The rears are the same for all Elans. The fronts might have changed in later years to the top entry port.

Have they been replated, or painted?

S1s originally had type 12 calipers at the front but it's a common upgrade to upgrade to type 14 (which I assume these are).

There's a couple of variants of type 14 with the hose being top-entry or side-entry so you might have to rearrange the hoses.

Edit: there's a few earlier threads on this, eg
