    thanks, yea chunky little cage, all the bars are very short which is great for stiffness and weight, the rules dictate a very substantial cage for tarmac rallying so every bar I added was mandatory with the exception of the small brace bar between the two vertical windscreen pillars and the front leg that connects to the chassis.


    I though a 105 alfa coupe was a tight fit for a cage!, but this was a real challenge, particularly with the fiberglass vs welding factor

    Yep it certainly looked like a tricky job, you were welding in some very tight spaces there!

    Norm, I've been with the other half for just over 24 years and we've still not got married. More chance of me learning to weld than getting hitched!
