    Got the front bars in and the upper dash and V bars in but not totally. Also anyone with a cage or idea regarding the side bars to mount the bars across for the seats. A traight one would be tons easier but a curved one would follow the contour better. I plan on a angle peice across the door area too. Any comments, suggestion, or contructive criticism appreciated. Not too fond of the angle of the front uprights, shoulda been less angle but not terrible.

    what are your plans for a dash? And how much do you think you will have in the cage (material)?

    Here is an idea of the dah I intend to build. I'd say about $250-300 so far into materials.
