    won't work without alot of modification... body lines are all different

    the coupe is taller

    also hinges are completely different

    Well, the front cowl sides and gas tank are interchangeable from coupe to roadster, but everything else is a different measurement. The roadster is narrower, shorter, thinner, and has different beads on the sides. You could bolt a roadster cowl band (the official name of that part) to your cowl sides, but the coupe doors will be way off.

    You may be best just cutting down the coupe windshield posts to fit some roadster posts on there. You will probably need to modify a roadster windshield frame to work as well (maybe widen it?).
