    looks cool, let us know if it noticeably stiffens the chassis afterwards. remember to round off the edges of the mounting plates so it wont act as a can opener in a crash and tear youe unibody a new asshole just a suggestion in general to people who may follow this idea up, but it seems like you got it all down already.
    Not the first Time I build a cage altho it is the first time I build one at home in my driveway. Feels weird not using my shops tools.


      what are you using to weld them together? mig?


        Llooks like a mig. Usually people use that since its faster and penetrates pretty well. Tig does too but takes a while lol.

          I'm using MIG, Since it is for my personal vehicle I don't care too much how the welds look as long as the penetration is there

          I will have more pictures up when I have a Chance to work on it, dealing with customers cars on a daily basis doesn't want to make you work on yours


            Suscribing to this, always wanted a cage in the CB.

              looks like some good work man! just looking at the pictures i was going to say you should definately box or plate the end of the hoop, as well as tie it in with 2 or more points to the rear, but after reading i realized you had it covered!

              yes, but those guys are idiots.

              adding that much heat to a steel tube without proper heat-treating afterward weakens the hell out of it.
