Only to look at....wait til you try climbing in and out with a helmet/hans etc lol.....there'll be lots of bad words said !!

I know the cage has to do a job...but they really are hateful to use....or even worse when trying to work inside the car !! Even a contortionist will struggle.

It does look like very nice work though

It's not too bad getting in and out of, and no worse than the old one, so I'm happy. I need to weigh it again to see what the difference is.

Slow progress, but progress. The cage is now painted, so refitting everything. Wiring is back in and the car runs.

A bit of coil pack bling, plus it fills the gap between the coils and rocker cover:

Image

I need a new windscreen as the original broke when the cage came out. Just waiting for the window guy to get one.
I also have perspex windows to fit. Currently doing the door windows, and will then fit the doors once the windscreen is in.
The window guy will do the rear perspex screen at the same time.
I need to do some work on fitting the rear 3/4 windows, as the car had pop out windows. I've binned the mounts for those, and will just trim these to fit, and then need to secure them somehow.

I have the fittings for the fuel pressure sensor as well, so will also fit that.

I have all day Sunday on it, so hoping to have everything bar the windows done, so I can book a test day as soon as they're in.

My cage is easy to work on inside the car, I just take the side panels off ;)

Time to bring this up to date.

It looks like a car again, if somewhat dirty (works in the unit created a lot of dust):
Image
The windows are in, if a bit rough and ready, with rivets and some window sealant I bought from the guy who fitted the windscreen.

Plex Knock Monitor installed:
Image
I still need to finish the last bit of the set up, but that has to be done on the dyno, as I need a full run through the RPM range with no knock.
It currently thinks I have knock at idle because I haven't set that up yet.
I've connected both knock sensors, but only using one for now. I can easily change that.

Wiring is also in for the fuel pressure sensor, but I haven't fitted the sensor in to the fuel line yet, as I ran out of time. I just need some hose clips.

Off to Badger5 tomorrow for mapping, although it's supposed to be 30 tomorrow, so not sure how much we'll see. Hopefully we'll have time to fit the fuel pressure sensor.

First race is 18/19 if tomorrow goes well.

Gearbox flange is loose. Looks like someone didn't tighten the bolt.
The gearbox oil is now all at the bottom of the dyno. As it was doing 150mph just before that without any issues, I'm hoping it happened at the end of the day.
