My 2-8injection Restoration/Project (pics)


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I thought it was about time I posted some photo's of my 2.8injection Capri that is halfway through its restoration.

 

I have owned the car for about 3 years, and decided to take it off the road last year to bring it up to scratch.

 

Here is a pic of the car before i started (looks better in this photo!)

This is a pic of the new rear outer and inner arches:

This is the new original ford tailgate (old stock) fitted for sizing:

This is the front o/side inner wing, underseal removed, rubbed down to bare metal, treated and stone chipped (it has been painted with hammerite grey paint but I havent taken a photo of it yet!):

Thanks for the comments guys, I am fortunate enough to have an excellent welder as a friend! :beer:

 

Beakster, here a few pics of the car when the sill, wheel arch and part of the front wing were removed.

 

The picture quality is a bit rubbish as they are photos of photos! I deleted them from my memory card!

 

This is once the sill was removed, some patching up was required before the new sill went on as you can see:

This is a pic of the bottom half of the front wing, just under the side moulding, which was rotten:

And this is the repair:

One of the rear arches removed:

Thanks for the comments fella's!!

 

Vista, that 2.8 you had looks sweet! I do like a Capri in grey, think it really suits it!

 

it's interesting Looking at the interior picture with the leather steering wheel & gear knob matching the Recaro grey leather, mine must have been that colour once! :lol:

 

they are a dark worn out grey now!!
