The rear side trim panels and cant rails are different. I'm not sure about the rear seats. Otherwise it should be OK ; the only specification difference I'm aware of is that some early Eclats had no side vents in the dash.

The cant rails sit between the windows and headlining. They are made of fibreglass and covered in the trim material. There is also one that runs across the centre of the roof covering the steel anti-roll hoop, and on the Elite there's one that runs across the back of the roof adjacent to the interior window.

The cant rails on Eclat 79 are PVC ! The headlining is only bonded on the back surface. No glue on the inner side (passenger cabin side)
