    Cant wait to see some more progress.
    Yep similar idea, that was for Time Trial IIRC, + or - points.

    These get added or subtracted from the overall ratio

    Sorry about that Donny. I got your PM the other day but I was just waiting back for an email. I'm pretty certain you are talking about the "sail panels" and unfortunately both of mine have the same plastic tab thats snapped that allows them to pop out erery so often.
    You can get in touch with Luke from Lindsay, I think he had them in stock and they were not too expensive IIRC.

    Oh yeah, I remember seeing those. Thanks, yooper, for jogging my memory. I was imagining a totally new setup with tube frame type fabrication.

    *UPDATE* 12/15/2011

    Moved into the Roll Cage shop

    Removed all of the interior, the windshield and the back glass and everything else inside that would be in the way of the roll cage assembly.

    Today, they will start prepping the mounting points for the roll cage and bending bars !!!

    LOL,

    I just sent Joe an e-mail about a possible cage for my car, before I even bothered to do a search over here.

    Junior, Can you PM me your e-mail, I'd like to talk if possible.

    This would be would be awesome to have..

    When people got in they'd think, "uhh, this dude is serious".

    Say you get chosen for lunch taxi... you get squirrely and people start questioning your behavior, demanding to get out of the car, etc, you just say: "shutup and relax!, we have a rollcage."



    I wonder if you get a discount or dropped by the insurance company with this mod :alchy:
