Hello guys, I bought myself a MK1 Capri in november 2017, although I'm belgian I had to get it in the netherlands. It had allready 5 owners, it was originally Tawny Brown, and had a 1500 V4 engine in it. When I bought it, it was white and had a 1700 HC V4 engine in it. The previous owner offered me a cologne V6 block with it, but it was broken, so I didn't take that offer. The original number plate is kinda cool, it was 88-19-RS, I can't keep it though as I have to import the car into Belgium.. Here are some pictures of it: It will be a long restoring process, because I only have time in the week, and mostly only one or two evenings. So I started stripping down the car and I found rust, and more rust, and when I looked closer, I saw that there was even more rust. If you had to explain to somebody how much rust there was, they would answer with: 'Wow, that's really a lot of rust'. A quick analyse led to the conclusion that I needed new sills, new door pillars, new bits of floor, and a lot of courage, but this was all a bit calculated so I was not suprised. I already did buy some (expensive) replacement metal. The interior is in good shape, except the floor carpet. The engine runs, but i'll revise it. The gearbox is also in good shape, and the clutch felt like recently renewed. After stripping the car, my workplace was full of parts which needed to be tackled. (and my wife complained a bit that there were car parts everywhere) So I decide to start working on one part at a time and finish it so it can be stored safely. So this are the bits and pieces I have done so far: 1. The airfilter 2. radiator: 3. heater fan: I also did the wiper system, the heater box but I don't have pictures of that. Now I'm busy with the drivers door (so the LEFT one). The door is completly stripped, and new metal is placed where the old is rot. Don't shoot me, this are my first welding/metal works, so it's not perfect. New piece at the underside: New piece for one of the two corners: So that's where I am now. I'll hope to get some tips and tricks here.
