    My mate has done this conversion, he sold the car but there are a few pics still online. He cut up the S14a wing, mated it to the front half of an S15 wing, welded them and they bolted right in (except for the forwardmost mounting point which had to be fabricated). The S15 bonnet also bolts right in without any modification, provided that your wings are straight.

    Here's a pic of the S15 bonnet with S14a wings, notice that the wings are a bit too wide.





    Then he cut up the OEM wing and mated it to the front half of an S15 wing. The weld is clearly visible in some pics.











    Then the wings were painted with some basecoat primer.





    Almost there!





    As you can see, the gaps between the panels are even. With a lick of paint you could think that it left the factory this way (in fact the S15 is nothing more than a facelifted S14 with some new parts underneath, but that's another story).

    But then the car was sold, so we'll have to wait for the new owner to finish the job and take some pics.

    Hope this helps!
