Took the shell to have it blasted during the week. Not too many surprises under the paint.

Shell cleaned and epoxy primed.
Time now to practice panel beating so working on getting the roof straight, had 11 dents just on one side!

You can see the remenants of one of the creases in the photo, there were three others in that area.
Anyhow i'll keep tap tap tapping away.

Good to see it progressing. That wheel well would be the biggest hassle to weld in - for me

How are you finding beating the roof with all the supports in the way. It’s royal pain in the backside for me. I’ve got one massive dent rear quarter where the lead wipe and seam is. Can only think cutting out beating and rewelding will work in that section. Looking great and a proper job.

Looks so nice to be working on totally cleaned shells. Makes it look more encouraging somhow.
 
you three guys must be responsible for keeping 90% of aus capris around.

I think Spud is saving them half way round the globe.

I'm only responsible for one Capri, and one is enough for me, although it's nice to have it clean finally and not looking so much like a wreck in the garage when the other half walks in. People are now asking what color i'm going to paint it not realising the work still to do.
 
Wiggy I have mainly been using the spoon and the piece of leaf spring in the photo to put pressure on the roof panel behind the frame. It slips behind the frame and roof skin and leaver off the frame.
 
May be a bit tricky if it was near the roof and rear quarter join, would have to remove the lead and see what can be done.

Stripped the boot lid to find more bodge work, looks like the car was "debadged", at some stage by hitting round the holes with a hammer and boging up only to be "rebadged" at a later date, by drilling new wonkey holes.
Bought a set of FORD letter badges off eBay, they are nicely made, to determine which holes needed filling.
Finished quite well after some gentle beating round the holes. Pretty straight forward but needed to be done.

Interesting project you're working on. I look forward to more update. 

Current Modification: Wheels upgrade to D503 Octane fuel wheels. Looking for replacement mud tires for Goodyear.

some people shouldn't be allowed to own a Capri.
Nearly as bad as fitting Torana taillights.
 
That would have been a nice surprise for you Blue.
Hopefully there are no more.

Your right deano, easy fix fortunately.
 
The swinging panels are ready for some paint after a bit of a clean and some beating. Hopefully get them primed in the next couple of days.

Doors and bootlid primed.
Purchased door and boot seals to check panel alignment.

Looks like a decent car now. Long way from where you began and love the workmanship. Well done.

Oh and I love slapping a panel. The other half always takes a video when I’m the garage doing it and just says death by a thousand hammers. Easy to get a good finish with the right shaped dolly behind it.
