Currently building my cage

Postby Lee » Wed Dec 19, 2012 1:34 am

Car is an e30 M3 with S14. To be used for Histopric Racing. Total spent time will be 8 days of work. 3 of those days will be spent on tiny details. ;-)

been following this build closely, stunning work Lee. Is the s14 stock? Does the cage need to be certified? Assuming most your local clubs use rules pretty similar to SCCA for cage requirements.

Looks good. Makes me really want to learn how to weld.

Off topic question... Why do I see a whole huge wall full of bald used tires in the one pic?
