Again, great job :applaud:

You should have kept that, asking big money for those now.....Maybe worth more than a Capri!!

Its garaged andy.but its been outside for 8 months .under a large sort of open shed not good for it.i first put a fleece lined waterproof car cover over it but when i took it off the car was condensating.so i left it off.then i rented a garage but that wasnt the best.ive just moved to a brand spanking house and the garage is dry so now i can crack on minting her back up.
Here she is plenty of room Image

That’s funny as my wife’s cousin did a 1969 David Brown one and it looks amazing he’s down in Redruth and took it to a show . They go for a lot of money once done .

There's only a delete option for the last post in the thread, so you could have deleted the duplicate and kept the first post of the two.

Back to Mel's car.
It looks as stunning as always, I love looking through the photos because Mel's car is pretty much the perfect Capri.
