I think it's great that you are under taking this project, and I hope that it proves lucrative for both of you as it IS one of the best LX bodies produced.

I have personally seen a LOT of Fox body Capris with mustang GT parts on them.  I don't care for the real cars when they do that because it takes from the originality of the Mercury, However, this build looks great.  I wish someone would do an accurate resin Capri to fit the modern Fox chassis from Revellogram.  All of the old capri kits are like 1:28 scale or something odd like that even though they claim to be 1:25, they seem too small and WAY under detailed by today's standard.

 

 The beauty of the fox body to me was that each owner could customize their car to their individual tastes. And they had SO many options to choose from.

 

Those old Revell Capri kits are a lot of fun to build, assuming that you like kit bashing, and have lots of patience.

They are fairly close to 1/25th scale, I think you may be referring to the Testors Capri which is like 1/20th scale? It is a VERY simple kit that I have yet to try my hand at.

Looking very nice!
Nothing better then restoring something that others had given up hope on.

Maybe a much smaller and more realistic belt would allow the hood to close.

Hmmm... I like the way you think.  

 

In the mean time, here are pics of the "new" hood painted but not yet cleared....
