    Looking to see if anyone knows of good roll cage fabricators in Scotland. I am wanting to get a bolt in half cage for my ps13 sunroof model and wanting to keep the headliner and all interior plastics and have a bolt in cross brace and harness bar the car will be used for road and occasional track nights.
    Thanks in advance

    Hey Kieran,

    Where in Scotland are you located?
    I'd recommend Alan Miller at Millermods in Tillicoultry for this kind of job.

    He's done a lot of work over the years and is Custom Cages certified too.

    Andrew Gallacher on the west coast maybe.

    But I'd imagine most fabricators wouldn't really be doing half bolt in cages. I'd guess most would want to be doing proper cages.

    Bolt in is for off the shelf stuff.

    I can give you a name to AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE - Roddy Sneddon: MOIDFAB.
    Give it a search on Facebook and you'll find a post by John Stuart after they did "lock mods" to his S14 including:

    - Lengthening the tie rods (I've never seen someone do this before...)

    - Lengthening the lower arms

    4316_n.?_nc_cat=100&ccb=1-3&_nc_sid=730e14&_nc_ohc=I33mWCFHfK0AX_cAZZV&_nc_ht=scontent-lcy1-1.
    8216_n.?_nc_cat=108&ccb=1-3&_nc_sid=730e14&_nc_ohc=rhfz1ppKokIAX_B6joq&_nc_ht=scontent-lcy1-1.

    Thankfully, the tie rods snapped when he started driving it out the carpark away from Moidfab, not when he was driving down the A92 at 70.

    Absolute cowboys at best, downright dangerous at worse.
