I do I use a single 35,000 btu torpedo. The shop is not insulated though so it still stays on the cool side. I tried two torpedo's once and the fumes really got to me.

2 years ago from LCR They are extremely difficult to find now. You might be able to get a set from someone who bought them when I did. Or you can go to ebay uk and find the fiberglass versions.

By the way for anyone who is interested here is the main rs conversion thread where all of us with the oem rs body panels have been meeting.

http://forums.focaljet.com/exterior-...iscussion.html

While I originally thought 20 of these could be built in the USA with the parts that were available (LCR and others) I now think it will be luck if around 10 are built close to oem spec.

"Parts are already being discontinued" - RS Grill, RS Side Skirts, RS Quarter Mouldings, etc.

A Used OEM RS Grill Recently Sold for $420 on Ebay UK!!!

That would be an interesting color scheme if you went with Yellow, Black and Blue ...

Nice fitting and thanks for the teaser photos and update. Good luck with the rest of the build.
