I thought the rear shelf tub and the rear cowling were all the same from S2 on...not so? If you want to make it into a Duetto (S1), than that's a different story.

And HOW, oh how do you align an entire rear clip and hold it perfect while you weld?? Very interesting.


<EDIT> ......Went back to read first post. Ohh, you DO have Duetto shell pieces, VERY interesting project. In that case, yes, the rear shelf body opening and cowling area is completely different. I think a Duetto has a slight crown to the rear cowling, where an S2 is nearly flat. The top frame is different, the mounting is different, the door glass and windshield slope is different, the inner arches are different - it's a whole different potato!

Some pics I have, if these are any help.....


That center cowling panel behind the tub is not labeled in either of these parts diagrams, which makes me think no one has them...or, they never fail or get bent.

This is the rear cowling, or "hinge panel" on the S2 body. Completely different animal.

Thank you Vivace .

I hope that car will look nice on the end . With so many panels in storage I am happy to try something different . I will try to fit Twin Spark head on the 1600cc old block. So it will be combination of old and new .

I think that S3 windshield and Soft top will look good on Duetto .

Only thing that I can not add it hard top hooks .

I can live with out them

I hoe in a month car will be done .

Thank you all for following .

That first picture looks like the parts have been brazed. Are you welding the various parts or brazing?

Take a look at my garage - the previous owner did a full on conversion from a '86 Quad to a S1 (front end). For the rear, he converted the rear tail lights to a Giulietta SS... Full steel work and an absolutely solid, very clean job.

I have a lot of parts rear panels as well as back and front of the car and person that is doing welding job is making decision what will be the easiest option for him . Only part that I was looking for was one with licence plate and it was hard for me to find it that is why he used whole rear end .

Actually that's an S2 front clip on your '86. Regardless it looks great!
