Roll Cage Fitting

My goodness this has definitely been the most stressful part of the build – if anyone attempts to build one of these cars get a manufactured roll cage and their fitting kit and don’t try and be clever and use 5mm plate to bolt the feet to!

The roll cage is now in, using 5mm steel plate was always overkill but to be honest after needing £50 of Cobalt drills to drill the 16 holes required and around 8 hours of drilling time I would not recommend it. Going through a brake line to the o/s/r wheel didn’t lighten the mood much either.

So its in and big thanks to my Dad and brother Nick for their help and enormous thanks to my wife who put up with a grumpy man coming back from the workshop on more than one occasion!

The harness hooks are now in too, and the handbrake is re-fitted and adjusted up as per regs.
