turbogrill Posted January 10, 2022 Report Share Posted January 10, 2022 Hi, Being creative with the angle grinder and curious what I can cut out and still have the car operational. I am a little hesitant to remove stuff on the drivers side for safety focusing on passenger side. Is this a bad idea: 1. A pillar to "frame" stuff Cut out the red circle and attach the green line to the cage. I will keep a thin skin to the outside. Is the intention with the area marked red to provide support for the A pillar? (In case of a roll over). Or is it to give structure to the front engine bay "frame rails"? (Where the bumper eventually sits). (Passenger door is a skin only. Only cutting on passenger side now.) There seems to be 2 layers, where the outer layer has some thick stuff to keep the door in place, maybe I just cut that. Especially if I can't connect the apiller to the cage nicely. (Images from http://www.roadster.blog/2013/05/naked-roadster.html) 2. Door stuff From what I can tell the read area is just to keep the door in place. Since I don't have doors it shouldn't matter. Will need to connect the shell to the cage somehow. (Keeping driver door functioning) 3. Strip down the A-pillar + top window frame Not sure how heavy it is but the frame holding the window seems beefy, since I got a cage I can probably strip that down. I do run a roof so will create a little hassle with that. Feel free to share you pics of these areas if you have! Many thanks Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
