Good luck, good looking job.  My first Capri, the PO had used Radiator Stop Leak, several cans apparently, and all the small lines and passages and even hoses were plugged.  The hose from the back of the block to the IAC was solid.

I avoid stuff like that, it creates more problems that it solves in my experience. Stop Leak, oil additives, it's all snake oil to me. Routine maintenance and paying attention to your car prevents many issues from cropping up in the first place.

Got the gas tank back in with new fuel lines. I do need another rollover valve as mine was broken.
