Hi all I am new to the forum but i am currently also restoring a 71 Plus 2 .

I am about to buy a 1998 s1. My plan is to drive it on the road and modify for some track days bit by bit without taking up a permanant spot for a race car in my garage. I have other DD, so it is not a problem when it is being worked on.

I picked the S1 because it is around the 1600 LB mark and i am also getting a great deal.

My questions are: Is it an easy conversion for the front [lights area] and rear quarters to look like the S2 since I prefer this shape/look.

IS THERE A BODY KIT [track or other] that will enhance the look without doing an OEM conversion [if it is possible]
If so... cost ?

Also would the above add back the weight savings i have by getting the S1 and defeat the purpose

I have read that the S2 has a better suspension design. Is this easily upgraded ? Is $$$$ saved if the upgrade is done when upgrading my 4 corners for track.

What exactly is the difference ?
Cost to upgrade ?


I have alot more questions but i will not overwhelm the thread then i get ignored !!!!!!!!!!!!:shrug:


Thanks
Shane
