    Sorry guys, still working on getting a front end. Parts are hard to come by and when they DO pop up, I'm usually broke. :cry:

    No luck on a front end. The red one in the jy has a tear in it. Might have to just settle for it, though. :(

    Ok, so tomorrow were going to the junkyard to tear the front end and hood off the red Capri. Assuming it's still there.

    Please, let it be there. :(

    Since you were unable to source a RS nose then I would go with your idea of putting the Saleen lower with the Capri upper :nice:

    Really need someone to explain how to convert the wiring from the Aero 3-wire 2-headlight setup to the four-eyed 5-wire/4-headlight setup.
