I started building this capri when I was 17 yrs old. These are what is almost the finished product over the 4 yrs I've had the car.
I couldn't have done it without the help of the guy standing next to the car here my father. He did the paint job on this car. He also did alot the body work with the few dents and stuff that were around. I had to switch out 1 door a fender and the hood. Three coats of primer are fuuuun to sand by the way. And here Is a picture of the air brush work a guy he met did for me the guys name is Mickey Harris if anyone knows of him he's one of the top airbrush artist's in the US and has work that hangs in the Pentagon. He is absolutely amazing to watch in action.
The car is undergoing an engine swap at the moment the 302 kicked out and is getting replaced by a 351W. I might need to replace the hood if we cannot find a way to increase the cowl w/o messing up the Airbrush work in which case this hood will hang up in my garage as I don't want to mess it up.
Heres a pic of the car with a 52 ford pickup my dad's friend owns I helped work on it some too as well as a few other misc As you can probably tell from these 3 pics here yes it does have 2 different rims on it, that is because its got an 8.8 rearend out of an 88 lincoln with a 5bolt pattern + disc brakes and we haven't converted the fronts to 5 bolt yet.
That would be me with the oldschool Northstars jersey on
New pictures up coming in the next few weeks or months. Put in a new cross member from AJE to lower the engine to get the hood pictured back on finally. Also will be adding a Xenon air dam. Could not find a reproduction or used RS Air Dam at the time I bought the Xenon. As well some Marchal Fog Lights to go in said air dam. Will also be switching the front over to 5-lug sometime in the near future to accomodate the rims.
