I have now got most of my chassis tacked in place with just the rear end to do and i really like the look of the Triton body kit.Can anyone tell me what alterations need to be made to the origional design to be able to fit this kit.

i can send some pics of my rear end (ooeerr ) as i have used the Triton bodywork , also in a thread that Adrian Reeve created there are some good photo,s of how he did his, i,ll find the thread & post the title on here,(sorry can,t do a linky) have a look at it, I basically did as Adrian did to his chassis.

the thread that Adrian posted pics of his chassis is titled
"Handyandy, the pics you were after"

its in the chassis section on third page about half way down.

as for how to do it............

basically you don,t need the bottom curved rails that form the rear tub frame, or the top frame either.
but you do need a tube, as like RP1 without the curved bits,( i used 25mm box steel ) to create the rear lower support frame for the fuel tank & for the D13,s to attach to.

maybe this explains what you don,t need when using the Triton rear tub......

RP1 & RP2
RP3,s
CP9,s

hope this helps a little.
cheers

Thanks for the quick reply Andy the pics are really helpful.Do you still build out the same distance as you would with RP1 and how far in on RS14 before you build out.

cheers Calvin

to be totally honest i can,t remember but will check for you tomorrow( as my chassis isn,t at my home).
but heres what i actually did.......

RS14 is as per book spec
i placed the tub onto the chassis & worked in effect from the position of the inner lower ledge of the tub, it is at a slight angle but the lengths of D13,s is also as per book spec so i suppose it is the same measurement backwards as per original design, tho i can confirm this tomorrow with photos if you wish?

also it was easier for me as i had the tub already.
if you wish to speak on phone then PM your landline & can discuss in more detail if needed.
cheers
andy
