Hi Guys,

would any of the veterans here on the BB be able to shed some light on the differences between a Quad and S4 Hardtop if any?

there is a possibility that i will be producing a complete set of rubber seals for restoration, providing there is enough interest in doing so by anybody.

any help is greatly appreciated!!

i picked up a quad hardtop recently, i assume as it was a repaint as the undercoat was silver. so i have sacrificed my seals for tooling for the betterment of alfa kind. im really up the creek on this one if it all falls through.

I think 3 and 4 series hardtops are similar. I can verify seals part numbers by parts catalogues if you want.

My interest in seals depends on the pricing. I have Quad silver hardtop that I need to repaint in red.

For Spider 4 series, vehicle number 014416 (September/October of 1991) Alfa Romeo has been used new seals. But I think they are interchangeable with the previous S3/S4 seals as all hardware and hardtop are the same. Also latest ePer version provides part numbers for modified seals. So old and new parts should be interchangeable.

S3 seals and S4 seals up to vehicle number 014416 have the same part numbers

Thank you Max, this is helpful. simply needed some validation before taking the next step.

MOZZAFIATO,

I'd be interested, too.

I asked D-P the same question at a car show in Milan last year and they confirmed that they had none and no plans for replacing them.

MOZZAFIATO, count me for one set !

Thanks for your effort.

I have a top from a 1990 S3 if you need pictures or measurements.

A gentleman in the NYC area had two black hard tops for sale for $450. One was listed for an S4 and one for an earlier model. I can dig up his contact information if you are still interested.

Lambert, I just sold a nice green hardtop to mozzafiat. Didn't think you would be in the market for one so I never contacted you. Peter.

He read my message but hasn't answered. I can bring my S4 hardtop to you if necessary.

We can meet half way to arrange a transfer, thank you for offering to bring it down. where in CT are you? more importantly do you have a price in mind for the top?
