    While body works continiues, I also think about accessories and look of car. First I ordered banded wheels from local manufacturer. (Wheels are originally cortina mk5 wheels.) They are turned to 7" wheels. Kumho semi slick track tyre 215/50R13 is added to rear. Front is 185/60R13. IMG-20200622-WA0003.jpg

    Mercedes E350 coupe electric controlled seats (will be covered as cappucino tan letaher), wallnut steering wheel, and wooden cluster fascia. Thanks Garry for fascia because he sent it from USA.

    I don't want to cut that beatiful wooden fascia to use aftermarket radio. So I bought a classic ford radio. Of course bezel is not suitable for capri. New bezel is manufactured with 3d printer.

    Body shop finished new roof panel, trunk lid and fender flares. Rear window washer and spray is canceled. Those are good for only extra weight and roof rust. IMG-20210825-WA0010.jpg IMG-20210825-WA0012.jpg IMG-20210825-WA0013.jpg

    Excellent, saving a Capri that way. It did want more miles on the clock, and now looks sure to get them in style. Capri Power in action, look how it works!

    You don’t mess around, What a transformation, will be great to be able to slam the door without rust hitting the driveway.

    lovely work youre doing..
    I have a question - the carburretor. what is it, it looks different to the usual 32/36 DGAS .. and why an electrical connector on it?

    and an observation for you with the distributor .. its a trigger insert I take it ..
    so Black wire as normal where you contact breaker (CB) wire goes - coil negative/revcounter wire ..
    Red wire - do not connect to the coil positive - wire that direct to an ignition controlled live feed .. most likely fuse 5-6-7 .. depending what model or year your Capri is ..
    Enjoy the final build up
    Looking good Koko

    Thanks all. Carburetor is 32/36 dgav that used in 92 turkish made ford taunus 2.0. My mechanic told me that, 12v ignition feed needed to let the fuel in carburetor. When igntion off, fuel is blocked.

    I will post some photos about new engine and interior next week.

    aha - a fuel stop valve - well, if youre lucky on your wiring harness there may be a specified connexion for it underneath the headlamp relay ..
    on much later Capri models that were fitted with the VV carburettor, or those with the electric choke, that was the specified connexion ..
    same wiring position is perfect for the different types of electronic ignition kits and triggers (like yours)
