Hi Folks I am the owner of a 1984 2.8i which I bought new in .....1984. I drove it for close to 200,ooo miles up and down the country. Joined CCI which at that time was much less organised than it is now, until 1994 when I put her into dry storage. The Janspeed exhaust had rotted through and I couldn't afford another! I always intended to get her sorted out and back on the road but life took over until 2017. I rejoined CCI and was pleasantly surprised to see the range of spares and services on offer. I then decided to find someone to undertake the body repairs. Eventually decided on Andy's Autobody in Rochester. Loaded her on to a trailer and off we go round the M25. Andy did a cracking job on the body and paintwork but because the rust was deep rooted I decided to have the shell and main components acid dipped and primed. I sent the engine off to Specialised Engines for a complete rebuild. The whole project took surprisingly little time. It was almost too quick, especially when it came to finding the money to pay for it! Anyway she's all sorted and running almost like she used to! I'm attending to all the minor stuff like repairing the parcel shelf and trying to get the temperature gauge working. (Martin at capri gear finally sent me the correct sender after I tried 3 or 4 others from other suppliers) I've already found this forum to be really helpful and Capri owners seem a friendly bunch. I will be asking lots of questions on here to all those wise gurus who know capris better than me. Let's hope she'll do another 200k miles!
