Default Nosecone?

Hi can anyone give me some dimensions for the nosecone?
width at front?
width at rear?
overal lenghth?
and also a sort of position dimension
front top edge of chassis to the back edge of the nosecone?
front top edge of chassis to front of nosecone?
height of top of nose cone from the chassis rails?
the reason i want these is i have a nosecone that i bought before i built my chassis its not intended for a haynes prob a locost one.
just been holding it up against the chassis and it looks like i may be able to use it.
will it matter if my nose fits further forward and i make the bonnet longer to suit? I personally think it would be ok
bear in mind my car is going to look different to most as i have a quantum extreme rear body that is going on .
any help with the above greatfully received thanks Ray

HI
If the nose is for a locust it will be 50mm too narrow. Its wouldn’t be too hard to cut and add 50mm down the middle. As for making the bonnet longer I think it would look a bit strange. The nose would come out to far from the front wheels.

Hi Frank yes I was originally planning on doing just that.
Does your nose cone fit under the front bottom chassis rail and bolt to it?
