    Hi all, im ryan im 31 and a first time capri owner since summer last year. Im a sucker for a project to keep me in the workshop till late at night so a couple of months later of trawling ebay i found a 84 mk3 2.0 laser (originaly a 1.6) . After being told about the forum by a guy i bought a bonnet off i thought id sign up, im guessing some of you could save me a lot of late night head scratching. I now have the car completely stripped down to bare shell and going to get it on its side to start work on the under side . I have taken loads of pictures so far so i will try get some loaded up for a gander

    :welcome: If there's a better place for the support you need, I don't know of it. If you look through Members' Cars you'll find plenty of examples of similar work done by others, and the tech section is a big help, and when you get pics on your thread, you'll get direct advice...And you'll find your project rewarding before it's done. ;)

    Welcome to the forum.

    You done the opposite of me I joined in July and bought my car in December off a Forum member after doing a lot of research reading build threads ect.

    Get a build thread up and get yours pics on there. Mine will be a slow process but having the thread and seeing what others are doing is keeping me motivated for mine already you are further on than I am with mine.
