    its a Capri of a certain age.. you have seen pics of others.. wee bit rot in a Capri should not be any kind of surprise...
    it can be fixed... I have near 500 pics in my album, but you cannot do it in the open in your drive-way..

    so there is your Capri ..
    you either spend time and cash fixing it .. or not..

    tbh - am not surprised at this your latest post..

    go play Sierras

    Yes I may go and play Sierra but it doesn’t need any welding it is a lovely car drives nice gives the same Performance has a 2.8 injection Capri and more but I still love my Capri and all Capris so to see it go would kill me

    I have to disagree with the comment about not being able to do a big job out in the open on your driveway, I do all my work outside because im not lucky enough to have a garage and over a few months am 260 hour's into stripping down, cutting out and welding a s2 erst (shell fully levelled and braced with inch box section), in that time I have replaced the floorpans, rebuilt both a pilars including replicating inner structures, battery tray, inner and outer sills, inner and outer rear arch, inner quarter, lower quarter, rear panel, chassis leg, boot floor and a few other bits including seat crossmembers, the only downfall is I've had to wrap it all up now the weather has turned, my capri was also welded up at the same place

    Hi mate I totally agree with what you have posted i know how much harder work it is to do a restoration on a car with limited space and tools I have had to teach myself to do welding by watching YouTube videos lol but I got the hang of it ok I think. I am doing my Capri out side now because no room in the garage because my Mrs keeps putting her crap in there I am still working on it now on dry days when I get time so to all you out there who have not got a nice warm garage to work in I salute you panch. Has seen in pick

    I have worked on cars in the drive for over 30 years as even when I did have access to a garage it was too small to work in . I wouldn't recommend it in winter but on a warm day it's fine and the only pain is inquisitive neighbours stopping by for a chat.

    I have two ramps in my workshops and an old four poster outside on a hardstanding, on a bright dry day I don't mind working outside as the natural light is much better, also as my workshops are too big to heat properly it's often warmer outside!

    It's not much of a pleasure this time of year, a few years ago during a particularly bad spell it got down to minus 12 inside the workshop.

    Sounds a bit like Steve's over at March (the place not the month!) Thats similar, if I go over there for work on the car between october and march (the month not the place this time:D) I usually stand outside for a bit to warm up!
