I'm in love...

She is coming along nicely, a new respray, many new parts, a new MOT with no advisories, what else do I need to do? ;)

I'm in love.

High level third brake light

Has anyone fitted a high level brake light to their Capri, something retro in keeping with the Capri's originality? I guess with most cars out on the roads today having a high level brake light as standard, drivers are being spoilt allowing them to reply on this third light as it's more visible. The...

Re: We never grow up

Is that a Cosworth whale tail on the Capri in the old photo? A sign of the times...... :D Andrew. Hi yes it was Andrew, I fitted it myself, drilling into the tailgate and making sure I got the measurements right was very nerve-racking to say the least. I actually fitted side skirts, front spoiler a...

Re: Respray

Thanks fellas.

I'm not sure if I will put laser decals on the sides yet, I have put the Capri 1.6 laser decal on the tailgate so far.

laser decal

Hi there, Does anyone know what the correct colour laser decal is meant to be on a red 1.6 laser? I bought the red laser lettering with the silver outline decal, but the red could not be seen against my red Capri, so I found one last remaining silver lettering decal with a burgundy outline, can thes...

Re: Respray

Thank you for the comments fellas, I just wish my father was here to see the Capri all finished, he would have been amazed in how much it looks like my old Capri back when I was 18. My father and I had some great times working on my old Capri's back in the day, I had an 1982 LS and a 1979 Ghia, my f...

Re: Respray

Thanks fellas. Regarding the wheels, I've bought 2x different sets of wheels these past two months, a set of chrome Cyclones and a set of gold KN Diamonds with a polished rim, neither set worked for me. I believe the RS4 spokes suit the Capri really well, Ford seemed to have got the design right fir...

Re: Respray

Hi fellas, its been awhile, sadly my father passed away so I've been a bit behind with the restoration etc. The Capri went back in for more work, so she ended up having a complete respray in the end. 94262382_221979212561827_7547019921536843776_n.jpg My condolances on your father passing away.
