What's the white all about?!?

If your going to paint it at all, I'd do it in chrome, or the same colour as the car..

Nice looking cage mind :)

Dont look like it to me.

Keiths got a serious cage thats actually good for the car and his safety, not a dash dodger one with bolt on rear X sections.

If the cars dark, id do it white, it works on black cars, thats for sure.

Yep, same picture Keith posted when he advertised it on SOC, very nearly bought it, (though at the time didn't realise it was a dash dodger!).

I'm gonna be getting mine chromed when it's made, was gonna paint it kandy but after some people on DW pointed out theirs has been scratched due to putting tyres in the back, decided chrome would be more hard wearing.

Whatever colour you paint it, make sure you replace padding anywhere where it is possibly for you to come into contact with it. Un-protected tubing will smash un restrained legs/arms/head/helmet very quickly if you have an off. Every bit of padding will help.

On a black or dark grey car, it'll look best with black foam. White would get dirty quickly - and other colours fade with age. Black hides grubby foot marks best too.

Maybe leave the chromoly bars as they are, as they can look cool, but the rest of the cage should be padded for added safety.

5m of black roll cage foam padding (Also Red, White, Blue or Yellow are available): £78.30 + P&P. You'll need around 8 metres for your Cusco cage.

There’s also a clever method to putting foam on on without needing to cut, which we tell you when purchasing.

I went with body colour for my Cusco through-dash cage, looks very nice.
The door bars are polished.
All the work was done by Abbey and the dash penetrations still look perfect.

Dont drive without the padding,the chance to split your head in a crash is really big(I know it myself,had a 15cm long cut from a rollcage on my head after an assh*le in his BMW comes into my way where he doesn´t belong,so i crashed into his side some years ago) :(

^^^^^^ seconded^^^^

what's the point in having something to protect you is you are just going to brain yourself on it ?

and get the proper stuff too.. not exactly cheap but easy to get hold of.

hear what your saying regarding the padding.

Have padding on the other cage i have too, but its a thicker cladding type padding, and i find it gets in the way.

I'm thinking about just leaving it as is, but white cages do look good on dark cars, and i'm not really into bling chromey stuff
