They are doing some very nice cage work down there. "Fabman Approved". lol.
Their computer design process and attention to detail are what sold me. They will 3D scan the interior with and without the headliner & trim panels. From there they will CAD the layouts to get the bars out as close to the shell as possible. This will be a great improvement for taller drivers vs the kits currently available.

I am not a man that's easily impressed, and I very rarely see cage work this good.
Very rarely.

Well that's why i want.. looks custom but its bolt in.
Here’s their bolt-in design. Main hoop is much tighter to the headliner then others on the market

Good stuff. Obviously you're getting pro assembly by them, but I really like how the kit is laid out with all the printed ovals and numbered tubes. It's a real nice touch that makes it easy to assemble even for those of us who went to public schools.

Looks amazing, I’m surprised they say the dash doesn’t need to be removed
They left mine in for the entire build. Mostly because of the wiring, which tunnels through areas and they determined it would take more time to sort out the wiring than just loosening the dash enough to work around it.

That's incredible that they managed that. I've been planning out when I can get a cage installed and I thought for sure I'd have to pull it for them. Great news!

The down side of doing it that way is....look how low the dash bar is. :confused:
Kind of a knee knocker.....but you can't have everything. Always compromises to be made, its the nature of the sport.
The rest of it looks great.

This looks beautiful. Are you planning to do some ST racing with NASA now? I can't wait to see it in person.
Thanks Ricky. No firm plans at the moment, but quickly removing the obstacles to being WTW legal. Really just a cutoff switch, fire suppression system and some containment nets from being legal now. I took the weight penalty and had them install the .120” wall tubing that NASA requires for 3000#+ cars.
