    I'd like to see that profile. How much headroom remains?

    After I mounted the seats I had a friend that is 6'1" come over and sit in the seat. I placed the roof 6" over his head. It wound up being about 5.5" lower.

    I'll try to get some profile pics for you.

    Furtelli's right on with the revised roof hieght.. I'm 6'2," and if you build to the plans there's a full 12" over your helmet..

    Furtelli (and all shotgun builders), Another mod to consider is to put a piece of straight tubing between the shock mount hoops across the back of the car.. it will run way above the engine and look like it belongs, and will help to keep the rear upper cage from bowing in in the event that you bottom hard on the rear suspension... my cage is bent up there and needs the mod.. maybe best to do it before it's a problem...

    I stretched the wheelbase to 111" and lowered the cage.Much nicer look.Rorty does a nice job but apparently likes the boxier look.

    Thanks for the tip Radio. I have been looking into different ways to make the rear stronger. I want it strong so I don't have belt alignment issues after I slap the tail in the dirt.

    Are you the one that bought Standfast's car?

    Yes.. I bought Standfasts car.. you're absolutely going to love it, and your choice in drivetrain.... I've got to take the time to update Stand's build log.. over my head in work right now... haven't even had time for the car, but that should change soon... nice start on yours btw..

    Looking good.

    If you wouldn't mind and when you get to that point of your build, would you attach a side profile pic with someone in the cockpit? I would really like to see the lower profile roll cage.
