I have a pickup as a daily driver but it does get driven every day, I try to hop on it as much as possible
My goal for now is just to have fun and improve my track times at the road course and 1/4 mile.
And make a lot of noise so my Neighbors get MAD!!! Hahaha

Exactly, there's no penetration, the welder was not hot enough and/or operator moving to fast.

I have no idea how the welder will do it, all he told me was to bolt it in first and he will take care of the rest. The guy has built 100's of cages and knows his stuff so I am in good hands

The cage was custom built.

Well I am planning on a track day on Sebring 2 weeks from now so I will let you know how my and my wife's back feels after a couple of hour drive. Hope she doesn't kill me lol

Did you test fit it before you had it coated? I know that's probably a dumb question but I have to ask
