Hey guys and gals. I would like to take a minute to show off a little of our 2011 Pro-Am build.
Well with a 5th place finish, a "rookie of the year" title at the Thunderdrift Pro-Am series, and having to decline an invite to the Pro-Am Nations due to the car not up to Formula D tech..It was time to get cracking.
First off Rob gutted the car of all wiring and what was left of the interior. He also had all the glass removed so I could start on the cage.
Being that Rob is a very big guy over 6' 7". We had to get the cage as far out as possable.
Once the front half of the cage was tacked together we had to drop it through the floor to make sure we got full 360 degree welds.
Now that the top of the cage was done we plated the floor and atached the cage to the car.
We wanted a little wiggle room with the door bars so we bent them to go indo the door shell.
No giant dimple die plates here.
We still have a bit to do, and only a couple of weeks until the first event.
Thanks to everyone that has been helping us along. The entire build can be seen at Rob's web sitewww.mestiso.net/forums/index.php
Thanks for looking
