    i know what you mean about adding more cage once the body is off. i've got several more to add to mine at that stage too. it's looking good mate and you're picking the pace up again

    ^^^ cheers for comments guys !!
    .
    got the seat front mount done,
    .


    .
    put a seat support tube and floor support in the other side, ya never know it may have another seat at some point in its life and it makes it symmetrical ,
    .



    .
    i wasn't going to fit a shute to this car but one came up and i bought it, even if it's not used they do look kinda cool !
    i wanted to have it coming through the body, but obviously the body needs to lift off, so i decided i needed a tube within a tube arrangement, to make it removable, the only thing i could find that fit the bill was an old jack handle ! But it does the job !! lol .

    .
    ^^^^ gotta laff !!
    .
    also started on the shute bag mount.
    .

    you just know people will ask to borrow your jack handle at the track don't you . i do like the lateral thinking though, it's exactly the sort of thing i'd do.

    Really enjoying the build thread Mike. I come on here regularly to check out your progress, and you aren't hanging around! There must be something in the water on the other side of the Tamar.... ;-)
    Keep up the good work.
