Has anyone developed a tub, inner arch guard for the front wheel wells?
CCI have some, i have a pair myself but not fitted yet. Have heard they generally need a bit of trimming to fit properly.
Capri Jake - technically and as designed and fitted by Ford, those items are insulator panels.
they were originally designed to stop noise entering the cabin.. the knock on was that the stopped road-shit clogging up the cavities on the A-pillar area ..
also I believe Bert is referring to a complete wheel tub idea to surround the front wheel ...
Motomobil used to advertise them ..
and still do
the manufacturer is 'Lokari,
and they do front & rear sets for Capri & Capri II ..
Didnt know there was a full well ever avaliable.
I may be an auld fart.. but !
Yeh, Clockwork is right I call those panels "splash backs" I also have a pair to replace those that had turned to tin worm, when they turn to tin worm it's worse than not having them at all as they further retain road crud more efficiently, as my A pillars and Kick panels testify. It's the full tub I'm after so that I may extend the engine inlet and it's filter through the inner wing below the light housings so cheers for the info.
