bodywork interchangability

Recommended Posts

My 1983 S3 turbo restoration project is missing its glass roof and rear hatch.  These may be hard to find, so i was wondering if a Stevens roof section would be the same fitting?   Also would the later hatch engine cover also fit.  I guess it is all about how much of the architecture was changed in the re design, ie if the fixing points for some items remianed the same?

I have a 2001 V8 and a 1986 that I am working on.  The 2001 will fit into the 1986 G car.  There is more curvature to the Steven's, so in the middle (left to right of the car) it is proud by an inch or so.  At the extreme ends (left and right of the middle) it is a little low....maybe 1/2 inch
