I did a search and found some info on doing a notchback to fastback rear clip swap. But I couldn't find a list of what all is needed to do the swap. I know there's the rear clip, tail lights, windows, inner window covers, engine vents, engine vent brackets, decklid, and fuel door assembly. Am I missing anything?

Primer is my favorite color...

You'll need the rear body wiring harness, too...

Well, I figured I could make do with the wiring harness on there now, as I plan to go with the 355 setup if I do this swap. Thanks for mentioning that, though.

Hey Adam,

Weve got the wiring harness too, just have to pull that off. When you come up, we'll let you raid whatever parts you want to go along with it. The car is heading to salvage when your finished picking it clean . Later man.

I meant the fake windows, not the door windows. Actually, the windows on the fastback are not fake

I don't remember if yours is an 88 or not but you will find that the 88 uses a different engine vent bracket that is nearly impossible to find, (not too many 88 GTs get parted out). If yours is an 88 you might have to make that piece.

And the trunk weather seal is ridiculously expensive to buy new, and it's hard to find a used one in good shape. Just two observations that I have made.
