This is the best looking BOA Capri I‚‚žÂve seen in ages! Just beautiful!!

In my opinion a lot of modified German Capris are modded ‚€¦‚Å“to death‚Ý, with too many and to big spoilers outside and a lot of different colours and gadgets inside. This one was perfect!!  
 
How did you manage to use the break booster? Normally they hit the LH valve cover on a LHD car. Have you tilted the engine or used a smaller booster?

@ KIB

yes you are right...the oem booster is too big...I have taken the escort mk 2 booster,its a bit smaller and fits perfect...in conjunction with the GTR 280 brake upgrade it is fine...The engine sits in capri std mounts...

Looks really good, well done.
