    New fuel cell mounting, the old shell has been beat on for the past 15 plus years and the cage wasnt exactly what I wanted. The fixed roof chassis is something I've been looking for, for a while now.

    Swapped cars on the lift. Pulled motor to start stripping the car.

    I did it all 4 years and mostly as a 1 man team so 1 car by hand every year. That's the only reason I was comfortable building the roll cage in the Supra. Baja was a blast though! This car is gonna get a cbr600 at some point and slicks.

    Good eyes, it is. It's the one I built my senior year. And you say shelf but it's just 4 ratchet straps to the rafters haha

    I've been looking for a new welding helmet and this definitely fits the bill. Ordered from Canadia with only $19 shipping....

    Haha yeah I spent a lot of effort trying to get everything as close to the body as possible, just makes it hard to weld! I'll let you know when I get the cage wrapped up and the hangar cleaned up a little more (kinda crowded with two cars and the miata in it) and you're more than welcome to come out! I appreciate the offer too!

    I welded as much as I could in it's normal position then dropped the down tubes through the floor and tipped the whole cage forward to weld the top sides.

    Well back on topic before I start worrying about fenders and fuel cells. It turns out you shouldn't plug your welder into the extension cord that runs through 2 strip cords..... Our hangar is actually 20 amps and we're now back in the game finishing up the cage! PS thanks to @Wittenauer Racing for offering up garage space to get this welded if we hadn't figured out the issue!

    The door bars kicked my butt today but got them started at least. Hoping to have the cage wrapped up by next weekend.

    Its another Supra, just starting over on a clean chassis. The old one had 15+ years of thrashing on it. Thanks! I thought it was a clever/cheap alternative to the cage gages (they also don't make cage gages in a 7" bend radius). I've yet to scrap a tube so they're working out well! Funny enough I just found out today that I can flux core fine, but my mig doesn't have enough power to sustain a weld. Looks like I can tack it all together and then bring it to my house to weld in the trailer.
