect fit it would be adaptable. You could always get 2 new 20amp fused relays and fit them up ( one for low beam and other for high ) . All the wiring should be there , maybe need to change a terminal or two. Relays are like tires .....heaps of people make them and you can choose between a few options.
you gotta make the most :cheers: :cigar: :burnout: out of your 20's, 30's, and 40's coz when you hit 50 the "engine check" light comes on. :?
