Here are some progress pics, it has been a while but I think from here on out I should make steady progress. It will be out this summer.






And this is the tube holder I had to make in order for the close bends on the sides of the seat riser.

Little more progress. And decided to try tigging my first cage. I don't have a lot of experience with tig but use it when I can, feel free to let me know how I am doing. I know they are not perfect but with the gussets it will be stronger.

looking great Jay, you're making some good progress! Is it a pain having to unbolt the cage feet to get the nozzle in there or are you using a real narrow one?

I have only welded halfway around the footplates and I will finish welding all the way around when I pull the cage out. There are quite a few areas I cannot get to while it is in there but I wanted to get as much as i could before it comes out to minimize the legs moving and not lining up when I go to put it back in.


I need to get 5-point harnesses. Any suggestions on what and where to get them?

Also looking for feedback on anything I might be overlooking on the cage design.

I know I need to get some tabs for the 5-points and I am going to add gussets on the b-pillar and other areas.

Here is my list of things to do still so if I am forgetting something let me know.

1. Harness Bar
2. Gussets - B-pillar -
3. Bed rails
4. Harness Tabs
5.





Thinking of adding more bars like this. But not sure about the rear bars, which ones to go with( the horizontal or the diagonal ones).
