[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Work is now underway on our 1983 Ford Capri 2.8 Injection.

There has been a lot of ‘to-ing-and-fro-ing’ on this project with decisions on whether we are restoring her back to originality or customising the restoration.

It has now been decided that she’ll return to her original state which is very exciting but before we get too carried away with the finer details of the build, first we need to repair a substantial amount of bodywork corrosion that has developed over the years.

It has taken us a little under a week to fully strip the car back but we are almost at the stage where we can address the bodywork issues.

The car arrived with us with interior still in fantastic condition so we have carefully removed the entire set up inside as we intend to re-use all of the components.

The doors, sunroof etc have all been removed as has all removable trims. Removing the entire exterior is a must with this car as we need to address all bodywork imperfections now rather than hiding them away. Cutting corners always comes back to bite you, never cut corners!

All parts that require welding have now been revealed.
