You're going to cut out a perfectly good custom cages roll cage, and replace it with a bolt in job?! Seems a bizarre way aroud the problem. Surely it would be easier to find a professional welder, give him some money, and get him to sign something saying he installed it? All the MSA do is check the quality of the welds, and they may drill a small hole to check the thickness of the tubes.

Oh, and if you're complaining about the cost of racing already, I wouldn't bother going much further!


What qualifies a professional welder in the eyes of the MSA anyway? As far as I know they don't ask for a coding as such, so would a B-Tec, or City & Guilds, MOT/vehicle welding qualification carry enough weight to go through? I only ask as many motorsport firm seem to employ welders who although often perfectly good at what they do (myself included) don't actually have a recognised welding qualification.

It's a bolt in cage next time I can't justify spending over £600 when a bolt in
One will do the job

It's the usual vague legal wording of the person welding it must be 'competent', so if they have a crash and you end up in court it's a lot easier for the bloke who welded it to be able to produce a couple of structural tube certificates and say 'there you go' - MSA are just covering their arse and passing the buck...

Eddy here are the pics of the harness bar,





its was put where it is mainly because there was plates still there from Daves old cage, so thought it a good idea to make use of them.

been doing the wiring on it today and its a night mare as always, but its all done now and the car runs again, just got to tidy it all up;
