RESTORATION PROJECTS - FORD CAPRI CARS

Below are a few of the latest restoration projects that I have worked on


 

MK2 2.0 GL in Oyster Gold

Customer restoration nearing completion. MK2 2.0 GL in Oyster Gold. Total ground up strip repair and rebuild, has rechromed bumpers and fully retrimmed interior to refit then finished off and MOT'd.


1985 2.8 Injection Special

This car has already had numerous repairs to replace previous bodges. In the pictures you can see the passenger side inner wing repair taking shape. It was decided to use a full length inner wing repair panel due to the numerous and poor patch repairs done previously.

Once the inner wing is repaired then new strengthener panels will also be fitted before the outer wing is fitted

.


MK2 3.0 Ghia

Another customer restoration this 3.0 Ghia is being totally stripped in preparation for the acid dipping process. Everything has to be stripped from the bodyshell as the acid will devour everything except steel.

Once the dipping is completed then the job of replacing the corroded panels will begin. While the shell is away, as many items as possible will be powdercoated and refurbished ready to fit onto the finished bodyshell.

I always try to use as many of the original parts as possible for the rebuild. Sometimes this isn't possible if a part is damaged or otherwise in too poor a condition to be reused.
