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

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.

Welcome Brianna, hope your Capri doesn't have many rust problems.

Hello all, my name is Brianna. I purchased my Capri in Michigan, but I have since moved to central Illinois. I was browsing craigslist, looking for a cheap project with a manual. This popped up, I did some research, and I fell in love. It wasn't in the best condition (still isn't), but I love that it is small, unique, and it needs a little bit of everything so it will be a good learning experience.
Dream cars are hard to pick, and I haven't been able to test drive and feel out many cars, so I would say I need to do more research before I can answer this question.
If the Capri came back, I think they should keep it a convertible, not make it into a hatchback. Keep it with a small, turbo engine with manual as an option. Make it an affordable weekend sports coupe, for those of us who can't afford corvette's.

Yeah, already read that, step 11 is definitely not that easy on my car. I got it out finally after much wrangling and swearing.
