Like I said, the hood on Marty Witt's Capri is a Harwood 87-93 Mustang piece that's been cut to fit.

Yeah, FUCK Crapanati Composites/Champion. They had to change their name because their shit was just that, SHIT. Do a search on the corral about them, there's like a 89 page thread about them and their junk.

Isn't a capri just a re-badged Mustang? The last time I checked that little red bastard there, that's a Capri.

Yes it is, it's a rebadged mustang that shares no sheetmetal other than the roof and the doors. what's your point?

Did you not read what I said about Marty's hood? It is 100% verified from the man who fitted and painted it that it is a Harwood hood for an 87-93 Mustang that had the front portion cut to fit the Capri front bumper and grille.
