    Well I've been rather poorly for a while now (but now recovered) as has my mate with the body shop who is working on the car for and with me, so little has been done in recent times. The cars metalwork is now complete. Tomorrow the glass comes out, the wings go off to be soda blasted and the phosphoric acid will be cleaned off the metal ready for skimming and then we paint. Thought I would never get to this stage, nearly threw the towel in several times, and swear I will never undertake a restoration of a consul Capri again.

    Great work, always loved these cars. Glad you haven't given up....must disagree with Kapri though. In my opinion a craftsman in metal can get within mm, finishing with a skim of filler. I think anyone can get within 1/2 inch!.....keep up the good work and hope to see this finished.

    Thought I would update. Things have been slow due to life taking a precedent. the pics are of the car a few weeks ago, it is now ready for color coat but haven't got any pics of it at that stage yet, but I will take some.

    A few more pics of its current state.


















    I'm looking for a chap called Michael wills who owned this car 20 years ago and made some significant changes to the car. Because of the new legislation that's coming in, I need to speak to him about the some finer details of changes he made to it. anybody on here in touch with him who could help?

    Lovely colour, looks like "purple velvet" that used to be used on mk1 Escorts.

    Its cabury purple pear and the roof is pearl white over purple. The roof shows hits of purple as the light hits it, and the cadbury pearl changes between blue and purple in different light.
