Hi guys! Valerie now has a Custom Cages roll cage :D It was an absolute nightmare of a job, what with having to drop the cage within the shell to weld the top of the bars etc, but well worth the effort now that I see it finished. I had to rectify a few manufacturing mistakes... like pipes being bent or cut the wrong way :roll: Never mind though, It's all fine & dandy now!!

Cheers,

Leigh.

Hi Leigh.

Impressive stuff. The V8 Magnum needs some MOT work and tidying up. Most of my time was taken up with Joes Firenza but I thought it wise to do a few jobs around the house to keep things sweet. :roll:

Once this is done I'll be back to it.

Keep it up 8)
