What sort of fettling do you require on it?  ;D

As for insurance, I've always used Adrian Flux, but theres plenty of others that do insure modified classics  ;)

I need to sort out idle, bit lumpy and at sub 30mph it err stutters , have to declutch and its ok.
Rev counter doesn't work , but been told I might have a pre 1984 rev counter.
Brakes are , errr spongy lol.
Clutch might be on the way out , as you need to depress to the floor, but I am happy , smiley
Oh need to find a parcel shelf and stock radio....
just a wee bit of fetling ;)

Hi Jim, Welcome. Have you got any pics of your Capri? I live in Rainham, Kent so not far from you & have a BOA fitted in my Kitcar. My mate has a lovely looking 2.8 with an X-Pack fitted,- although he doesn't get it out the garage much!
