    Yeah! The new tubing bender is muy beuno. The roll cage kit we had was some Jbugs junk. We’re using pieces, but decided to build a nice tight b-pilar hoop.

    Because Mike has a “long ranger” gas tank we had to  move the bottom of the B pilars forward (they are best welded to the torsion housing) to the pan tube. I assume we’ll do some triangulation with 1″ tube later once we figure out the shock mounts.

    The A pilars were strait, we bent them out for more knee room.

    C pilar and upper beam support next.

    Had this Green 67 all ready to go, then dumb-ass Chris pushed baja Mike’s shell into it.

    I spent all morning polishing it. Looking better than before.

    Progress over the weekend! Looks like Franz bent up a dash bar yesterday. E6A8A6AF-BC99-401D-9CED-2CC5F021B2FD241350D5-DA8D-43D7-933A-2384E57FCC54

    I finished fitting the rear down hoop and got the tranny horn supports fabed and tacked in on Sat. 1632A6F9-8E82-4ABD-9117-7DE6C881967A7E38017C-EB78-498D-A2CE-9494FC561806

    We also started playing with rear end travel and started thinking about shock mounts. 5CCAAC6A-69B6-4D02-AA92-832A92C84EE576F40946-0398-4E74-BCE5-3EEA59E9C587

    YEAH! class 5 cage. Having a hell of a good time. Pat did the hard part and figured out rear shock mounts, I made beam to A pilar bars, seat mount, and B pillar cross bar.
