Rear light panel

Postby Gaz-LS » Mon Jul 10, 2017 9:44 pm

Hi all does anyone know if you can get the rear panel which incorporates the rear lights. I know you can get the rear valance but the part above the valance I need or is it possible to get valance with the above part together? Or is it best to fine a decent one off s scrapper? Any info appreciated. Gaz

A scrapper is probably the cheaper option. You could try Martin at Capri Gear or CCI and see if they have anything. Otherwise I believe Expressed Steel Panels do the part. I think it's the last panel on this page

I've got to put one on my 3.0S and I bought a rear end that had been chopped off an accident damaged car. It came with complete rear panel and sound inner and outer rear corners. I paid about £80 for it and bought it from a chap called Paul in Coventry who goes by the ebay name of V8MK3Capri.

His phone no is 07766 893510 and he has just about any bit you need.

Thanks guys I'll give paul a ring in Cov. I did look on express panels website but there's no image so wasn't completely sure it was the one I need, well I need lower valance anyway.
