Re: Mark's 1G Winter Projects

You did this so friggin fast, can tell you really have mastered tubing work. It will be interesting to see the weight after all this for sure. Your dedication to weight savings is awesome. The custom window net turned out great as well! Did you decide what color you are gonna paint the cage yet?

Re: Mark's 1G Winter Projects

I cut the roof off! The cage is welded and I'm awaiting certification.



I also received my carbon parts!

Roof test fit.



2g dash is awesome! Took a lot of cutting to get it fit. The 2g dash is about 6" thicker!

Re: Mark's 1G Winter Projects

How does the carbon get bonded to the steel on the roof? I have heard mix reviews on carbonetics, how did your experience go with him?

Re: Mark's 1G Winter Projects

Keep us updated Troy! I'm cool to see you get this new car down the track. Should be a good year for you.


Thanks for the comments guys. I've got more carbon parts to show off in the next couple of weeks.

As for carbonetics. I ordered all my stuff at the end of July. It showed up late January. Their quality is awesome, their customer service sucks, expect double lead time that they quote you. The stuff was packaged and all boxed very carefully. It's much like dealing with Frontline fabrication. Just know that their focus is on high quality parts.

Re: Mark's 1G Winter Projects

Oh yeah, I'm using a 3M panel bonding epoxy to install the roof.

Could you post more pictures of how you installed the dash with your down bars.

I'm using 1/4 turn fastners on each side and on the steering column. Then a small reinforcement on the center counsel interface, where my switch panel is going to go.

Re: Mark's 1G Winter Projects

Getting much further along, the floor is painted, the cage is primed ready for paint. I decided to paint the cage body color and leave the floor black. I'm going to paint the rest of the interior body color. The cage was certified too, legal to 7.5 seconds now!





I guess I never realized that the doors were so heavy. It's crazy, I can't wait to see what the carbon/Kevlar saves me. I'll post it up once I find out an apples to apples comparison.

Re: Mark's 1G Winter Projects

Nice work on the certification, and I think carbon doors are gonna cut alot of weight. Are doors carbonetics as well?
