Lotus Cortina gets T45 roll cage

The Mk1 Lotus Cortina has been in the workshop this week receiving it’s new roll cage. The old bolt in cage was removed and the new T45 lightweight roll cage from Custom Cages has been installed. The new cage saves around 13kg in weight and it has extra tubes to make the car safer. Win, win.

Mk1 Mini T45 roll cage fitting

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.
