I was hoping to get the older version and I did, since it doesnt have that additional bar that runs parallel to the A pilar.

Easier to get in and out..

2nd shipment of carbon finally arrived.
It feels paper thin. Somewhat too thin.





And a late Cyber Monday order finally arrived.

Cage looks pretty good, but I gotta ask where's the harness bar? There's a few other bars I would have expected to see too that are "missing"

Amazing work! Subscribed (of course).

May I ask from where you got those footrests?

Harness bar is the rear bar.




This is FIA certified cage.

I thought the same when I got it...
Looked like some gussets are missing and a vertical door bar is missing.

The guy welding it in (ex-prodrive tech) said that this is how they come.
Welding anything else on top of whats provided could void the certification.

The new 2014 version does have more bars.
