PS I was just looking at why you were saying you were "newish" to this forum when you had joined up in April 2014 ??? then I realised I was looking at my own profile...you will get used to this from me :doh:

Welcome to the forum TJ, superb looking car. Refreshing to see you keeping your Capri original at 23. Nothing wrong with some well chosen mods at all just nice to see a standard one for a change.
All the best,
Rob
