I finally broke down and took off the door so I could block it without sitting on a milk crate and hunching over.  I'll pull the other door off to work on it when this one is ready.

bought it from some website and had to modify it slightly to fit, I can't remember the site off hand though...ask stevemode...he has the same cage.  I think it was around $300ish though for it.

That's a ton of work, I could see how someone could get burnt out doing that.

Car runs and drives (well used to, wont run worth a shit anymore for some reason as of last summer and I haven't really dug into it too far).  God only knows when this project will be finished.  I've been working on it off-and-on for like 3-4 years.  :-X

Thank you for cleansing the earth of a riced out POS. Should be solid when done. You head/helmet gonna clear the main hoop and down bars of the roll bar? Looks awfuly close.

I clear the cage, although I am thinking about making new seat brackets to lower the seat a little.

body work is always the worst part, cause you never want to do it  :(

why would you not run it, it makes no sense. If there is a water cooled section it was designed to be run with it for cooling. Pretty sure garrett knows better then some fat guy in a accord.  :P
