Roll cage

I've got a 280z 2+2, a US import and quite modified. Along with a number of other things I'm looking to do is fit a rear roll cage - anyone know makes them - or could do?

Never heard of a 2+2 cage. You may have to build your own or have one custom made as I did.

I want a cage but gave up as I seem to have a strange seat belt real right where the base would mount

depending on how quickly you need it, I may be able to help with a custom cage and not as expensive as you would think.

Happy to discuss Ben 07766547871

A 280z 2+2 must be a pretty rare thing on our shores. I doubt you'll find anything off the shelf, the safety devices stuff is more for the models that were used in motorsport.

Sounds good Ben and will catch up with you soon. Nothing urgent with the cage - I've got many other things to keep me busy with the car and otherwise

Thanks, mine wasn't a question but a statement. Yours is not alone in the south west.
