Wattsy's 1969 Capri
As some of you may be aware I have been battling to build my "dream" Capri with the aid of a local panel
shop. My original Capri I was building turned out to have some issues and had to be scuttled. I started on a
new body and as seems to be the usual case the car is now over time and over budget but at least now it is at
a stage where I feel comfortable posting up some progress pics. Most of these pics were taken today but some
were from a little earlier on in the build to show the odd this and that.
Car leaves on Monday for the 6 point cage. Plenty to go after that of course just felt maybe it was time for
