L goes from daily driver to full out track car. Time to begin gutting and preparing for cage. Dry ice broken into little pieces then goo-gone gel to clean the glue residue that remains.

Cage build begins. Red 9 Fabrication in Dayton, KY. Car was there for 2-3 months during the winter. NASA approved cage with steering wheel detachable hub along with reinforcing the seat brackets because the sparco brackets are horrible quality. Probably the one thing I'd change is I would have wanted the A pillar bars closer to the firewall and a bar incorporated into the cage to replace the OEM dash bar.

After the cage was finished I wanted the cage painted white to match the exterior. Sure black would have been good but I love seeing track prepped cars all in white. Porsche Cup cars are always amazing and they come in white so I went with white for the cage color.
