A mate of mine fitted one from fibersports it seemed a good fit but his filler work was naff to say the least! Not sure who does them now  :'( but there is a few capri fans on here so I'm sure someone will know. Your gonna need some big wheels he had comp cxn splits 9s on the front and 10s on the rear and you could have gone wider.
But It did look awesome :wacko: let us know how you get on mate ;D

Cheers Ade

it doesn't matter where you get the kit from, they all dont fit and need work to make it fit.

if i am correct, there is only 1 or 2 manufactors for these kits.

not cheap.

and there should be 1 in the u.k, but i cant remember there name.

the wings i had from them where not so good. i had to cut out the headlight aeria becaus it was 3 cm to small and remodel the front wing aeria, so it would follow the front wing.

and they never stayed straight if they got hotter in the sun.

if i ever have to use these fiber wings again, i would re enforce them with aluminium sheet metal in the back to make sure they stay in the right shape and dont start to buckle.

Cheers ade ;)

Paul - The wings didn't come up so good actually - bit ripply, like water so I'm getting them redone. One painter said they just need more laquer and then it will mop out but whatever it takes, they will be as good as the bonnet and tailgate by the time I show the car, trust me ;)

As for hot sun... not really an issue in england :angry: ;D
