Finally gave up on the idea of painting the car myself, bit the bullet and sent the car off to get sprayed by someone who knew their shit.
The car departed... Show more as a mainly white and bog coloured shell and returned almost 9 months later wearing a bright new coat of vermillion fire.
The bonnet is still awaiting some blackouts which will match the panel below the front windscreen, and the boot is not yet re-attached.
I decided to paint the engine bay myself to save $$$ as I can do a reasonable job and after-all this is not going to be a show car.
The 1600 motor is currently undergoing a rebiud whenever I find a spare second, which is not often. The block, head and booster have been sprayed to match the body and I have detailed many of the other engine components so should look pretty sweet when its all put back together.
Check back soon as more to come Show Less
At a glance the dash looks reasonable, but lift the dash cover and....OUCH!!! the dash cover is on temporary but to get the dash re-done properly will cost a... Show moreround $500 so if anyone in Australia wants to sell a Capri dash, you've got a buyer.Here is the result of 30 years of amatuer wiring attemps, and this is after I cleaned it up abit. I will have to rewire everything, but need a long weekend to do it in as a pro will cost $$$ and Im only 18 with no money. Still, there are worse ways to blow your hard earned cash.I designed and built this rear shelf using custom wood. It is nowhere near original but enables me to fit Sony Xplod 6x9 3-ways above the fuel tank. It is yet to be covered and will have the Capri logo printed, embossed or inlaid in between the speakers, any ideas how I can do this would be most appreciated? I've got a pair of Blaupunkt 6" splits to go in the front but havn't got round to it yet as I will have to make custom build-outs so that they fit. Show Less
