Do you need them? Mine have been removed/fallen off/ otherwise missing on most of my Capris, and I seem to fare ok. Does anyone else have a similar experience?

Your best bet will probably be a junkyard or a parts car, www.car-part.com may help

There's a teal one driving around here that i see a few times a year. if I ever see it parked i'll shimmy under it. There are none in the salvage yards here. I'll check the link you sent but I'd still like to know what goes under there.

It might help you locate a vehicle at a junkyard, at the very least - you could then call the yard and see if they have what you need (even if the part isnt listed). It's a pretty handy site.

I think there are two splash guards that sit on the left & right side and a center one, that spans between the two. It reaches from the bottom of the rad support to about the back of the oil pan, if I remember right.

I'm not used to that, the yards here have NO idea which vehicles they have nor which parts. I have to continually drive over and walk around looking for certain cars. My Capri had the lower left stone shield and nothing else. I bought the rubber radiator air seal piece for under the bumper but don't see how it attaches. Some of my lower bumper is torn off. There's also no splash shield at the forward edge of engine (behind the right front wheel) so the crankshaft pulley and belts are exposed. I don't like that.  There's a lower right stone shield for sale on ebay, I may get that too. I've also seen one that seems to connect the bumper to the underside of the car.
