Default Samurai Cage Build

My dad finally decided to start building the cage for his Samurai and he's not a huge fan of the computer so I'll handle this part of it for him. Heres a few to start it off.









Mom likes too keep an eye on us.

Every time I look at the side view I see the garage door rail in the background as part of the cage. Also looks like Mom is chewing him out.
