Got the roll cage installed! My brother and I have been working on it for the last two days. Came out pretty good other than blowing through the sheet metal a few times. I'm gonna paint it and throw some POR-15 down on the floor pans tomorrow. Gotta figure out the carpet as well. Torque boxes will be a project for another day.

Looks good. Is that a prefab cage you put together or did you bend it all yourself??

It's a prefab. Took a lot of grinding and cutting to make it fit right. Bought it off of American Muscle. Not too bad for a couple of guys that have never done one. We ground down the welds on the cage for a cleaner look and used a MIG. That completely breaks the rules for pretty much any type of sanctioned racing but I don't really care. I'll never do any of that with it anyway. I'm really happy with it. It wasn't nearly as hard as I thought it would be. Kind of fun actually!
