RX hood on RXP
I know years ago Jerry had a write up on what needs to be done but cant find it. Does anyone have the details on what is needed to convert to the RX style hood (on a RXP).
Obviously need..GTI or RX hood , RX Liner , RX trim pieces by the side of the seat,Mirrors (optional) and the reverse handle.
Have to drill new holes for the hood bracket ?
How are the new trim pieces mounted to the hull ?

that's pretty much what i did to mine. the rxdi hood with the mirrors. it'll bolt right on, there is however a gap on each side of the hood if you decide to leave the stock rxp stuff on there.

i have one as well i am going to put on my new hull...
i like the sleeker look
may find its way to the existing one..the guages in my mirror is the big reason it isnt on yet..going to make pods that bolt where the mirrors went...its only time i cnat seem to come up with ..less time hanging out here and more time working...
i definately like the way it looks with the intake grills...over just the rx hood...i know about the gap problem. my thoughts on fixing that is to make a quick mold of the side plastics..make one out of fiberglass..and pull them in as needed to fill the gap.... or just..reshape them a little buy adding material to the new fiberglass sides...i would just add to the plastic but it wouldnt stick for long...
the coast guade requires mirors..i was going to use a stick on spot mirror in the foot well to sufice the po po ...i do tow the kids sometimes on a tube..i still need a spoter..but the want a worthless mirror as well ....
