    A few weeks ago, I alerted a friend to a Capri at Pick-n-Pull in California. He was able to remove these parts I've been wanting, and a few more -
    The weatherstrip from under the bonnet, a reg plate lamp socket, a few small clips, and surprise, a mint condition windscreen I didn't expect. All for $60 American.

    On the way there, stopped for a leg-killer 9-mile hike and a day of kayaking at Caples Lake--Wished you were here. ;)

    If it could have waited until this weekend, the parts would have been on sale, half-priced, but that Capri is gone now. I think Capri Power should have its own Pick-n-Pull.

    I know many folks here around don't ... but I do keep in touch now (thru fb) with various Capri pages..
    when I see some of the stuff/sh!t going thru the UK pages, then look at and take note of the news and threads in the USA.. its like 2 different worlds!
    Spares at reasonable (cheap) prices, loads of folk helping each other.. support and various local shows..
    relatively good cars being sold at very low prices..
    I do believe that Gary here could be in a true Capri heaven..
    OH - and the 'Swarm' in Kentucky coming up with some real nice guys and cars attending from all around..
