    Working on my custom cage to incorporate the back seats, so it still stays as standard-ish as possible with some added safety features. In primer at the mo, will be painted black.

    Love it, Theres one that goes to knockhill (not sure of the guys name) but it's insanely fast. Usually four wheel drifting round the hair pin with flames firing out the side exit. He did the drag racing competition for fun and managed to stall it everytime and beat evos everytime :)

    @ Ness

    That's Charlie Shaw and Andrew Gallacher. Proper mad heads :)


    ***UPDATE****

    Well the cage is finished and looks great IMO, big difference in the corners. Can't wait to see the difference on track. Just needs some false flooring and carpeting between the fuel tank and the front carpet and it'll be sound. Here's a few pics from Monday's developments....

    Seats out ready...

    Decided on keeping the back seats out, because it looks so damn good! :)

    So as the day went on, at 4pm Monday I decided to change the oil. But for whatever reason, I just didn't focus on where the jack was and the fact it was slipping. It ended up falling on the front half of the sump, bending it like a banana! :( So the whole front end needed to be removed to get the sump off that night. Luckily it had only bent and not crushed any of the crank or anything drastic.

    So I drove back to Wales this morning to pick up a spare sump off my good friend John Coles, dropped it off at a lad who does alloy welding and he welded the old breather sump boss off my old sump. Then it was a case of finding a gasket, which seem to be like gold dust around here :cry: Anyways, by 6pm today it was running and back to normal....mad 2 days! :cry:

    I can do mate, and thanks much appreciated. I'm doing a few extra bits underneath it at the moment, so hopefully over the weekend I can post some decent pics. I have a new diff to fit as well and an adjustable beam, so will hopefully get some vids up :)
