Hi, disregard my previous comment, I have just seen your post in 'parts for sale'.
I was wondering what happened to the arches, I took those pictures in my kitchen a couple of years ago.
Glad to see them going onto a Capri as intended.
Please keep us updated as you go along. :D
Cheers

You know a true enthusiast when he modifies his garage, raising the roof height, so he can work on his car:

those arches have been thru many hands, I Think
Luckely for me no one dit put them on ther car 8)
rasing the roof and put in a lift, is the best thing I have done
I wounder why I dident do it many years ago.
I am far to old to be crawling around on the floor :lol:
I am waiting for some parts from all over the globe, that hopfully will ariwe this week
so I can begin mounting the rear arches.
so I used the time to spray my enginebay with sanding

Capri Perana colours:



The yellow Perana paint code 1B = Bright Yellow, I know for certain is 1969/1970 Boss 302 Mustang Bright Yellow.

The red Perana paint code 1A = Peri Peri Red, I am fairly sure, but am not quite 100%, is 1969/1970 Boss 302 Mustang Calypso Coral.

These might help:
