So now that the cage is finished and the inside is all pretty what’s next? Well I decided at this point it was finally time to start getting some of the beautiful suspension components on the car that have been hiding away for far too long. Much like safety, suspension components are often overlooked in favour of more power as it’s easier to justify $XXXX to get 100HP more vs. adding a setting of $3000 coilovers and not having empirical data like a dyno sheet to back up the change. While I may accelerate the plan for the cars power, my first focus will always be to get the chassis, suspension and brakes all sorted out before worrying about adding huge amounts of power. Sure you can go quick at a track with gobs of power and crappy suspension but with a well sorted suspension and less power you can usually go just as fast.
So I cannot seem to find the pictures from when we picked up the car from Rally/Race Developments so we don’t have any of the before pictures of that. After picking up the car we brought the car back to the shop and arranged with our good friend Rich and body shop of choice Uni-Body Collision to bring the car over to them to have the cage painted. While we could have prepared and painted the inside ourselves the finished products would not be nearly as nice and we’d likely keep it simple with a white or black paint job. After talking with Rich we decided to do a little more and make the beautiful cage really stand out. So after dropping the car off Rich’s team got to work cleaning every inch of the cage and taping off the interior expertly so they could prime the cage.
Another thing we decided to do was to paint the engine bay in a high temp low gloss black.
We’re off to SEMA in just over a week and wanted to give everyone fair notice so they can get their orders and such in before the brief period we’ll be closed. We will be open November 3rd and then closed from the 4th-7th to attend the show. Any out of stock ordered items will be arriving to us on Nov 10th. We’ll be sure to keep Facebook and Instagram updated while we’re at SEMA.
Second trip over to Rally/Race Developments and more progress with the mock-up complete. Ryan started the process of doing the final welding for the main hoop, down tubes, roof bars and also designed and welded the door rails. Ryan prefers to use 2 continuous pieces of tubing instead of how some cages are down with an “X” for the door bars which has one continuous bar and the second bar is cut in half and welded to the other tube. Doing this design he feels it is a stronger design with less points of failure. In our case he lowered the bars slightly over where he has done them in Rally cars for better entry/exit of the car since there’s much less space in a 4DR then the typical 2DR car. Ryan was also able to get the bars very tight to the b-pillar which helps for space inside the car for the driver and passenger.
