Hood dimensions?

Postby madzuki » Tue Apr 01, 2008 11:51 pm

Would someone be so kind as to measure the width and depth of the rear hood section please, and also the height of the side windows??

thanks

Could you just clarify which dimensions you need and I'll nip out with a tape measure.

thanks, I'm looking to find out how wide and deep the lift up rear hood is and how high the windows are. I'm probably going to have to use my Swift convertible through next winter again, just trying to find out if it's possible to scavenge some Cappo bits to make myself a hardtop. The general width dimensions, which Suzuki list for them, seem similar enough it just might be possible to reuse the rear window.

Ok I've taken a few rough measurements.

The side windows are approx 320mm at the front going down to approx 260mm by the time you get to the rear of them.

The rear hoop is approx 1300mm wide (the car being 1,395 mm wide overall) , 300mm high and 400mm deep (at its deepest point as it curves)

The saying goes nothing is impossible but the amount of work needed to do this conversion would be huge.

The other difficulties you will have include how to attach the roof mechanism

And the sloping shape of the rear of the Cappo

Thanks, it's really just the glass I'm thinking of reusing, don't want to do away with the existing hood arrangement. I had hoped the door seals may be the right lengths, or even slightly larger, but unfortunately not. Looks promising though, I'll need to see if I can get side by side with one, before I try and get hold of a rear mechanism.

thanks again
