Thanks RSbob, once I get the cage done, will shake down the car and will likely go that route.
Cheers

Right side trailing arm to main hoop.


Left side trailing arm mount to main hoop. The car already has the inner tailing arm mount reinforcement plates, and rear chassis plates. But except for some weight penalty, its better to assure rigidity here.


Rear plates ready for strut bar






Rear mount points tacked up

45 degree tie downs from rennline mounted at the torsion bar from mounts. Planning on black and red two tone bumpers



I couldn't get these 912 style front Rennline plates to work, so i cut one up and used it as a rear recovery point attached to the rear trans mount.

The rear section was reworked so as to bring the rear stays close to the top of the main hoop.


This means i have to make cutouts for the rear stays through the engine lid and go with a plexiglass rear window. I really wanted to avoid this, but the alternative was a petty bar across the cabin. Still deciding on how to cut this.



Window gussets!

Tig tacked the door bars, main hoop cross and harness bar.

Trying to maintain a stock dash, so the lower knee pad trim was modified to accept the upper door bar.

The stock door latch contacts the door bars, so came up with the idea to switch them left to right, worked like a charm.

Also some RS style door pulls, made them with .75 inch grey nylon, grommet kit with steel washer.





Door bars with 40mm lap joints, run through the lower dash vents.



Trimmed inner foam and metal surround behind the vent so as to keep the lower dash.
