    yes i have seen a few like that, i can't think of any names off the topof my head. i started to do mine like that, but didn't feel the leg room gain was worth the trouble. does make for a clean look though.

    Boz42, have you run into any issues with having the body welded to the frame through the cage?

    there has been a big debate on that on this forum, i haven't ran mine in this configuration yet. i believe i will be alright due to the fact that my cage is tied to the frame at 10 points. it may not, it may cause the frame to break, i will have to see.

    my opinion is race cars are built this way & when done right they have no problem.

    I think when I do my cage, I am going to lose the dash altogether and build my own.
