This kit is my first attempt at details like spark plug wires and other things... This is my 12th kit sence I started the hobby back in Jan of this year... What do you think?

Nice! Really like the engine bay detail. Always liked the Fox-era Capris.
I think if I'd have built it I'd have used some smaller front tires, but that's just a 'personal preference' thing. B)

Nice job on the build Mike. Deffinatly not your every day mercury capri, this thing just looks like someone's toy they take to the track on friday/Saturday nights that they work on in their little garage. Think you did a great job on the wires especially for it being your first attempt. I have yet to attempt the wires and some other details yet but I'll get there one day. Anyways, nice build, what's on the bench for #13?
