Screws

Strange request, but am looking for the little screws that screw the light rings onto the mounting plates, there's three per light, I'm short of 4, also has anyone got spare bolts for the prop floor mounting.

Re: SGS Engineering

Just to add to this post. Placed an order with SGS for their press, only to be told later in the day that they don't accept large payments over the phone from anyone in Scotland and that they were cancelling the order!!! This was after they accepted my payment and still haven't refunded me!!! I will...

Re: SGS Engineering

Cheers, thank you. Their presses look fine and come with a 10 year guarantee, which is far more than either Sealey or Clarke offer.

SGS Engineering

I apologise if this isn't the place to ask this, however has anyone had any experience with tools from SGS Engineering in derby? I'm looking to purchase one of their Hydraulic Presses and before I dive in I'd rather know if their stuff is any good, have looked at both Clarke and Sealey, but have rea...

Re: Capri prices

The reason people are asking silly money for cars , is simply greed!!! I am convinced that once upon a time when this mental Ford pricing nonsense began someone somewhere had a very nice car that someone badly wanted and paid them top money for it, then every Tom, Dick and Harry thinks their Capri, ...

Correct colours

Not aiming for concours, but want my Capri close to original. What colours would the rear drums and manifold have been from the factory on a 1986 2.0 Laser? I'm convinced the drums were a gun meal grey, but according to other sources they were a satin black? but definitely feel the manifold was a gu...

Re: speed limiters

This is the worst idea possible! Yes there are those shouting about saving lives, but limiting cars to set speed limits isn't the answer! banning bad drivers from the roads is!! People think driving is a God given right, but it isn't! SO many people don't deserve to be on the road!! This is step one...
