    Our member Mitch made a simple frame that he used for this exact task G28 Roadster on Streched MR2.
    He added a lot more metal work later on but this was the basic form.

    But what about the MR2?
    Do you by chance have the width of the frame side to side.
    Thanks

    I don't have it. Ask ItalianKnightRider he makes those and he has the dimentions. Or make a new Thread regarding those exact pictures and someone will finally share that info.

    There was nothing out there for my build that I could find for the MR2 and the g28. I used the support frames pictured above as a starting point and literally had to get underneath and piece in piece by piece additional supports. All of it I made removable except for the initial frames pictured above. Any thing more would make the body permanent and harder to work with in the future. But Unfortunately, I have no plans or blueprinting of what I did. It was trial and error, as many of these builds tend to start out as.
    Keep dreaming if you want to, I'm building mine!
