I was sitting here reading this thinking oh no not again with the wheel thing..... I'm like Russ is fixing to blast off when he see the pics.

That was a good one, I'm really interested to see your ET's once you get them one.

Yes I have...saw them tonight. Tried to mount them, but my locks won't fit. I'm going to try to find the right ones in the morning.

I couldn't find any lugs locally to fit on the new wheels, so I'll just order some next week. It's a shame too, cause I really wanted to head out to the track today.

Owen has some new stronger studs to install on the rear wheels anyway. We'll ordering new locks to fit them.

Mlee showed some pics of my car torn apart on the last page. My car was at ARD this past week getting a custom roll cage installed. Many of the cages out there are good enough to pass tech, but are simply bolted to sheet metal. This obviously isn't going to be strong enough in a roll. Owen welded my cage directly to the frame, and then had it wrapped in leather to match the interior. The center bar is removable so I don't completely lose the back seat. The back seat frame has also been modified to fit the new cage. I also purchased an RCI Racing 5 point cam harness. Everything turned out amazing...I'll post some pics soon.

Nice job R !

Glad to see that you are having it done right. A roll cage is not to be taken lightly. Safety First Just remember that any bar within 1' of your head (and passengers head) has SFI approved padding (or something you can wrap around what you presently have).

Knocking your head against a rollcage feels like being hit with a sledgehammer. :(

Here are some pics of the new roll cage and harness. The fit and finish are great, and they even matched the interior's orange stitching.
