Well..I assure you I am still alive and so is the Capri. I am in the process of putting in the Tubular K-Member; Coil Overs; Tubular A-Arms; Manual Steering..This should shed about 75 pounds of the car. Just wanted to post a update and let you know that this project has not died. It is alive and well. LATER....

Progress will be slow since this little bundle came along. On the bright side...I have extra hands to help as soon as she is older..LATER


Just a few spring photos. The Capri hasn't been out of the garage since October. With the baby being born and the cold/snowy days, its been tough. I must say the "amateur" paint looks pretty good. I am proud of myself. Especially, since I did it on my own. I'm going to let it set out in the sun for a while. Hopefully, no bird droppings...LATER

After a little dry time its looking pretty good. There are a few flaws, oh well. I think it looks pretty damn good. LATER...


Better pictures will follow after the paint is dry, but I just wanted to show you what has been going on. My lungs are full of red paint even though I had the respirator on. I think its going to look great once its all back together and the black calms that red down. Its brighter than I expected. LATER...

Some photos after it has time to dry. It looks great!!! I was worried when it was wet. I thought it was going to be to glossy. I need patience I guess. The rest of the car will be a flat red. I think its going to look awesome. Especially, for an amateur like me. LATER...

Just some before and after photos of the Capri(s) hood. It is Hot Rod Flat Black. This is after the first two wet coats. I'll take some photo(s) of it once its had time to dry. I'm going for the old school "flat" look. The car will be red and the hood and all of the trim will be black. Hopefully, its done before the baby decides to pop out. LATER...

Started putting some color back on the Capri. The black trim is looking good, if I say so myself. Going with a Kustom Shop Flat Primer(56' Corvette Red) for the main part of the car. Going to Flat Black the hood and call it done. My goal is to have it done by the end of this month and have all of the trim back on the car. LATER...

It took me several years, but my patience paid off with a set of Weld Draglites for the rear along with a set of Mickey Thompson slicks. Why am I excited you ask. Those changes represented 44 pounds of weight off the car. Which brings the total weight lost off the car to.....765 pounds.
