Re: Swapping to convertible frame ?
Convertible cross members are almost 10" shorter than the coupes so if you swap try and get the cross member too or you'll be paying a premium for a new one.
The G force cross member from Summit was the best deal I found, not very much more than a factory unit but a LOT stouter. Must weigh about 20 pounds though.
