Well, to answer one of my own questions, the discs are the drain plugs for the wheel well, which, for reasons best known to Ford are metal. Quite why you’d put a metal plug in a metal hole in a bath of water and then expect your customer to remember to pull the plug out just once in 26 years … 

Alex The Welder came round this afternoon and patched up the sill that Mr MOT wasn’t happy with.

Beautifully welded sill on the Capri

Must say, it looks mighty fine to me 

Anyone wanting some welding doing in the Preston area should consider giving Alex a call on 07760288250, if only to see him turn up in what I understand is the lowest bay window camper in the country
