Question 128 4 door conversion to 2 door

Hi friends,

There is a series 1 Fiat 128 Berlina (4 door) for sale with 1300cc engine. I am thinking of converting it to a 128 Rally. So I need to make it a 2 door (by welding the rear doors shut). I have noticed that 128 Rally has thinner C-pillars and fixed rear windows. What I want to know is, whether the front doors of 4 door car is the same size as those of the 2 door car. Can someone please help me with this info?

Thank you very much

they are not. 2d doors are longer.

Re: 128 4 door conversion to 2 door

You'll need to channel both doors a few inches (cut a section out of the rear doors to widen the front ones), drill out the B pillar spot welds and move it back. Use what's left of the rear doors to make 3/4 panels from the new B pillar location to the rear arches. Polycarbonate windows for the new 3/4 and doors.

A good few days work if you have the skill and time to do it.
