Wow what a ride it has been the last three weeks... Eight days in the hospital, emergency surgery, now back at home recovering. No lifting for awhile, it will slow down the rebuild, but I will be be back. I still enjoy going out in the shop and sitting in a chair and just looking and planning for the next part.

I am starting to feel much better, it takes time to recover and rebuild just like the car. I live in Crosby, east of Houston.

I like your rear bars on your cage!!! Finally someone that has understood that you have to clear the heads of the rr passengers for them to be worth bending.... Lol!!! Seriously, i really dig em, did you do them yourself? If not, did you buy em bent that way? I always see them bent but not enough so that they really clear people or, they are installed too inside like too much in the center of the main hoop, in the center of car if you will.

Glad to see your moving ahead, nice project....and talk about a lesson in perseverance!!!!!!!

And i tough my 5 years to do mine we're long!!!! I'll stop wyning now....

Keep the pics flowin'

Thumbs up

Yea there are so many different things that have to be thought thru when you start taking a car to this level. We had many discussions about the cage and the actual need versus functionality. We finally settled on the final design. The bars extend all the way to the top of the rear frame rails. The cage was all custom built and bent with a hand powered bender mounted on the floor. The guys over at Camaro Concepts in Houston did the work on the cage and metal replacement.
