    Does anyone have body dimensions data for this vehicle?

    Yeah, thanks 'Flo.

    Nauli thanks for the link. I'm doing some body repairs and I was more looking for something a panel beater might use.

    I'm imagining such dimensions would be given in one of the "official" Renault workshop manuals.

    I have the 17 Body manual. In French but will probably have what you want. What are you actually after?

    Thanks Sunny,

    Engine compartment, chassis rails, diagonals, that sort've stuff. Some bits have been put on cock-eyed and I'm trying to sort out why

    The French I can live with. I'm savvy enough to be able to translate numbers. The comma rather than a decimal point no longer fools me...

    I'll have a look today and photo copy what I think and then you can let me know if there is more that you need. I had a real $ well EUR battle with someone on ebay for this manual. I offered to photo copy it for him but never got a reply. I have a 17G targa (1327) that is very rusty and I thought I needed it for fixing that. Hmm another gunna if I live long enough. Might need to PM me your email address as that is an easier way to send pages of stuff.

    I have scanned 7 pages if you need more let me know. The rest don't have dimentions for front area just where to take out spot welds etc to replace the various bits that make up the body/chassis etc. But there are measurements for doors, boot spaces etc if you need.
