Front discs and calipers for a mild brake upgrade, maybe radiator, front seats if you modify the subframes. Iíve heard you might be able to use the brake master cylinder and servo. Other than that, I canít think of anything else.

Youíre welcome, I believe that they also used Manta front lower wishbones ( larger ball joints ) modified to fit on the works rally Chevettes, maybe including HS/HSRís.
