So a rollbar. Cage incorporates a halo. Prefab or?

had the rear panels reupholstered before the cage goes in. rear seats will be re-done when cage is in. as seat bottom will have to be notched

Have you checked your seat clearance to that cross bar? I know that might sound silly but i know that a lot of cages wrap back a little bit with that bar to give the front seats clearance

yes. Mike fitted the harness cross bar behind the seat to my max position. the rear seat is getting re-upholstered and notched... to match the front seats as well.

speedyquest- Thank You! Stay Tuned


so its been in the air for a while and I had a few beers and then suddenly it hit me.....

Mods- please let me know if this is an acceptable name change as I am changing the name of this build to..... "RALLIART's B@$T@RD- RB28 1987 Mitsubishi Starion".. meaning of the word.... "A variation that is not genuine; something irregular" and fits perfectly for obvious reasons... ha.

I have to get some pix of the car since Ive picked it up. Its being stored for the time being but the cage is complete. lets just say... Im very happy

another update.. Ive changed the name yet again for a final time. Midnight Star.. the RB is legendary at night on the Wangan... thought it was a much more fitting name.

car is going for paint and body work 2nd week of May.
