Rick @ Downs had a Joe VanOverbeek 6" cowl hood on his capri. I ordered one from Joe a few years ago after talking to Rick. They are nice hoods. I will try to find Joe's phone#. I think your only other choice for a large cowl capri hood would be Glastek. They can graft a cowl onto one of their flat capri hoods.

While we're talking Capri body parts does anyone make a reproduction front nose for the Capri RS?
