Re: Andre's 2g GSX build

I really like the tubed front upper radiator support. Does it bolt to at the ends? Also the paint looks really nice!

Re: Andre's 2g GSX build

Thanks for the nice comments again. No bolts on the front clip, I know it's common that people do this but in all honesty I just feel safer with it being welded all together and I was able to make it stronger that way in my opinion. It would really help with engine removal if I would have.

Today I removed the doors and all the remaining interior bits. Hopefully tomorrow I can start with the main hoop.

Re: Andre's 2g GSX build

Pretty much spent all my spare time on project safety this winter. Only third cage I have welded together and my only one that was not a pre bent. Chromoly .083 1 3/4" all the way through out, all tig welded on my miller synchro. Thanks again to mark for ligning me up with Jim from the nhra.

I did a lot of trial and error with cheap mild steel. Took a lot of time but I have zero education in bending tube and learned a ton I would say. Jim had some nice things to say and I would say he was impressed. Hope u guys like it!

Work is way crazy right now and this is unfortunately not gonna get finished super fast. Planning on pg2 with any kind of luck or at least a Wednesday night this year. Kinda wanted to do big track stuff in the Mazda at pg2 though so we will just have to see how it goes.











And the best part!
