I made a boo boo on 1 - ended up the boot opening was 5 mm odd out - so might brace it all before I start

It's looking great. Intersting how you have routed the brake lines. Using the outer mounts. All my Capris are different and I have one that has four brake lines across the heater bubble. In one of my manuals it shows that as being an option. I also have major work to do on one of mine with roof, A pillar and inner and outer sills so need to think about how I brace it while all that gets done. Won't be happy once finished if it's doors don't close.

thats how i thought the brake lines went , and as you mentioned there are few different ways and some have the extra lines etc ... i only placed them there thinking thats how it was from factory , that was 1 of only a few parts that were still on the car when i  got it so i put them back as it was
 
cheers

I understand that australian capri v6 with duel master usually have two brake lines running across the plenum. I also understand how english capris with single master including rs3100 have three brake lines running across the plenum. But four brake lines, how does this work?

im almost ready to start the car but im having probs with the coil wiring
 
been thru all the loom before i put it in and all seem good got all dash lights working and gauges working fuel sender etc all working  it just seem like theres no power goil to the coil
 
am i missing something ???
going by workshop book the coil wire is on the same loom as the starter solinoid  had  it working before ,  but somehow i get nothing from it now cleaned the fuse box fuses as well but nothing  happening only thing i can think of is maybe ignition barrel switch is playing up  its got me stumped ,, ill try and go over every wire again and re check all the earth wires again

Fat brown wire to positive on the battery.  Thin black return wire to negative on the coil from the distributor.

 i have the keneth bell auto press workshop manual and the haynes  all my wires match the auto press rhd model and it shows  that the white / yellow two wire that join together at the male plug  goes to the coil
 
also shows that the w/y comes from the starter solinoid  then onto the coil as well as the  white red line goes to solinoid as well
 
and the dissy wire to coil
 
doesnt the coil on pos side need power  i cant get any signs of power to the pos side of coil

Positive goes to coil. Negative to dizzy. Bypass it to start it. To make sure it works cord from battery and alligator clip. Have you joined different looms together.

The extra wire from the starter solenoid to coil is to provide the coil with 12V while cranking.

Not an auto trans originally by chance?  They had an inhibitor switch in the loom which will need earthing
