Hey guys, think i already posted some pics of my little capri a little while ago but thought i'd write my story in full, for any interested, a few mods done, an engine rebiuld among other things. It all started november ish of 2006, when i bought a beautiful 2L laser in grey from leeds, thanks very much to my parents who drove me up to collect, and had an awesome drive back on the motorway. This was my first car so you can imagine how jelous my friends were (pic 1) After only a short time of using lead additive and the engine feeling tired we decided to try a rebuild, found a unleaded head, and many new parts for as cheap as we could and started on a driveway and in a very damp, cold and unlit shed, (pic 2). needless to say with all that was against us me and my brother managed to get the engine finished in only a few weeks, and it still runs perfectly (touch wood). i drove it for some time before hittng a dog on a small road early one morning, unfortunatly the dog died, but it was instant. the car was in a bad way so i took it off the road for a while, (pic 3) and drove a very nice little mk 1 golf i found cheap in my area as a run around. (pic 4 for any one who likes them.) The repairs were the first body work i had done and it does show with the finish of the paint job, but with the replacment parts from evesham we did get it finished. welding was mostly done by my brother who was much more experienced than myself (that is to say he had done it before! hehe) but it was back on the road (pic 5) we then did a track day ( the best day of our lives,) was awesome to take it and see what it could really do, needless to say i was by far the slowest car there, the place was packed with lotus elise and caterham boys. with a few back end slips and a lot of body roll i found i may need to make a few ajustments to the cars suspension. This was the next step. after not being able to afford the insurance tax or MOT in christmas 2009 i had to take it off the road, and a few hours work later had bought myself a panhard rod and anti tramp bars, (for a escort but i did a little change or two to the brakets and they fit now!) polybushes all round, single leaf springs, and adjustable AVO dampers. (pic 6, and a few adjustments pic 7) I had also found a nice pair of Minilite wheels, 7X13 front and 8X13 rear, which do really fill out the arches. along with extended rear leaf shackles and a bib spoiler it really does set off the look of the car. The last major problem was the exhaust, i had placed the panhard rod body mount right in the way, so that had to be changed. I decided to do away with the back box and make a small side exit from the silencer just infront of the axle, this did make a really good opertunity for me to have a go at the welding! (pic 8) now i have just driven it back to university, a lot of fun and very happy with it for now (the rest of the pics) More pics as we go along, as any more changes, the next should be in summer and will be a similar rebuild of the front suspension and the brakes all round. i shall be doing a few little trips up to ryhadar dams so shall post a pic or two from up there, hope all enjoy your capris this year and look forward to seeing many of you at the capri show in Evesham!
