Capri front valance and driver/passenger wings

Postby 79Caprigl » Sun Mar 19, 2017 8:39 pm

Cash waiting, my front valance appears to have speed bump damage so looking for one in good condition.

Thanks, Shane

Hi,
If I remember rightly, the Capri Club had a NOS one for sale recently.
There's also this one on Ebay:

Bloody hell, I nearly bought a NOS one Matin (bug) had a year or so ago, for IIRC £350. That would`ve beaten the FTSE!

Hi,
Although the valance seems pricey, I dare say that somebody will buy it. It may be a long wait for another NOS one to appear.

Won`t `expressed steel panels` make the valances, I know there`s quite a long lead time, but they can`t cost £900? And if it`s not essential to keep the car on the road, might be worth considering?

Edit: £660 inc VAT

I believe so, they may wait till they can make a few in one go? I`d give them a ring.

Tickover sell the fibreglass ones for less than £90 (ex vat), got to be worth considering -
