Take one crashed 24v cosworth capri and whack it all into your capri.

So far just got the 2.8 rack and front coil overs off the red one in mine, still need to do rear LSD with disc brake cables etc and fuel tank and lines, the engine and box then I've got to wire it.

I'm sending it too

Seen his work on the capripower site and the welding and engine conversion work looks spot on,

Had a look local but thought I'd send it there in the end

Been a long time coming! Fair play for sticking at it though and thanks for updating -look forward to seeing it come along, will look great when finished :)
