    I like tri-bars, you could always modify the center caps to add a mercury emblem.

    Hey Lynn, this is Byron…I live up the street in east Mesa and part Mustangs out of my house. You came by and picked up a couple of things before (azfoxbody.com). I stumbled on to your thread and checked out your progress. Pretty cool! I really like the Capri noses too. Back when I lived in MT through ’93, virtually all I could find and afford were Capri 4 cylinders so I would buy them for $500 and swap in 289s, 302s, and 351Ws. Made for a lot of low budget fun cars.

    Everyone on here will probably beat me up for this, but back in ’90 a friend of mine had an ’81 Capri and I had an ’80 notch. We were getting them ready for paint at the same time and I noticed that the body lines looked the same so I swapped his hood and front cover for my hood and cover and we painted them as is. Here’s a pic of it.

    Beat me up if you want to, but I think the notch with the Capri nose rocks. I also put Capri tails on it painted to match.

    That does look pretty good. As much as i like the Capri fenders on a Capri, i just don't like them on a coupe as much. The nose looks right at home though.

    even this coupe? 80 coupe, came with no nose, and i had a 87 front end,and 84 carpi fenders... I wanted to buy the capri at the junkyard... They wouldn't let me... It was an 84 t-top, 5 spd, 5.0, tan interior... All that was left was the fenders and shell. All that to say, don't be mad that i took them for my coupe.

    I know the picture sucks, but it's Mustang fenders still. Just the bumper cover, hood, and tail lights are Capri. Even the hood scoop is Mustang!

    My son decided for me that I need to go back to blue (he's getting it when I croak. lol) . He was so ****ed at me and Dave for painting it black. I wish now that I would have just left the paint alone until I could afford a real paint job.
