I am doing up (full restoration) a 1969 Rally 180 and would like to know if anyone can tell me if the cowls for a Rally and a Super are different or interchangable?

Thanks for any help.

Thanks Rob, someone told me that because my cowls appear to be different sizes that they could be incorrect but I feel it is more because they are bent out of shape. Did some research on replacements and its pretty clear when you see the options isn't it. May need to get the left hand side replaced.

If I have to replace can anyone point me to a good source of replacement cowls, either originals (preferably) or very very very good reproductions?

If you don't mind me asking Capsurfer, what did he charge you in shipping for the panels? Looks like a great project!

I'll have to get back to you for that answer, I honestly don't know. We brought a whole bunch of parts in with the one shipment and I am yet to even see the invoice. The freight will be across a lot of parts though.
