Hi

The rollcage is almost done but it was a long way.
The cage was build step by step with .080", 1/16" and .040" evergreen rod.



















Cage and body together...











...and this is the finished one, ready for putty, sanding and primer.

Wow that cage is a thing of beauty! I still struggle to make roll cages that realistic, so I am really liking yours.
