  2. last on the road 2007 ish. spent about 7 hours on it today.
  3. brought this off trademe, picked it up on friday. mileage not really known speedo has been replaced at some stage. 1987, blake plate, on hold. painted the frame on saturday with a rattle can.
  4. If you can find a donor wagon, floor pan is pretty much the same as a ute, but less rust in the back - usually. good for rust cuts etc.
  5. Anyone know how to repair/replace the outer bit on a speaker? the bit that attaches the cone to the chassis. got some AR10’s that need some love. and a matching set of AR8’s. sorry if not relevant. will bring a laptop and explain mame arcade setups. built a few back in the day.
  6. Got an old sansui amp that only works on one channel. Heavy chrome and veneer thing. 2 channels on a big board. would be awesome to hear it go. will be in touch...
  7. Is on the cards at this stage. depends on funds and how the progress goes.
  8. There might be a thread to talk about this somewhere. have no idea. https://oldschool.co.nz/index.php?/topic/47314-governorsams-1971-1600-gt-capri-of-patina/
  9. Not bad for a 17yr old kid. told him to carry on and do the whole car. got a couple of spare bikes to sell to fund it. stoked.
  10. Things are happening ... capri is getting some love. look at what’s above it on the hoist. met someone who is building a mad Capri, going to help me get it back on the road. In good hands for now.
  11. Have had a few motobatt batteries die on me. have gone back to normal lead acid and no more problems. bonneville and goldwing ate motobatts. have a hookup for katana brand battery’s through work. (Century batterys) han no problems with them. heard a few bike shops stopped stocking yellow motobatts due to the number of claims.
  12. Cup of warm water with baking sofa works wonders. undo the terminal and put it in the cup. gets everything off. old auto sparkle trick.
  13. Saw it advertised, was tempted. Had a 1300 sport when I was a young lad. Also my dream car. look saveable to me...
