I'm 90% certain I will delete them on my cage. I rarely run doors, but I'm not convinced they will not impede me getting in and out of my rig. With my Corbeau seats, that is already a challenge.

that said....after the cage, I will start looking into replacing my dash and installing a quick release steering wheel. Maybe once that is done, then I will look into adding them back.

Hopefully Danno and I can get some pics in the next couple of weeks as we build em......

I don't look for problems....They find me.

Yep. Weighing my options at this time while I get things developed. I did a bunch of research & it seriously just looks like one hell of a coincidence. They purchased their domain before me, I started Facebook before them. They are way bigger & had a booth at SEMA. Sucks, but I'd rather have a unique name. Already had a bunch of people thinking I was them on Facebook.

Well ain't that a kick in the face...

Started on my cage Tuesday night. Progress is slow, but everything is lining up perfectly. I learned a lot doing my friends cage this weekend. Made some tweaks to the design to make notching a little easier. Bendtech's notching templates are priceless!!!! Here is where I sat last night. I'm hoping to get the B pillars, the remaining overhead bars & the lower dash bar in tonight & get all that tacked into place. Then I can start getting the seats located. On a depressing note, the upper dash bar fell out & smashed my windshield.

Going to fit my soft top back up to it. I took measurements for the bow pick up points before disassembly. I may have to modify the front latches to clear the upper windshield bar, but that should be it.

I'm loving those fastback-styled rear tubes.

Made some good progress last night! Got almost as far as I wanted to, but forgot to print the notching templates for the B pillar & I wasn't going to even attempt it without them. Not going to **** up a piece, not after I've come this far.

Here is where she sat last night when I left. Tonight's agenda is to get the B pillars in, the lower door bars, & then start on getting the seats mounted.
