Hi. Some of you may be or maybe not aware that I am selling my Capri. It is a 1979 model and a recent buyer or prospective buyer has enquired about the what looks like insulation down the lower section of the bulkhead in the engine bay. I do recall somebody saying that this is quite rare on a MK3 and because mine is an early model this is why it has it as the MK2 used to. It hard to the touch and cracked in places. Can anybody confirm I have this correct please ? Thanks in advance

Mine has insulation --86 2.8 --although it is now so waxy having been soaked in the past with waxoyl -- i have also added off cuts of crapet whenthe house was done --more for sound deadening

The modern human ape by its nature is fundamentally flawed therefore why would that species allow a few of its kind to take charge of the rest??
