may I ask your opinions on this............

Spud & I have discussed in the past whether a GRP top panel for the rear tub would be a good addition to the GRP parts that Saturn supply........

so what are your thoughts folks? good idea or not ?

sorry spud..... I might be adding to our workload in time tho...

cheers
andy

Thumbs up Rear tub top panel

I expect many folk building the Roadster have given some thought as to how they might tackle the task of the boot lid ( So to speak )

You can include me as one of those

A nice little Sunday project for you both

Everyone is adding to our workload Andy, but i'm not complaining.

The grp panel to fit inside the real panel needs extra thought as builds vary depending on backstays, grp or ali tub and differences in dimensions. But i'm sure it will come.

Now off out for drinks and a band........

Easy answer to that question is yes but don't bother trying to please everyone as we all do things different...Just make it to suit how you would build the car as a kit car firm and also make it fit the rear tub spotty dog like...
Another idea for you is:
GRP trans tunnel cover with fag holding tray and room for a can of red bull

Another one:
Full boot under tray/diffuser but same as boot lid(make it fit the grp tub)

I'll keep that lanky one busy hahahahahahahahahahaha
