GREETINGS FROM HOLLAND!
« on: October 12, 2010, 14:07:58 PM »
hi everybody!!

first of all excuse me for my english but i'm from holland  my name is chris i am 26 years old and have a 83 capri wich i saved from the breakers.
the capri was so wasted that i decided to rebuild it to a drift car and compete in the dutch drifting championship
i ve had this car for a very long time and only partipated once and destroyed the rear axle but to be honest i enjoyed more to work on in than drift  
now im single again and going to rebuild it again and try to compete more than once.

cheers everybody and hope you people can help me out because i wanne turbocharge it (its a 2.8)

Sounds good  welcome  

I too have a capri. It was going to be a moderately tuned show car weekend drive thing but honestly, the paint job didn't come out to concourse standard so Ive decided to go for serious power and use it a track/drift and daily driver

Can I ask where the chin spoiler and headlamps are sold? they look very smart. Wondering what to do with my own (basically standard '81) 2.8i capri at the moment

The lights are from ebay (of course) http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Crystal-Halogen-Head-lights-Ford-Anglia-Escort-lamps-H4-/380254655768?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item5888f19518#ht_2509wt_1199]http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Crystal-Halogen-Head...#ht_2509wt_1199
The spoiler is from the incredibly rare RGA widebody kit for the mk3 they did. It was 2" too wide for a std body capri so I modified to fit right. I could use it as a pattern for a mould if there was serious interest in it...

They will be done by a firm mate - I know the theory of GRP and have messed around a bit with cutting and shutting mine obviously but not about to turn my home into a GRP factory - too messy, noisy and labour intensive  - the options are foam filled black rubber or GRP like the original, I'm still researching the rubber option but I should have prices for GRP copies this week from a company that does one offs and small runs. Looks like I'm getting made redundant so I'll be turning a lot more of my attention to car related projects and enterprises  
Ive made prototype wheelarch spats for the capri which I'm still perfecting but if you like what ive done so far, you'l want a set off these too... I decided they were needed when I looked at how much the big rear wheels protrude where the body curves in towards the sill... doesn't look right! The spat blends the wheel in there, hiding the tread section from view when you look down the car from front to back...   I know what I mean    

Here look...  you can see almost the full width of the rear tyre

it is dutch, see the licence plates, from about 84, my 4i is a bit younger, but the plates dont differ that much.

chris, i'm building a 2.8i turbo using a mt75 gearbox, bought a turbo technics kit from marktplaats.nl, pistons from janspeedcapri, manifold from fordworld.nl, and the rest is ebay stuff. far from done, but, im on the way
