Cage looks great. What's the deal with the x on the boot floor? First time I've ever seen a cage with a x on the floor? do you reckon it's worked out cheaper than buying a ready made cage and getting it welded in? Certainly looks rigid

Lol ignor that it ties the rear to the main hoop I guess on mine I have bars running down the side as the 205 shape works like that. Very comprehensive looking cage

Note totally sure Michael ? ....but PhillipM who I wanted to do my cage ...Welds really close to the body work like All great cage / fabricators seem to !
I believe PhillipM had a nightmare welding in a off the shelf cage & he said never again ?

Would a welded in cage fit as close as a bespoke one ?...I'm no expert on cages m8 ...I'm sure someone who is will comment ...hopefully ...
All I know is I asked him to help keep me & my son alive & please make my chassis as stiff as poss Thumbs up

I cut my safety devices multipoint out of one shell and transferred it into mine it fits well but would say it's prob not as good as something that's custom built to the car. Took me 2 full weekends to remove and then reinstall including to front turrets. Cages are a massive job so can easily see where the money goes. + hopefully never need it but definately glad it's there.

Hopefully pop down to the spring action day and see yours in action again loving the progress

Made the pair of Electric door switches up in 1.5mm steel with 3holes so I can bolt them on to the Carbon flat door panels Twangy / Wayne's making me ....then they will be up out the way of the cage door braces but still reach the drivers door one when I'm harnessed in .
Made them on a angle facing down & inwards for easier access ...well that's the plan LOL

damn dude, this is AWESOME! I was quoted circa 1500 for a similar cage up here in the midlands, but without all the fancy gussetts etc so that sounds very good.

Looks like a fantastic job too!! We're moving house now so i cant spend any more on the car sadly, but I absolutely want to replicate the approach, looks fantastic.

Keep the pics coming!

I do have one concern with that cage - I can't see any spreader plates welded under the rear mounting points?

Other than that, looks just about overkill enough LOL

Holes have been made & the tube dropped through So say Phil ?.....not looked yet I'm trusting him as he does lots of hot rods & top end Rally cars for some well known teams ...still wish I could of used YOU Thumbs up



I wouldn't of believed the difference ...I'm shocked really am ...it was so much more twitchy & direct in a good way Thumbs up

I've primed the cage up today & was dreading it but a roll of brown paper & loads of masking tape sorted it ...
I used Valspar indoor / outdoor grey Primer from USA it was called Plasticote before its stocked via B&Q in every colour you can think of & is amazing quality & coverage best I've ever used by a mile ....

I'm thinking about just using Valspar /Satin Clear Sealer on top as the colour looks great & blends into the car rather than black that would be to overpowering with the amount of tube fitted ...

I put a 2000w blower ceramic heater inside the car for 30mins & degreased all the tubes before spraying ...it did wonders & is starting to look good ....£8.50 per can & 5 cans later just of primer though much cheaper than paying someone to spray it though ....LOL

half of it is battle scarred/gravel rashed, half the other half is bare and the rest has had a quick blast of primer over the welds, don't think you can make it much worse LOL
