I've only just read this properly with the pictures (cos they don't load when you view at work), and I think this is shaping up as one of the best Capris in the country.

Cheers Rob :)

Yep really pleased mate. Tickover really did a stunning job. Its almost as if its their own car the detail they go into when refitting parts, hoses etc so it all looks proper smart. They did it with my suspension and my drive train so this latest project is the icing on the cake and great peace of mind job well done. Next up is a new windscreen..... then another little project.....:)

Thanks again Rob. Shame I cant make the CCI Nationals. Would have been great to catch up with you and finally get to see your capri in the flesh :D but hopefully later in the summer. I am deffo on for Brooklands. Cheers Rob
