are you making a new loom up? or just shrunk the existing one? what did you do with the wiring that runs to the rear speakers with the round connector? i noticed this connector feeds to the pass. side rear light and from there i'm not sure, might disassemble the wire and trace it back to wherever it goes

Looks really good, unsure on the bulb holder etc, ha ha.

Whats the difference between a show cage and a normal one, i take it a show cage is made of softer material and is just there to look good, surely it should add some strentgh?

Carl

Basicly yes and its not close to the shell like a proper cage would be, but like you say in could be better the not having anything!

I have just un-taped the existing loom and cutting out and shortening wires. yes the rear speaker wires run all the way round the rear across the back with the rear light wires.

out of interest do you know where they run to? do they actually feed off the lights for anything or do the wires just run parallel with these, then right back around to the right side .. maybe even further?

does your boot lock still function manually? i'm sure i've had to leave a little bit of a lip there to avoid cutting into something that was required for the boot mechanism

Carl! I was enjoying this thread until you put a show cage in Sad

So the car is not going to be a track car then? Unsure Will it not fail an MOT now with the removal of the reverse light and fog light? Dunno

I think it would be a shame not to do this as a track car, has to be standard or track orientated Smile

He's only taken one side out, the MOT only requires one rear fog light and one rear reverse light Smile

Just to get this clear this cage is not a show cage as in a Dimma type dummy cage, it is a 1mm think steel cage and is strong, its just not a full on cage as in the mounting points etc may not be totally right.

The point of this car is to have a fast road car like you have got if you buy an Elise or something simular.

It's ok, probably best to have a smoke outside the car though
