    Default Where can i get a new roof for a Capri convertible

    Hi guys,

    I recently purchased a 1990 Ford Capri 1.6 version. I need to buy a new hood for it. The actual frame is fine, so a hood is all i need.

    Does anybody know where I may get a good deal?. I am based in Melbourne city.

    Cheers

    Given I live in Adelaide I don't know specific ones but a google search of "motor trimmer melbourne" shows plenty. If you don't get any recommendations, you could start the ring-around

    There are new roofs advertised on ebay - a word of warning - there are two different sizes -THEY ARE NOT ALL THE SAME - get onto , i think, the american robbins site and i'm sure they have a way to check the difference.
    I think, from memory the year breakup is from 89-92 and 93-94.

    ps if you change the roof - change the cables as well at the same time

    Ebay USA, you get one landed for about $350, most Aust delivered ones have the later roof as there was a recall

    Thanks for your help guys. I'm going to try and fit the roof myself today. I doubt if i can do it though!!!!

    If any Capri enthusiast is bored today and knows how to do it just let me know. I will give you 100 bucks.

    Cheers

    I know it is late but the guy that I use for my roofing is in Sydney, it is advisable to replace your lower cables (tensioners) as well when you replace the roof.
