Thank goodness I could mount the posts a little inwards on the CRC thus providing me the ability to drill holes in the outermost roof area.
That's the same problem I had with mounting the Protoform Sophia on my SpeedMerchant chassis. The posts go through the side windows! Looks like heck.

One possible problem with the SP body is that the rear wheel arches look a bit narrow, so the rear tires can rub on their inside edge. The Protoform Mulsanne has the same problem. Fortunately, one minute with a hacksaw blade and a tire truer is all that's needed to remove the offending area from the tire/wheel. The narrower tire doesn't seem to hurt the handling at all.
