    Thought I would say hello and introduce myself
    Been a life long fan of capris, my favourite being the mk1 after my dad had a mk1 facelift 1.6xl in daytona yellow. Always wanted a 3.0gxl and found one this year and currently amassing parts to start its restoration. Any advise or help greatly received. Looking for parts and recommendations on people to help. Based in altrincham cheshire. Currently looking for someone who does engine refurbishment/restoration and detailing as well.

    Regards

    Adam

    Hi Adam and welcome to the power forum. Spares are possibly available from Martin from www.caprigear.co.uk. He is also on this site. Also have a look on Ebay from time to time.

    When you get a chance, stick up some pics of the motor. Happy hunting. :thumbup1:
