  1. Cobra did the Supaslots, Wolfrace had squarer slots, I've got some of each. Used to have them on my old Capri's

    Ford Capri 1979

    Nice........ But, rear towing eye on a 1979 car? I've got one on mine as I replaced a lot of rotten metal & it was handy to keep at the time
  3. I built 2 Soft top Capri's years ago, I wanted them to still look like Capri's with the roofs up. Think I succeeded. Hope the links work, long time since I used photobucket

    Alloy products

    I asked about having a washer bottle & rad catch tank made in ally for my Capri 3.0S & was quoted £600, so I had a go myself & got a local welder to weld them for me,

    who does de cambered leafs

    I used my 12 ton hydraulic pipe bender to do mine, I did a little bit at a time & worked along the springs until I was happy with the result, It took me about an hour, I was told that if you heat them, they have to be retempered to get the spring rating back

    car cover stolen. need cctv

    I've got a Micromark system from Homebase above my garage door, It is hooked up to a portable 14" TV & VCR so if anyone comes within 6ft of the door, it records for 30 seconds, this can be altered but I find it enough, It is black & white so can also be seen at night, The camera always shows a picture even when not recording, The problem you may have will be if the car is on the road, there will be a lot of movement near it causing lots of video tape to scan, Micromark have a website, Hope this helps, Pete

    How long have you had your OSF....

    I've owned my 3.0S Capri TUF 30S for 21 years & have put 45k on it, It used to be my everyday car but it kept picking up parking dings so it now gets used at weekends

    Mk3 x-pack questions and pics wanted!!

    Hi Chris, Hope to see you there, I didn't sell the X-pack, It originally belonged to my best mate who sadly died, His mum told me I could have it after I asked about buying it, The car was falling apart so I fully restored it, even had to fit a new roof, His brothers saw it & decided it was worth money so they wanted its value so I stripped off all the new parts & refitted all the old worn out stuff & told them to come & pick it up, I've been told its been sold for £400 which was less than I offered for it. Someone did ask about it on Capripower forum, I answered but they never replied & haven't been on there since. Pete

    Mk3 x-pack questions and pics wanted!!

    I have some pictures of my old X-pack in midnight blue, As i haven't posted enough on here I can't put them on, But if you PM me with an E-mail address I will send them to you, As previously mentioned, Fibresports made the panels for Ford & the X-pack that I used to have was used in their adverts. Regards, Pete
