Hi Andy,

Dave at work had the chassis modelled on the computer already but with the original rear end. We had never bothered updating it with the framework I made for the grp rear end.

He saw your picture and thought it was time he did it.

Cheers

Mark

am i right in thinking the long grp tube fits on the inside bottom lip of the tub and is affixed to it
im am trying to design a larger tank and would like the hassle free option of going grp

You dont need the round tubes on to fit the rear tub Baz just an extra 25mm box putting at the lower rear end of the chassis to fix the lower end of the tub to. There is a thread on here with dims and pics for it, cant remember where it is but a search will find it. Needs to be made a sticky please.

The rear tub is at 16 deg inwards for the lower rear end.

Hope that helps.......Andrew
