Cage is painted and installed. I'll post a pic later.

Off to the funeral home.

Cage and driver's seat in final. Check.


I also added a middle grab handle to the cage. Too often I have held onto the cage which is not too good for the fingers if you go over.

excellent idea on the center grab handle. we are doing that with the door bars for mine. wanted a handle to grab instead of cage to save your hands/fingers

Does the seat stick outside the body up on the top? Or is that just how it looks from that angle?

No, it's inside. I actually had the soft door on in last night & sat inside & I did feel it was tighter to the door than the old seat but the seat latch didn't rub my side at all. It was hard to decided where to mount the seats L-R so I tried to center it up with the steering wheel.

I started the engine & went vroom vroom last night & it felt good.

It looks like the windshield will be one of the last things to go on. I'm glad you cherished my hard labors and saved them for last.

Seats looks really comfortable. While I think double harnesses are great for personal protection I have heard comments that they were pretty restrictive when it came to general trail riding. In general because they don't have the self retracting roller at the attachment point. Do these have it or is it a fixed mount?
If it's fixed are you going to put in a secondary belt system?

Center grab bar: Nice idea. I assume you'll move the radio back further as I remember it being up close to the windshield. Or was it farther back than I remember?

You going to wait till you scratch the tubes before you paint them black?
