    Really good pics mate, think you need to take more of the interior, it will give you something to do as well as provide more reference for folks ;)

    I can vouch for that, I owned a MK4 2.0S same colour scheme, same seat trim, what a brilliant car, an indicated 95mph in 3rd gear, I remember my seats were a pain to clean and keep clean.
    tazla, your whole car looks immaculate, it's the kind of finish I will be aiming for with mine.

    It’ll happen one day, always watching for sale... still got some handy OE parts stashed too. Champagne gold 2.0s, tweaked not daft like my YB would be hard to resist. If I’m not too skint after lockdown I think I’ll be on the hunt. I pished too much cash on daft cars a while back but have been good for ages so the mrs is more open to a capri returning to the garage :)
