    Hey pal, nice to hear your stories of back in the day collecting Capri spares as and when you could still get them. Do you still have any panels left over from your tours in Germany?

    Hello Jake,
    I bought a set of these several years ago, fitted them and all seemed good. The Capri was stored for 4 years and i have just started to work on it again.
    I opened the boot today and it just came down again like the old ones which i replaced, not very good new ones not being used at all.
    Have you had any issues with these replacements with this problem?

    Hello, I have just seen an old post from you about the seat tilt bezels. I was searching online and found this forum and your post so signed up for the forum. Do you still have the CAD and would you be prepared to sell the bezels? Mine are completely knackered and after just having the car restored these let it down somewhat.

    Hi thanks for accepting me to this forum. I am the owner of a 1988 Ford Capri Mk3 2.0 laser. Looking to sell if anyone is interested.

      Could you share some details?

      There is a members car sales area, so a good move for you would be to put up pictures and a description in there along with a price you have in mind..
      I am sure you will get plenty interest in the Capri..
      but note that the last year for Capri was 1986, so you can accurately date your Laser by looking at the chassis plate -GAECxx12345.. where xx is the Factory build date code..

    Could anyone offer any advice please . Removed engine for respray and now refitted having trouble starting . Changed fuel pump and have 7bar pressure to metering head , change warmup regular , checked timing and distributor all ok ,

    She will run if I keep my foot hard down on accelerator , just about run . I assume fuel issue and could it be metering head itself ?
