View Full Version : WTT my 07 Ss tail and CF cowl, for a firebolt tail complete

10-03-2008, 01:11 PM
Looking to trade(or buy if the price was right) my tail section/subframe from my 07 Ss, for a complete subframe from a R. Preferably black but would think about other colors.

I have the Iron machine grater eliminator as well as a carbon fiber cowl.

An R tailsection will not bolt right on an Ss and vice versa.

really? Why not? mounts are different from a regular S?
Thanks for the heads up BPG.
Can it be done with some mods?

You would have to fab the sub-frame a bit.

Ss is different than the S as far as the tail sections are concerned.

Hmm, I thought I read somewhere that you could swap a S and Ss tail. Oh well I guess I will try to locate the parts individually.
Thank BPG.

Thanks, but I finished that project a last summer!
If you are looking for a Ss tail for your firebolt be aware it will not bolt up. The top mounting points are different.
