Carrera folding radar arch

Post by TANGO » Tue Nov 15, 2016 6:07 pm

I know that a few people have hinged the Carrera RA as I have read about on here before, but I am unable to find the articles again. Can somebody please tell me how to access those threads or how to do it. Thanks. Geoff.

found this if it helps

Even if bolts removed and a hinge fitted though, the angles at the front of the arch mean it would foul the side windscreens when folded towards the stern but have a look, you may find a way.

The arch was an option on the Sprint (although every one I have seen has it), so removal shouldn?t mean any structural problems, may be the same with the Carrera.

I seem to remember on an older thread that somebody had fitted a folding arch (maybe on the Nene orWitham. If there is still a folding arch Carrera about I would very much like to visit to see it. Thanks, Geoof.
