I think some of the later SC's and early Carrera's have the same rear quarter panels but I'm not sure. Here is a pic of my 1986 Carrera with Group 4 Wheels Campagnolo replicas (7" front, 225/50 & 8"...

Koizumi, it must be a combination of the contrasting color and the camera angle because the fit on the ducktail is actually really bad. The matte wrap and the color helps to keep your eye from...

Thanks Chris! Also, would a lack of ground on the alternator explain why I was getting +12V from the blue wire when I took out the bulb?
