    Well, sort of, as where she belongs is of course out driving on the road.
    But, after an enforced extended stay since mid December at a local garage to fix a leaky fuel tank, it was great to go and pick her up from there this morning.
    The fuel now stays in the tank.
    Unfortunately, the same can't be said for the coolant and the radiator which has a slight leak from either - or perhaps both - the top hose or radiator cap. But that won't stop me hopefully being able to enjoy the new to me toy. 20220107_155023.jpg

    - Capri II '78 series V8 -
    looks right at home, and a wonderful colour .. all looks very neat
    so being a 2ltr its a lovely easy simple package.. where are the streaks on the rad.. cap or hose .. do you have the correct cap in place?
    if there is the silly expansion bottle - cap has a rubber seal on top to keep air from being sucked in .. no expansion bottle - metal topped cap..
    leaky hose - get proper SS worm drive hose clamps - or proper 'jubilee' brand .. .. not cheap chinee knock-offs ..
