    Capri power is the #1 essential accessory for a Capri owner/restorer! I have received so much help probably saved me hundreds or thousands of yankee dollars. Not to mention a stay in mental hospital. Today I found an 11 year old post on removing rear window trim that kept me from wrecking the unobtainable aluminum trim. Everyday it’s been like that. It’s been decades since I’ve seen another Capri on the road here in central US therefore there is no one I can lean on for help. Thank you again!

    I feel like that every day, just up the road from you in Oregon. At one time, the aluminum trim was available at Motomobil, just up the road the other way in Germany. Not sure if they still have it.

    and if that fails i have a friend who is married to a German lady who live here but who has family there so could get it shipped over as well if its still obtainable from there
    i also remember a thread where someone made some parts for external trim

    Late to reply to caprinerd but thought your location humorous as I spent a wee bit of time in your Nooorrrrrrrfuk and Portsmouth a lot of time in those cities in Virginia USA. The UK version was much more accommodating to a sailor than in US. Attitude here was Dogs and Sailors Keep Off the Grass. Some say they saw signs to that effect.
