My dream come true

Post by zeus » Thu Jun 24, 2021 10:50 pm

Hello everyone, after looking for a space to write about my Capri, I have come to the conclusion that I will not be able to do it all at once ...
Time is what it is ...
So I'm going to try to do it in stages, I hope you can forgive me, as everything I write depends on the google translator ... sorry about that.
I will also write in the Capri Power forum to cover more people ...
I bought this car in mid-April, The car has been incredibly well cared for, the owner before me, rescued it from a garage in which he had been resting for 13 years, and from then until I bought it he was giving it pampering, but we'll talk about that.
Greetings, today was a hard day ...

Oh dear, that doesn't sound good.
It sounds as though you have encountered some unexpected problems, but I'm sure that they're nothing you won't be able to sort out. I look forward to seing some photos of the work as it progresses.

:goodluck:

Andrew.

This is the image that the car had when I bought it, I removed the stickers because I did not like them, although they did not look bad at all ... (some idea here).

This is a photo without them ...

Basically the previous owner painted it completely, he took his job to do it right, taking everything apart.
The only thing that I did not paint was the engine compartment and the interior of the trunk, keeping these the original paint and showing the real state of the car, which is incredible, I expected to find some rust, but I have not been able ... well.

The front and rear shock absorbers were changed for adjustable Koni at the rear and I don't remember the brand of the front ones, but the car goes quite hard and does not balance anything.
Image

The electronic ignition (delco) was put on, an oil decanter, the brake pump was changed and metal hoses were put in, the engine was decarbonized, the shock absorber cups were changed, and some other little thing that I forget ... .

I have a problem with the photos, I'll solve it ...
My apologies

Nice car, I like the colour
I'm the one that leaves all those shoes in the carriageway.

Don't worry, you're not breaking any rules of this forum. Mainly because there aren't any ! :D

I would post the photos for you, but I can't see them on Capri Power as I'm not registered on there. I'm sure somebody will do this for you.
