    I am about to put my front supports in my cage this week and don't really wanna go in front of the dash and take up that much room. Anyone have pics of cage going thorugh dash and tips about doing so? I also plan on building my own dash eventually but for the time I just need to get the main bars down then collect the stuff to do the dash later.

    I removed the E-brake mechanism so i could keep it tighter to the sides. I eventually intend on using an E-brake lever from an import.

    It would be nice IMO if more people on here would do that. I like the way it looks alot better than the cages going around the dash.

    Well...

    uhhh...

    hmmm...


    The dash bar is so tight to the dash skeleton it kinda precludes being able to throw the stock dash pad back on. :crazy:

    The 'function' part was more important to me, plus I do eventually plan on a fabricated aluminum dash pad. Now that I'm playing with gauges and stuff i might get motivated enough to cover the ugly dash skeleton.

    I figured it wasn't all gonna fit in there, but it looks good anyways. Post up whatever you fab up. It's looks good so far.
