This is how close to the pillar it will sit. With a black border around the lexan windows and the cage body coloured you won't be able to tell it is there Wink Stealthy cage FTW!

Massive thanks to Rich and Mabbo at Retro Performance! Thumbs up

It's getting there dude Smile This weekend was a big milestone and i can see an end to the cage now. By the time i get up there next the door bars and tieing the cage into the front beam and rear framehorns should be done. SO then i just sort the seat position for them to weld in and the window net Smile

Very successful day at Retro Performance and a massive thanks to Rich and Mabbo for their hard work!

Seat is in!

6 Points joining up to the frame horns. The cage is being fitted to allow the removal of the body from the floor pan to ease the prep and paint process.

Stunning fit against the B pillars

I did actually make car sounds whilst sat in the seat Wink

The new racecar - Page 2 533294_10151743410465291_453470208_n

So now the door bars have been measured up, as well as the window net mount positions. The rear seat back fixing point has been marked and measured for the brace bar and the harness bar location has been decided upon...we are on to a winner!!!

I am properly excited about race car again!
