HI

Is it possible to fit a series 1 nose on a series 2 car?
Lots of very hard work for not much gain or easy as you like?

Thanks

New exhaust "straight through" - good sound!

There are pictures of both vehicles in the Bagheera Book and you should be able to get some idea from that. Not something I had thought of doing. All my Bagheeras have been S2.  Geographically, where are you? I have a spare S2 nose cone you could try (assuming you have an S1 to try it on!) I am in Surrey, England.

But why would you want to fit an S2 nose? There are those who believe that the S1 is far better looking than the S2 (I don't agree with them but its a free world!). Andy

Thanks for the reply Andy, but as my query says, it is about fitting s1 pn s2?
Probably it is a chore.

The swage line which runs down the side of the cars is different.  It's higher up on the series 1 and wouldn't line up with the groove in the Series 2 door and rear wing.  The Series 2 arches have a return lip on them too, so the front and rear arches would look slightly miss-matched.

Best plan would be to buy a Series 1 car as well - collect the set.  Grin
