    Hi everyone, I've heard lots of good things about this forum. I'm a member of the surrey capri club. I have a 2.8i (early 4 speed model) hence the name. I am really impressed with the forum & all of its contacts & knowledge, I will try & post some pics of the car.
    Regards 4 speed 2.8

    Hi everyone sorry for the delay in images, I will get some current pictures this weekend hopefully in the nice weather?
    The car is a resto project, the engine was in the boot, where it was left 12 years ago so I was told, so driving to a meet is a long way off yet! Big thank you to mags for telling me to stick with it, & looking at some of the other posts, maybe mine isn't so bad after all.
    Where abouts are you in surrey Pas?

    I'm from Addlestone, where abouts are you?

    The 4speed is rare, so it deserves a rebuild, if I was to ever get another 2.8, I'd go for an early one!
    There's a nice X reg one being offered at auction, possibly in Brooklands..

    Look forward to the pics!

    Pas.

    I’ve just been given a friendly dig in the ribs from 4 speed 2.8 who reminds me that I promised to help him keep his thread updated. And I had a look and was surprised to find it’s over a year since he promised to post some pics and still they haven’t arrived.

    Anyway, he’s really got his hands full at the moment, having got married last year and between sorting out his new house and keeping everybody’s cars on the road he never has a moment to sit down and put his thoughts and pics into print. And since he’s such a lovely person and one of my best mates and I’m as guilty as anyone of taking his time to help with my car, how could I possibly say no?

    So here’s a taster. In April last year he took me to see his car. It was in, er, several pieces and he seemed in two minds as to whether it was worth saving but it didn’t look too bad so I encouraged him to get going and put it back together again. However, in August I received these pics:

    Things have moved on a bit since then but I'll leave you to ponder these before I continue with the story.

    Welcome to CP, Lot of work there, I made a roll over jig for my Capris, so much easier when you have that amount of welding to do. Finn.

    Sorry it's been a while everyone, with getting married & buying a house that hasn't been decorated since the 1970's I've been a little busy. Glad to be back
