Default Wrx GC8 Brighton swap roll cage progress

I have had this car in progress stages for a while and wanted it to come out of hiding. I had a 1997 brighton and we had a rolled 2002 wrx. The entire wrx drivetrain and all went into the brighton. Got a 18g and an APS top mount intercooler. Thinking longterm I got a phat roll cage at Phat Jeeps. This car had been a working progress. I want everything to be perfect before I think of driving it. I just wanted to show the community a wrx gc8 swap that runs and a phat roll cage. Thanks for looking.

I'm always impressed with the logical thinking applied by the offroad community. Lord knows they spend alot more time on the roof than most tarmac bound vehicles do......

We haven't seen any pics of the anchor points in the floorpan. I don't mind the extra bolted points higher up on the chassis.....

Sorry for the slow feedback internets been down. Yea this guy also builds rock buggys to clear 40 foot gaps and most the time the people roll.

Its secure along the bottom as well. There is a lower bar behind the seat and two lower bars along the passenger and driver door, that connects the two front a bars. Pics are worth more they will be up within the week. Thanks for the feedback its been a long good project I look foward to finishing soon.

What hood and front bumper are you using? Sick cage too! Did you have to delete the back seats? Do you think you could keep them with a cage? Thanks
