Respray

Post by Dallas » Thu Mar 19, 2020 6:50 pm

She went into the bodyshop today to be resprayed, she is having the bonnet, front wings, valance, grill, light surrounds, slam panel and both doors done. Both doors have several door dings, so it will be nice to get them sorted. :)

Plus it will be nice to get rid of that black bonnet, I know some folk like the black bonnet look, but I like to see a nice solid colour on a car where every panel is the same colour, the black somehow loses the shape of the bonnet bulge.

I cant wait to get her back, but also dreading it at the same time.

Very nice Dallas can’t wait to see the pictures when she’s done :cool: I agree with the black bonnet but yellow Mk1 with a black bonnet is ok .

An exciting time but also a touch of anxiety it will be as expected.

Put some pics on here when done :)

:goodluck:

That will look lovely when it's all polished and put back together. The Rosso Red (or is it Cardinal Red) suits the Capri well.

Mine is Cardinal Red Paul, 1984 A reg. Think it was a limited run of that :?

:agree: Red does really suit the Capri, although it wasn't my first choice glad I have it now :D

Thanks fellas. ;) :cool:

Respray now finished, she is out of isolation, I'm really happy with the end result, a proper factory finish. :cool:

Looking very smart.

Is that a taxi mirror on the passenger side?

I'd be tempted to fit some 'S' stripes :burnout:
