just some stickers... µ, alta, h&r, and m7



heres a progress pic on the cage... its harder than it looks.

i cant believe chase did that on his own! luckily i had a trusty helper, marla singer.

its half way done now, the hard part seemed to be getting it in. the holes are drilled and the bottom plates are ready to go on. some of the hardware they supplied is not a perfect fit, so over the next few days ill be dealing with that. anyways... heres a pic!

haha looks great man. it will stiffen the car a bit, you will like it.


the roll bar i ended up getting from a guy who said it was for a sunroof car (which it turned out to not be) So i had the arms cut off and relocated and new mounting plates welded on. It was crazy. good luck buddy cant wait to see it

Roll cages add all sorts of interesting sounds to the car too.

Well, on mine we put some big metal plates under the car where the bar was mounted, so rocks and stuff that get kicked up hit those plates, and the sound rings pretty well inside the car with all that metal.

Of course, the brown MINI has all kinds of weird noises now, but back when the roll bar was pretty much the only heavy mod, it made for some interesting acoustics.

.....dood, last time I saw your car, it was pretty low.......but then again, I think my car is low when in actuality, it's a 4x4 compared to your car. I really hope you can make it to amviv Sam, it'd be great to have you there.

Love the tails man. Nice and simple addition that balances out the extreme awesomeness you've done to your car.
