Hi and greetings from not so sunny Weymouth.


New to this forum, but I couldnt resist an ask... recently purchased a rolling resto project (got it through its MOT with a few points to work out, and then its off to the local Capri Jedi for a lot of tidying up and rebuilding some shaky bits). Anyhow I'm now terrorising my town driving around in it.


I am interested in finding out if anyone has any photos of the car from the past. The only clue I have is that it has the oldskoolford sticker across the windscreen! In case you know the car but forgot the registration its a MK2 in stratos silver (well half silver and half primer) with black vinyl roof and it now resides in Weymouth and not Bristol!


Cheers all

thanks for them pics and info!!


Going to be sticking a satin black boot hatch on the back (as it has a matt/satin bonnet on currently)... letting it run like that for a while.. then pinting huge red flames on the front (which may or may not end up looking like road kill)...

Then when I'm feeling lucky taking it off the road for a month or so to get the a pillars and scuttle sorted (have a donor laser all ready - front end write off - met a tree)... and the nasty crease on the passenger side inner wing straightened out... and who knows where from there..


when I can I will stick a picture up of the progress and stuff :)

Just to keep everyone informed, she's as she was when I bought her... apart from I have now debadged the boot and resprayed that. Going to fit the front bumper this week - if the weather gets better


Then i got to sort out the ignition as it seems to have been buggered up (thanks Lee!!), and hopefully she will run again after the head gasket work.... grrrr


Considering selling at the moment as I have run out of space and have a new project. Any interest please PM...
