you can buy a pre-cut and pre-bent homologated cage for about $500 free shipping.

well i moved to edmonton now so I'm doing the welding and bending at my old high school. im hoping supplies will cost me in and around the 2-300 hundred dollar range. what do you mean what specs??? (new to making cages) kinda found a custom cage online and it looked pretty killer so im using that template with a little extra stuff like seatbelt bar.

There are different required specs for most racing organisations. CARS for has their own specification a cage must be built to if running one if their events etc.

For street/track day use you probably dont need a cage but having said that you also won't need to meet any specific requirements.


Also, looks good Johnson. Why orange? Very late 90's GM haha

yes, and you can find specs in CARS book
basics: tubes have to be seamless and in certain diameter/thickness
but then again if you're not planning on entering serious races
just forget about rules and have fun making da cage!

Have you thought about seam welding the chassis?

It's when the panels inside of the car that have been spot welded are welded shut at the seam.
Stitch welding ( is a better option as it gives stiffness but required flexibility to the chassis.



I wouldn't recommend either if this thing is gonna be daily'ed as doing any body or frame work in case of damage are a pain in the ***

Why primer before the wrap? People put vinyl on their paint all the time.

For my first wrap, alone, didn't do too bad of a job but there are a few bubbles. Vinyl tore a bit on the front corner when I was putting the trunk on, kind of pissed off but it was pretty cheap @ $70 for the 4x5' sheet.

Is it just aesthetics or does it function like a normal headlight? Do you have the output beam pattern?

Did an 05 center console swap into my 02 bugeye over the weekend.
Got all the parts from Aldergrove Auto Wreckers for $100 cash (wicked deal).
Spent an hour ripping it out of the donor vehicle.
Then another hour or so ripping out the old console and putting the 05s in.

I'm sure you guys all know what an 05 center console look like, so no need for pictures :P

Nah

I just grabbed a 06 TR radio bezel and be done with it.

Having climate control and digital HVAC is great, but it's not worth the exponential amount of work involved
