Capri delivered today

Post by Bobpool » Sat Mar 30, 2019 6:11 pm

Delivered today.It was left for three years after an MOT hence all the mould.I have a leather Dash cover. Engine is sweet but Tappets are noisy. Should have it done during the Summer hopefully. Will need a few bits like wing mirrors and a few bits for the engine bay. Any advice and info on the car would be good. It's the First Capri I've owned and worked on.

Looks like the interior will come up with a good clean, the exterior looks ok maybe just a wash and polish for now, and you can repair/restore the rest as you drive it :)
Here is a useful link for Capri parts and services viewtopic.php?f=10&t=50830

You may want to invest in a Disklok or similar security device if the car is left outside especially at night.
https://www.disklokuk.co.uk/shop/disklok/ also available on Ebay around £100 or you may get a used one cheaper....Small size fits Capri.

:goodluck:

Hi
Great to see another Capri destined for the road again. It looks solid too and a later build/reg'?
I'm sure you'll make great progress on the interior; just need a dry day so that you can air it/dry the interior after.
I recently took my dash/pad/clocks/heater/blower etc out. Taking photos helped with putting everything back and I also put the small fixings/screws in small labelled bags.
During your dismantling/cleaning, you might even find the build sheet. It could be between the rear seat backrest trim and the actual backrest frame. Mine was located against the drivers side bulkhead, under the sound deadening material (Saarlouis build).
Enjoy working on/owning your Capri.
:goodluck:

Its very good to see youve started on it already. 8-) Buying and restoring this Capri is a great thing to do. Best of luck and keep the updates coming.
