Yep! It's a wonder I can even build a straight roll cage, isn't it?

Hey Sean another dumb question for ya, with the rear cage setup you intend for just 2 seats with storage and fuel cell in the back?

The vast majority of the time, yes. Gonna try and make it so there's still room for the seat for cruising and whatnot, but it's not a priority. If I end up wanting to be able to run it for dune rides or something I'll probably build a removeable rear section. For now I prefer the fastback look and there's minimal leg room with the harness mounts and diagonal bracing anyway, so I'm just building it how I want it to look

Thanks. Plenty more tube will be added, but haven't gotten that far yet. I was gonna work on it yesterday and tonight, but I'm currently on hangover day #2 thanks to 91k1500's bachelor party. Beer+Jager+Fireball+Strippers+Jorts=Pain.

I've been a little busy the past few weeks but finally put some more work into this tonight. The main portions of the cage are all in place now so the overall look is there:



Apparently I still like giving myself extra work because there are only 2 straight tubes and very few conventional notches in the whole mix
It'll still get more triangulation, harness bars, shock mounts, windshield stuff, etc, but that'll all come later. I'm just glad the main bits are there finally.
