Hi all, couple of replies. As for a gold Perana I didn't write it properly my meaning was the replies I got here gave me history on my car of which that information to me was like gold so hope that clears that one up. As for BG 266 I believe that car to be an authentic Capri and very much trust the owner there has just been scoundrels trying to sell it that don't own it using fake plates. I will Pm you Wayne regarding engine mounts and hope your project is going well.

Hi All, can anyone help with bonnet pin placement on a Capri Perana. As some will know when mine was restored the owner removed them and removed the FORD badge. As I don’t want to have the bonnet fly up while driving and would like it to be more original I’m trying to reinstall. If anyone can help with where they go and also which is the correct pin to buy. Thanks.

I have seen two distinct locations for bonnet pins, one being closer to the leading edge of the bonnet, the other being set slightly further back.

I have also seen quite a few cars that have the pins mounted on the pressings intended for the spot lamps to mount on the slam panel.
Mine are mounted there, but I believe the pins were an option so could have been fitted later.

Thanks. I think mine must be further back.
No sign they went through the spot light holes looking at my bonnet.

I think each was fitted by owners as they wish. Both mycars have them more to the side of the bonnet on the inner fender.
