The owner of this Lenham project wanted a bespoke weld-in roll cage. The advantage of a bespoke roll cage is that you can make subtle changes to suit your driving position or your favourite seat. The advantage of a weld-in cage is that it provides a little more rigidity for the chassis and it also saves a little weight. The weight of the nuts and bolts from a roll cage can add up to a couple of kilos.
Last week we fitted this T45 lightweight historic roll cage. They are made with great precision and as such are a tight fit. This one went in well. Next step is to mount the seat and then get it in for paint.
We are fitting a bespoke roll cage in a 1964 Ford Falcon. Before we started on the cage we had to end to the drivers side floor. Both front and rear floor pans were rusty with poor repairs. Once the structure had been restored we were able to start work on the cage. This is a 6-point bolt in roll cage from 45mm tubing with dash rail and harness bar.
We’ve made another custom 6-point bolt-in roll cage for a Sebring Sprite. We’ve slotted the front dash/scuttle to allow the front legs to pass through giving better clearance for the steering wheel.
We made a custom rear roll cage for this Lenham Le Mans. The cage features rear lateral bars that pick up the rear spring mounts.
Not often you see Hillman Avengers on the road or on a rally stage but we think this one should be an interesting alternative to an Escort. The original front cage was not to spec so we removed it and made a new one along with a new pair of door bars.
