    86 Capri Restoration Pic heavy

    right guys i've decided to start a thread on my capri 1.6ls restoration.

    History:

    the car belonged to my brother-in-law who owned it for 6 years and during that time it has had a few modifications.

    2.8i wheels
    2.8i half leather interor
    2.8i fuel tank
    single leaf rear springs
    its on its 4th engine (1.6 original, 2.0ltr, 2.9 sierra, then back to 1.6 non original)
    it has had battery relocated to the boot (to fit 2.9 engine)
    lowered 2" on front

    i have been involved in fitting all of these mods and grew quite an attachment to the car so when he emigrated earlier in the year he gave to me to do with as i see fit.

    I have decide to give her a light restoration as im on a very tight budget working in a very tight space :(
    here is what she looked like when i recived her


    -img_0825-jpg

    first thing was to start on rear end removing axle, fuel tank

    -154c70d6-jpg

    -c94ada65-jpg

    then a good rust removal sesion ond waxoil

    next came the axle

    -acd472d1-jpg

    all the rear diff was cleaned internaly and new oil and brake shoes and a good clean and paint

    -e9a0358c-jpg

    i didnt realy take many pics after this but will get some more next time we have a nice day.

    the other work done so far is

    fuel tank cleaned and painted
    prop shaft cleaned and painted
    new brake pipes
    new rear flexi pipe and rear anti roll bar bushes
    new handbrake cable
    all under side wax oyled
    servo and master cylider removed and refurbed
    all front suspention and brakes refurbed
    front subframe cleaned and painted

    however there is a small hole in floor pan and a small hole in rear wheel arch that still need welding

    to be continued..........

    remember seeing a black wide body conversion mk3 capri (think it was called an X pack) with a twin square headlights conversion many moons ago it looked the dogs bollox with the flaired arches and twin square lights...

    The forum appears to be scaling them down as appropriate. This is what I got "1,024px 764px (scaled to 962px 718px)"

    Lovin' the old skool Capri - Can't wait for the next load of pics
