    Pretty much, may be able to wiggle the body up a couple inches to weld the top of the cage and gussets. We’ve left some bars loose to accommodate.

    Door bars and shock mounts finalized today.

    I’m stoked with the look, fit, and feel of our cage. Ready to do more cars.

    Question: I would think those down bars wouldn’t do much in a drag race application (the only way I can view things.) Will there be other bars attached to the hoop off of the main hoop? Triangulation somewhere possibly? Maybe you’re not attaching it to the frame horns for the same reason I would attach a roll bar there.

    For room and shock mounts mostly. An offroad car has to be able to carry a spare tire, cooler, jack, equipment and parts.

    Most drag cars connect the B hoop to the frame horns just in front of the axles?

    Pat has pictures of all the stuff hes been doing back there. Bars that drop down the frame horns and another bar that triangulate into the torsion housing.

    Real nice Franz. Would you be able to bend an engine cage like the ‘Desert Digger 2’ that mooreparts used to sell? I just need the tubes bent, I can finish weld.  I have measurements if needed.

    Baja Mike and Pat gettin’ it on. I think we talked him into the roof scoop….going to look like hotwheels.

    Did a bunch of primary welding this morning. More to come.
