    Default R8G Roof Siffener

    Hi All

    Just wanted to know a little more about how the R8G stiffened the upper windscreen cross member (designated (6) in the attached).

    Does anyone have a picture that they could post here of what the fabricated part looks like?

    like most upgrades that get passed on to the next model, did the R10 have it as standard?

    I think the simple answer is no, the R10 didn’t inherit those with the exception of #4 which was redesigned for the 10 anyhow.

    My 1135 doesn't have any because someone parked it on it's head so I'd also be interested if anyone has some or aftermarket parts

    My R1131 Caravelle has No.3. But there was rust under it. Not sure about the rest.

    When Graham Kelly bought the original R10 test measurement shell from Renault Australia I believe he fully welded every seam on the body prior to rallying it in Vic and S.A. The car would have weighed a good few more kg's than standard with the number of welding rods in it, shoulda been strong as buggery.....
