Hello,

You mentioned that the plastic is the same for de E3 than the E4...

Well, I thing you are wright, whit the only diference of the clear parts... Is that true...?

For me the E4 has a Scuare aluminium canoupy... Some E3 were retrofited whit this, while some erly E4 has the older... Is this correct...?

But you have only one type...

Thanks

Bye

Yes, the canopy is the only difference between the two kits. This kit has the early canopy with the curved top panes. If you have an aftermarket canopy you could easily convert this kit to an E-4.

I haven't got any references which state authoritatively whether the E-4 was ever equipped with the earlier canopy but I doubt it; the change was fairly definitive.
