I started on knocking out all the other required gussets after that, which were much easier with just the simple Taco design.






and then knocked out additional gussets that aren't required but are a plus to the cage build.


A pillar





The A pillar bars are very close to the body and welded to the frame in a few spots so the gussets had to be small to fit in the tight area.


B pillar


I think these turned out alright. I kinda figured out proper MIG settings to weld the 18ga to the .095 tubing to get the weld to sit a little flatter.






and somewhere between all of that I made the harness bars.


I went back and forth on design for these and made a couple of different types.





but ended up going with the normal split harness bar style welded between the X in the Main Hoop

Patched the sunroof hole with some sheet metal






It's a little rough and could use some filler and blocking if I ever paint the car, but for now it's good.



Then right after patching it and welding it back on.. I cut a large hole in it for the roof vent.


and a bunch of little stuff happened but next thing I decided to photograph was after painting the cage.





It came out pretty poorly, and was a nightmare to do. I think if I do it again it will be brush on paint haha.


I've got a lot more pictures to do through to get the rest of it on here, but that's the end of the cage work. The rest was rebuilding the engine and getting the car put back together.

You don't want to brush it on. Trust me LOL

I paid $400 for inside and out, single coat 1 color on my last one. So worth it.
