Ah, rollcage going in - good work. I marvel at some of the stuff people do on here ...
slow process, but virtually got there putting the roll cage in. First time me and my mate have put one in a car, but he tells me its the last one he is gunna do, because even though it was a ' Pre-Cut ' kit, there were still a lot of modifications that had to be done for it to even fit. I feel like now we are on the home straight.

Well impressed, you n ur mate have got some proper fab skills there. Keep up the good work!
Seems to me like you have virtually got a 'spaceframe' S30.
Good work, is it going to have steel or frp panels?
Little bit more progress, moving along slowly, but quite happy with the way its all coming along.
Nice progress. Looks like a "custom cages" rollcage?
sorry for the late reply, yes it is a custom cages FIA Approved roll cage, suppose to be all pre-cut but took an immense amount of work to get it to fit !
Finally finished the shell, now I am starting to fit the S14 rear subframe
Amazing work it looks like. And you're not working in the biggest space I've ever seen either !!
Yes, amazing work. If I was going to roll-over in an S30 I would feel safe in that.
I don't really understand the reason for this tubular approach but as far as I can see you are saving a project.
You are a brave and gifted man taking this on.
completed fitting a S14 rear subframe, a lot of work involved within fabricating, but the rear subframe is now incorporated within the space frame of the car giving the car a lot more strength and hopefully stop a lot of flexing. Now moving forward fitting the dash and the s14 steering column giving me options on electrical items which should be cheaper and more reliable than the old electrics.
