I'm not really sure what I'm going to do with it yet. For now I've got some paint that's the same colour as the car. Just going to spray bomb it since I don't have time to properly paint it. I was kinda thinking gray, i like the look of when the inside is that flat gray colour. Plus I want to repaint the outside teal so it would go very well with that.

Wow nick. I hadn't seen the updated pics of your cage. Joe is doing a great job! Makes me extremely jelly . Really impressed with the way your car is coming along!

The really nice thing about having Joe do it, is we both have the same ideas when it comes to a cage. We've been pretty picky with how everything went together on it, and the dimensions. It's going together exactly how I had it visioned in my head and drawn out on paper. When it's finished and I take the car somewhere I hope when others look at the cage they will be able to see and appreciate the way it is.

One of these days, when it's not all banged up and nice looking. When that happens there will be a short window of time in which a photo shoot can be done before it's banged up again lol.

I'm thinking either this winter, or I might wait till next winter to get it repainted and throw on some widebody parts.

LOL...I can only imagine. My buddy's Integra track car has door bars and a crazy Sparco seat...it's super complicated to get in and out of that car.

I had him position the bars low enough where my legs would fit between the wheel and the bars. I wanted them as high as possible btw so it's going to be a tight squeeze. I don't have a quick release either so it'll sure as hell make things interesting. I'm going to be picking the car up tonight, I can't wait.

Thanks man. I'm not a huge fan of Formula D tho. I hate their style and lines they take.

So far from what I heard from him.....it went pretty well. I'll need to post pics of what he was doing prior to them driving there on saturday. I managed to help him out by lending him my shop space and tools.

Did this for him before he left and he was super happy....lol

Big thanks for lending me a hand Rodney. There's no way in hell I would have gotten everything done in time if you hadn't helped me out. Heck I would probably still be trying to get the ball joints off lol.

I'll work on getting some pics up tonight, I've got well over 1000 photos to go through, along with videos. Until then, all I have are these two photos I found on Flickr from the event.

None actually. I ran the blue/green combo in the morning, then after lunch I switched over to running my Grey XXR all around. Neither set look bad at all, they both have half if not more life left in them, and they were used tires already to begin with. The track was really slick too, so that probably played a big roll in keeping my tires alive.

I forgot I took these photos and uploaded them to my photobucket already. Here are some completed pics of the cage. The paint isn't anything special, it was primed and then sprayed with a paint matched rattle can. I didn't buy enough paint so it's really thin in some spots and you can see the primer. Not a big deal tho, just need to get another can and go to town on it.



















Also I need to give a big thanks to Rodney for helping me out big time on Friday night. I had gotten the car back late on Thursday night and didn't have any time to work on it, so all I had was Friday to do the things I needed and Saturday morning as well. Rodney hit me up and let me come over to his shop on Friday night and gave me a hand with putting what interior that would fit back in, put on my new lower control arms, tension rods, rack eccentric spacers, remove the front swaybar (was hitting my oil pan and tires were rubbing at full lock) also did a "alignment" only adjusted the front toe using toe plates.

After several hours of work and being up until 1:30am I got everything finished on the car. The outcome was definitely worth it too. Added some serious angle and now my front wheels were rubbing on the frame rail. Luckly I bought some 17x7 since I was concerned I would run into this problem, went with a 205/40 BFG G-force tire. This luckly has enough clearance and took care of rubbing issues.

Note* I still have my 18x8.5 wheels on up front in these pics. My gold wheels are 18's and my gray ones are 17's for those of you wondering.



I found it really cool that at full lock you can see the lower control arms and tension rods.



Put the new harness in the car for the passenger side also. Now whenever someone rides along while drifting they can feel safe.





Saturday morning I woke up at 8 and went on a tire mounting mission. I only had 2 wheels that had tires mounted on them ready for sliding and I was concerned I would need more given I destroyed 4 tires at Proving Grounds. So I took a set of wheels and spare tires with me to get them mounted. I swear every tire shop that day had a thing against me. Everyone I went to said they were too busy to mount them and I needed them done by 1pm at the latest. Finally after going to several shops I found one that was able to do it for me. This set me back 3 hours and now it was 11 and I still needed to figure out how and where I was going to mount my fire extinguisher.

Thinking really hard I remembered seeing a photo in a magazine where someone had mounted one and I though was kind of neat. Formula D Pro/Am rules require a 5lb bottle, and there wasn't much of a good place to put it, but I found one.

It was 2:45 by the time I got around to getting the extinguisher mounted in the car, Not having enough time to mess around with properly measuring the mounting plate so it would be perfectly straight I eye balled a spot and got to drilling. I swear there was an angle watching me do this as I missed drilling into my frame rails by a half inch and also missed drilling into fuel/brake lines by a half inch as well. Anyway, here's where I put it.





You can't really tell by just looking at photos, but the seat actually clears it and can slide all the way forward, plus with it all the way back it's still out of the way of where you put your feet and isn't uncomfortable at all.

Again I would like to thank everyone that helped me out. Joe Rosenberg (street racer Joe) from 515 Customs for making such a beautiful and well designed cage, Rodney for lending me a hand at his shop, also my beautiful girlfriend Becca for helping me put everything together over the weekend.
