Hi, Does anyone have a guide to building the GRP rear end chassis parts? I saw a post on the haynes forum with a pdf guide but i cant register on there at the mo to get it.
Also is it possible to fit a GRP rear tub to the normal book spec rear tubes (RP1 & RP2)?
Cheers.

Depends which bodywork your going to have. The equinox bodywork is designed to be fitted with or without the top bent tubes in place. No modifications needed.

The Saturn one you can't have the bent tube and the rear frame needs modifying to fit.

Cheers appreciate the help. Im just trying to decide when to powder coat the chassis and weather its worth buying the body kit first and making sure everything fits. Dont want to have to change anything after powder coating obviously.

Welcome to the forum. :) :)

Ben has given you some great advice there. 8-)

I do have a Pdf file of the mods needed for the Saturn Rear end if you should need it.

To be honest with you, personally I would prefer to have a rear panel that fits over the book spec frame.

If you are unsure of any aspect of the Roadster bodywork available, I am sure that you will get great advice from the manufacturer you choose. :D
