It is surprising how little of a coupe's structure Recon needs to build a fastback. This is all that was left of our coupe by the second day-basically, the firewall, inner quarter-panel supports, trunk floor, A-pillars, and half of the roof extensions. Because of damage to the front framerails near the shock towers, Recon owner Ray Carmody decided to replace them with new ones. If you are considering tackling this job, you can reuse the coupe doors and taillight panel. Everything else aft of the doors must go.
