My dorky ass tired after hydroplaning on bald Kumhos for 50 minutes, apparently I parked with my eyes closed

It took me a while to figure out how to detail wheels well.

the fuse for stop lights and tail lights are different, SHIT
 
hereís the problem at least I got to semi-gut it
 
fixed but that fuse has popped again since then on a road trip from west Michigan to North Chicago, with all of my stuff in it and 6 blown oil seasl, that was a bad-ass trip, stopping 50 miles to add 2 quarts of oil loaded down with a bunch of tool 4 wheels and tires, 100 pounds of books and a big ass trash bag of clothes not being able to see out the rear window in a thunder storm with no brake lights  
 
I found rust, the current game plan is to completely ignore it.
 
how considerate of them to give the rear passengers heat lol
 
not having the trunk key will not discourage me!

This was my turbo when I pulled the stock j-pipe, is this normal?
 
 
 
new valve cover
 
new blow-off valve, super rare old-school HKS SQV, when I do my intercooler piping itíll probably be up for sale so I can revert to my original plan of a SSQV with no insert
 
 
 
Since these pictures Iíve done another ass load of stuff then broke it bumping the rev limiter in fourth raping a supercharged grand prix.  Itís going to a shop for oil seal, belts, filled motor mounts, no a/c, probably a pissed off ACT race disc paired to a stock pressure plate and flywheel and a water pump at which point Iíll add a ventilated catch can, then STBs, Tokico/GC combo, Galant brake upgrade, new tires, some more weight reduction, a wideband, a vj-11, Megasquirt II, coil on plug, FMIC and a few interior bits.  Iíll probably stop here for a while fix everything that I fíed up, then descend deep into the relm of headwork, nitrous, built motors, trannies, lsds and other expensive things with increasingly diminishing returns :thumbsup:  All of this has inspired me to go work on it even though it doesnít run and itís really cold outside, so off I go.
Thanks for looking

I swear I just replied to this where did it go?
anyways: thanks Spiro, it takes alot more work than expected to take, host and post all of the pictures.
Caprityper: That's awesome, I didn't know that there was any of "us" around here.  If you ever want to hang out or wrench together or go rape some ricers just let me know.  Also do you know of any good shops around here that don't charge an arm and a leg? The engine has to come out for oil seals, a clutch, belts and a water pump.  Unless you have a heated garage with a lift, air tools, an engine hoist and lots of experience? lol

LOL- I have NONE of those things!!  I work out of an unheated barn, with no electricity!!  It's amazing what you can do by flashlight!
99.9% of all the shops around here have no clue what a capri is, let alone how to fix them.  I bought my mechanic a 1991 service manual (the thick one in the 3 ring binder) for him to keep.  Best money I spent!!  He does excellent work!  Eds automotive & Fleet Service, Ingleside, IL  (847)587-4997 - Just tell him Russ sent you!
I would love to get together and tear up some ricers!  I do that in the summer, up in Gurnee, by Gurnee Mills.

That's awesome, bringing your mechanic a FSM.  I found Bob's Garage who knew that a Capri was a 2 door convertible with a turbo 4 banger, he had some sort of service manual and knew that they were produced in australia!  I'll give Ed a call too.
My dad and I used to race around there before I had a car as well as down by the lake in Waukegan.  Easy money as long as you don't pop the hood and let them see the turbo, lol.  I'll catch you by pm once it warms up and we can exchange #s and meet up there sometime

I've heard good things about Bob's.  Easy to find to-Just look for the checkerboard roof!

Yeah, just pm me when you're ready to go for a cruise!
