a few notes:
-www.swracecars.com
-the strut tower X isn't part of their "8" pt kit, i added that
-the rear down bars were too short, so i added the cross bar on the floor.
-estimated total weight of the all the parts is around 130 lbs :(
-yes i will be putting the interior pieces back in. if i leave them out that puts me in a prepared class for autox, no thanks!
-the trick to welding the top of the hoop is to tack it all in place and then walk it forward.....and then hop you have a sunroof you can weld through. ;)
-yes, the driver's side door bar interferes w/the door. why? because i wanted to give myself the most room possible, so i moved the floor mount out as far as i could w/o welding in the wiring harness.
-yes, i'll be painting the cage soon.

I like it a lot, nice work, makes me want to put one in, but I dont want the extra 130lbs, besides I dont think I'll be running under 11.50 by the time the truck comes to life.
