Aluminum Honeycomb Sandwiches and Extrusions have been applied to a platform for convertibles. The platform, composed of a dashpanel and floor panels (honeycomb sandwiches) and a framework (extrusions), has a much more lightweight and rigid structure than other conventional convertible bodies-in-white. This improves remarkably vibrational behavior and handling characteristics, which deteriorate in a convertible, in the case of a prototype.
