Parts needed

Hi Guys I'm after the following, please let me know if you have the parts or know where I can source them from.
-Rear Shockies (wanting the correct ones, some lower the rear by an inch apparently)
-Front Springs (not lowered) standard V6 height.
-1970 sunvisors
-v6 full wiring loom, (apparently a place in the UK can replicate if I send my fire wall plugs and fuse box?)
-black door trims and white moon crater head liner (Aldridge in the UK best?)
- Moulded plastic v6 oil pressure line
- Probably a few other things I've forgotten


Thanks guys

    Hi ______,
    Are you after new or used suspension components? I have old parts
     
    Sunvisors, can't help. found this but not moonstone.
    https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/BLACK-STITCH-FITS-FORD-CAPRI-MK1-MK2-MK3-68-87-2X-SUN-VISORS-LEATHER-COVERS-ONLY-/231158324656
     
    or; https://www.classic-ford.org/cfp/tm.aspx?m=87546
     
    V6 wiring loom. AutoSparks  https://www.autosparks.co.uk/finder/car/ford/capri+mk+1
     
    I used ProStitch in Sydney for both. You need to supply metal top strips (think I have some floating around) from the old front cards. I supplied the moonstone headlining (sourced from Aldridge). Brilliant work
     
    The metal pipe that goes along the side of the block is the only part I thought you would require. The plastic from there to the instrument cluster on mine (assume OEM) is just normal hard black plastic oil line. I would have to look to remember if it has formed bends? Either way can't help with that.
    Is this to be concours?

    Thanks a heap Mark!
    Prefer new suspension componants, but if they dont make new gear I would have to settle for good condition original second hand. However shockies do deteriorate.

    Is AutoSparks the company that can do Aussie V6 looms if I send my componants over.

    Yes I have heard of Prostitch and they are definitely an option. I have my original door cards so could send them the metal strips if need be.

    I have the metal tube and a section of the plastic tube which does have moulded bends, I guess I could always mould the bends myself if I had to in just normal plastic tube.

    Concours is a strong word, but I'm going for close to it due to my Capri been 1 of 1, I would class what I'm going for is as close to how it came off the show room floor as possible. To be honest I dont even know what would be required to make it concours.


    Cheers
    Matt

    I recently changed my oil line.  It had gone brittle and broke, luckily on the engine bay side and in the garage. 
     
    Enzed item number 14110-03  3/16 1000psi black nylon tube, cost about $1.50 per meter.  From memory it needed 3 mins in boiling water to soften it enough and I had to wear rubber gloves to stop my hand slipping. Buy a bit extra, it took me 3 goes to get the time right, if too hot it will buckle, too cold and will get stuck half way on.
     
    Check the date stamp on it, the first shop I went to tried to sell me tube that was 10 years old.
     
    Burtons do nice rated springs but their heights are different to ours.  Check this thread out for ride heights   https://www.classic-ford.org/cfp/tm.aspx?m=90554
     
    I got my rear shocks from Tickover in the UK.

    Thanks mate,
    Will definitely give that a try if I get stuck, might be best anyway to use new line rather than original 40 year old line.

    Thanks, will checkout the shock from Tickover.

    Matt, was getting some things from Matt Lewis Racing and saw this listing via ebay. I suppose its only worth it if you require the adapter end fittings?
    Oh what I would give to like in the UK sometimes

    Dirt cheap...I remember going to a Ford dealer( big mistake) for one for my RS2000 and they had one for $250 ... Back when RS was worth a grand or two in the late 90s I walked out shaking my head. Went to a local parts shop and got a generic one for $11 ...

    Be careful with those, the threads look too course.  When I did mine I took my cluster in and there were no fittings that had the correct thread and the angle of the flare was also different.  Have a go at doing it yourself, the most you have to risk is about $6.
