  1. Hi Quico , If you still need one , i have two of them.
  2. Hi Col , if you want to use the same arms/anti-roll bar like this , than weld the arms again were the pipe [little piece] is weld against the square arms , mine came loose becourse at the fabrication they grind to much off the weld.
  3. Yes when it`s done , then leave it alone , but when you must dive under the dash a couple times to set it up , than is a cable a nice thing to have , with our MOT in The Netherland it`s failure , when you can change the brake balance like this.
  4. With mine estate i did put in a cable to ajust it , thats makes it easer to set it up.
  5. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ford-Capri-X-Pack-Alloy-wheels-RS4-15x8-Wheels-x-4-NEW/142534752289?hash=item212fbbb821:g:d4gAAOSwo4pYiykb
  6. So now i did extend the turrets becourse i want the car as low as possible for road use without the risk that the coli-over shocks are going to break down and also to prevent a bad handeling. In the past i already did exchange the longer coil-over shocks for the shorter coil-overs.

  8. Hi Murray , you were right it wasn`t youtube it was another site .. http://lemansgreenrs2000.blogspot.com/ https://www.google.com/url?sa=i&source=images&cd=&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwi_2eq346rjAhXLKFAKHQoVBhoQjhx6BAgBEAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Flemansgreenrs2000.blogspot.com%2F&psig=AOvVaw3P-qsagHWYQH9XiOdWAS4D&ust=1562862124362422
  9. If you can find 215 50 13 Yokohama , these are wide enough for a 7,5j , or another brand 225 50 13
  10. Thanks guys , yes dt36 that comes becourse i did set the underside wide and also the upperside also with the co-centric top mountings. I must see with how it turns out , when its done , i have set it like this so the tyre`s run free. About the colour Col , i am still thinking about lemans green with some black stripes on the side [low] And the a large part on the bonnet and rear a wide board line RS2000 mk1 style. But it`s always hard to make the right colour choise.
  11. And the tyre`s are also on the wheels , and i must say when i look at the front tyre`s that are very wide.
  12. I have somewhere in a old magazine a picture of a mk2 rs2000 and this got the rear eyes bent backwurds so it stands lower and the leafsprings can still do the same job.
  13. No buy a complete new block they are not expensive https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Escort-MK1-MK2-Capri-2-Lowering-Block-Kit-Rally-Design-RD529/321672931137?hash=item4ae5336741:g:YTMAAOSw8axaAa4w ,, and you can also do this what i have done , bolt it all together.
  14. Welcome Daniel , you have a nice car , but you have the upper rear leaf spring saddle pads sitting wrong. And you can put on the higher block thats easy enough. And when you look at the brackets , they are to long for these blocks , so i think that the higher blocks were on before.
