lightweight doors

adam,
been advised that these no good for security- you can put your foot through them apparently
enquiring about lexan windows

re: rollcage, perhaps do what i did and get danny to build you a basic structure, to which you can add all you fancy bracing as and when funds allow?
i went for a basic cage, but still constructed from cro-moly steel and tig-welded for strength and lightness.

installed for £2100 inc vat

apologies for my general crapness

the request for pics is foundering on the shoals of being nocturnal, the rocks of having no camera and the sand bar of short daylight hours

promise to get me shite together asap

ok guys, apologies for taking so long

RB have sent me some pics, but due to my appalling shiteness i can't even see them, let alone put them up

i can e-mail them to anyone less retarded than me who could post them?
(adam?)

but a warning **this car is for driving, not posing**

(so it's a bit mucky, but that's the way i like it cos it draws less attention)

don't expect a trailer queen.....!

Have you checked your helmet for clearance on the roof bars as your cage looks quite low and the seat quite high. We ended up making some one off mounts to get the seat right on the floor.

Our cage is quite a bit higher in the car than yours and we still had to lower the seat considerably to stop the drivers helmet from hitting the side bars.

David,

Good point you make.

The seat rails are mounted very close to the floor but the seat is also at it's highest setting.

I have not seen the car in the flesh so am going by the pictures, but have emphasised to Danny that I am 6 ft tall and need the seat as low as possible.

Cheers

Hugh

Hugh...

I notice in that pic that all the metal work from inside the rear 1/4's is gone. Does anyone know if this offers any structural strength, or should it just be chopped out?

Adam,

I do not know the answer to your question, but I have confidence in Danny.

I have given the outline specification to remove all unnecessary weight so I guess that fits in with the general specification.

I can see where you might think it is a step too far though.

Cheers

Hugh

Would have thought the cage would have more than made up for the loss of those?
Maybe be wrong though.
Looking great guys.

It looks like it wont be a problem as you say when the seat is leant back abit.

With your cage I sure you will have no issues removing the inner quarters, how about removing the original front seat mount and rear parcel shelf too (if they aren't already gone).

We have removed all parcel shelf and hinge work that supports the boot, it weighs a huge amount. The boot is now mounted on pins. Then the standard lock panel can also be removed from the rear panel. I'll see if I can find some pics to show what I mean.
