Does it wiggle around but won't come out?? Heater hoses disconnected?
Not much wiggling going on, seems pretty solid to me.
Dude that waggy is way to nice to pirate--I'd park it around back and save it as a rainy day project.
I'm diggin that roll cage. Did you have the tubes made somewhere locally or is it a kit or what? I looked through the thread again to see if I missed it but I didn't see it. But then again I have trouble seeing things right in front of my face. xD
Noticed that I hadn't said much about the cage in this thread, That project was completed a bit before I decided to start a build thread. However I did take some pictures of the process. The A pillar hoop, grab handles, and gussets were purchased from Extreme Custom Fab. The dash bar, spreaders and the bar behind the seats came out of one of our scrap bins at work and I bent the two upper spreaders and the bar behind the seat with a cheapo HF kinker. The little tab in the center top of the cage was cut out of some scrap and will be used to mount my rearview mirror so when the windshield is down I can still see behind me. All the floor supports were made out of 3/16 scrap as well. Kinda funny looking back at these pics now, this is going back a bit.
Attempting to get the A pillar hoop aligned correctly, I used a chop saw to do all my copes so this was a bit tricky. The measurement from the B pillar to the windshield on the passenger side was different than on the driver side so that didn't help either.
Here I have tacked the main components of the cage together and pulled the ratchet straps out as they were no longer needed for support.
Getting a visual reference of how the grab handles are going to look, this was taken before I coped them.
Grab handles and rear spreader tacked in place. The rear spreader bar was bent with a HF kinker, I was able to get those bends without kinking the pipe but much more of an angle and they surely would have kinked.
I put a gusset at all 4 inside corners of the cage.
Next it was time to replace the old mounting plates that were used on the stock roll bar, I went with 3/16 steel and had them cut out of some scrap laying around at work.
This is how I bent them. Clamped to table, marked, cut, and beat with a hammer. Once the angle was right I welded the seam back in and called it good.
