    [jeffs dad]the cams "legal"harness bar is already fitted in the cage...horizontal bar between the rear wheel arches!..as long as it isn't lower than 40 degrees from shoulder horizontal.also [in sa]i like to see 2 "stops "
    1each side of harness to stop it sliding sideways eg.2..large cable ties or[neater]a "u"shaped metal bracket over each belt,especially if there is any extreme length between seat& rear mntg. point.10 degrees is ideal but still allowed 40 deg.for harness angle.

        looks great - how much extra did you pay for the additional bars?

            John, goood work picking the trailer I used to work with Ash at ZF he convinced me it would be good idea to build the car. I think all of the body work is done on his sigma just needs some paint and he has a different box to go aswell.
            The trailer does tow well apart from my lack of brake controller, I plan to get a trailer but something smaller my car is just wide enough for Ash's.

            Da9jeff - He did charge me any extra for the braces, even kept the same price that he quoted me 3months ago when I booked it in.

            Playa - the weld goes all the way around even up around near the roof where the would only be 10mm clearance. Here are the photos of the bars meeting on the main hoop at the drivers side, first one is driver side of the hoop the second is through the rear door opening. If you want to come around and check it let me know.

              is there holes in your floor where he dropped the cage down?

                No holes in the floor there is steel plate welded to the floor the tube welded to that. For the main hoop feet he boxed up a section, below picture is of the passenger side.

                  Hoonboy or Jim do you anything about the Lancer a175 diff? I might be able to get one with a 3.9ratio and mech LSD but I don't know anything about them and how much power they can take.
                  I will go and measure it up tomorrow.

                        It is a 6point weld in with harness bar, rear diagonal brace and diagonal in the roof plus side intrusion bars. You can see in the picture that they also put small diagonal gussets from the main hoop to the b-pillar and top bar. I wanted it braced to the b-pillar but because the main hoop is set so far back they had to do it like this, it worked out well. I might have to squeeze some padding over the diagonal on the drivers side as I am sure I will hit it with my helmet over bumps
                        Is there a good reason that brace next to your head doesn't continue back to the rear feet?

"The new model is something like two thousand cubic inches, developing two hundred brake-horsepower at four thousand revolutions per minute on a magnesium frame with two styrofoam seats and a total curb weight of exactly two hundred pounds."

                          its how they always do it, seen same thing in the cams manual

                          also where is your taxi bar for harness mounts?

                            Doesn't mean its the right way... Terminating a diagonal in the middle of a span is bad practice - doesn't transfer the loads anywhere except into bending the span.

                              that tube is larger then usually used, have a look at every WRC car, they use it to strengthen that junction, usually around 20 cm long from what i seen.

                              I mean the door bars terminate in the middle of the hoop too....

                                See the posts above, he is using the bar going between the rear legs.
