The new (used) coilovers where in. I just had to try.
This needs some mods.


small cage steps. The cage will be welded to the body, this way it can be separated from the pan.

Can I suggest starting the A-pillar bar farther forward? Having it that far back makes it kind of in the way getting in and out of the car. I just hate banging into my car with my feet!

Just my $.02

Hi Jason,

Any suggestion is welcome. I am building a cage similar to what Jim Smith made. (Cotsweld race cars) http://cotsweld.co.uk/album/cotsweld...age/index.html

Time to start on the fire wall, not my favorite job but it has to be done.

The fire wall will sit 6cm higher as original, so I cut 6cm of the top.


Because of the innerwings I have to make it wider as well


We're getting there.


Paul.

Love the new frame horns. That is what I am doing with my Manx STi because I have to clear the 930 transmission. Very nice build, thanks for the photo inspirations!

To follow the rules while building my cage I had to place the seats first.

First I slammed the original seatframe.


After that I mounted the 914 frame on top.


Next step was placing the seat.


Now the 914 and original frame can move foreward to have enough access to the rearseat.

Both seats are in. doesn't look like much. But this has cost me several hours. The original frames are slammed, narrowed, shortened and placed in a differend angle. just for the eye, I closed the side of the frames.

I've bin doing small stuff while I'm waiting for the cage material to come in. Today I have bin modeling the door gab. Due to an accident in the past, the door didn't line up like I want it to do.

Start up the grinder again.


After some hammering.
