    Mk3 capri body...

    Hi all, my capri has good paintwork and looks really nice imo but i have seen a couple of others that look so much better, they seem to have removed the rear bumper and rubbing strips down the sides and fitted a chrome bumper on the front, i was wondering if anyone knew where to find a chrome bumper for a mk3 capri and does anyone know if taking off the rubbing strips leaves nasty holes and how to cover them?

    cheers

    Taking the strips off reveals special rivets with sticky out bits.
    I expect you could grind them down the push them through to leave a hole which could be welded and filled.
    The chrome bumpers are probably off a Mk2.
