A little while ago we were asked if we could make some replica John Aley roll bars for some period correct Mk1 Escort restorations. We had to make some tools to work with the skinny 1.25″ tubing that was used in period but they turned out great. We worked to some photographs from the early 70’s to get them just right.
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.
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.
This week we had the unusual task of making a bespoke rear cage with removable diagonal for a 1938 BMW 320 Saloon. We have supplied a set of chrome buckle seat belts with burgundy webbing to match the leather upholstery.
