think its more cause the tubing is so thick , once its painted that could change the look of it but a cage is more function over form

suppose all comes down to what you want out a car.

Track days! :lol:

Thats some serious cage there!! nice one :)

Will it be color coded?

No, not CC'd. It'll be gun metal grey.

Its all regulation tubing, so has to be that thick. Old regs had thinner tubing.

Had no chance to really test it yet, but first impressions are very good. Greg, who fitted the cage was really exited about its handling.

I like it, I like it a lot, and I want one in my Lupo.. :shades:

Go for it!

More likely to pull the tyre off the rim at the moment!

But found a supplier of 13" slicks when tracking. Should be fun!

Grey. Everything goes with grey!

Thanks! There are some pictures of both of them together at E38 last year kicking around somewhere (Before the remodel and wheel change).

This car is sooooo dope. Gotta get those wheels for my car soon.

Again, thanks! If you like them go for it.

Update, cage has been painted (actually finished the day before E38)

just the one picture, but a good one! They were taken on Monday (15th) at the SoVAG meet.

Cliché I know but I built this car for me (7 yrs in the making so far). Its nice to know others like it, makes the (on going) hard work less depressing.

Still got a list a mile long of things to do before Im happy.

Sort that silly engine and you'r away ;)

Finnished yours yet? :lol:

Seriously though, Im having a really tough time of it at the moment as I cant deside on what I want to do.

Option 1: Bike bodies, cam, balanced fly etc. I like the idea of small capacity little engine with a high rev limit. Great for the track rubbish on the road (also comparitively cheap).

OR

Option 2: 1.8/2.0 16v conversion. Would need to be stock for a couple of years as install alone would kill me (the much more expensive option). Also engine height is a factor as on the 14s we're worried about sump clearance.

Amazing...!

She looks ready to fight...!

D.

Thanks. All bark no bite :lol:
