I hate myself for always wanting to complete a topic first before posting a new blog post about it! For months I have a lot of projects on the Z going on, but all of them are about 80% finished.
That’s why I’m forcing myself to write about the 80% finished front cage, and hopefully all the other 80% projects as well! 😀
Unpacking the goods!:) Back then it was still sunny and warm outside…freezing to death right now in the garage…
Those are the weld in plates the front part of the cage will be bolted to:
Cleaned up both sides where the welds will be
And zinc sprayed everything, to prevent rusting from the inside!
Tacked into place, after I removed the front cage assembly a couple of times to get everything in correct!
That’s why I said it’s only 80% finished, I still have to fully weld them up, this time with more experience the welds will come out prettier hopefully, and I won’t make the mistakes to grind them down, don’t think a track inspector would like to see that too much. Am planning on rewelding the plates in the back as well, just to give them a nice welding bead finish for track inspections, and not look ground down!
Here’s the whole cage installed!:)
