X PACK CAPRI QUESTIONS

Post by Jackdr » Wed Apr 24, 2019 10:27 pm

Has anyone fitted an X Pack kit to the Capri?
what's involved in it does the entire front guard need to be removed or does it sit over the guard and cut some of the old guard out and with the bat what happens there?
also exactly how much wider does it make the Capri and what options do people use to fill out the guards and by how much can you fill them out?
I'm going to run an X pack on my Capri and I'm thinking about putting Nissan Silvia s14 front and rear in it.
I need some accurate measurements to work out a plan before I start buying bits, cheers

Sorry, can you expand on what mean by 'guards' ?

CCI sell a couple of different X pack body kits and can probably give you dimensions and fitting information if you ask them:

https://www.capriclub.co.uk/X_Pack_Mk_2 ... --341.html This is listed as a Mk2 kit but can also fit the Mk3

Ah so he wasn't trying to worry us old codgers then when he was talking about 'cutting out the old guard'. Thats a relief. :chillpill:

Tickover also do X pack kits; https://www.tickover.co.uk/fibreglass.htm
