Jem now has a T45 filly TIG welded multi point cage fitted by Ben as Caged Laser.  FIA appendix K regs dent allow the front stays but as I quite like working legs they are fitted!

Love the cage. I assume the gear linkage is going over that front cage tube and the exhaust is going under.

Mike gear linkage will be in car so rod will pass over tube.  Exhaust will also go over tube as I want to run this higher in the tunnel out of the wind.  The front cross bar pick up on the subframe mounts when Dean Robertson had his big hit a few years ago the subframe came up through the floor!  Lots and lots to do!

A very nice job Pete. I went a little further and picked up the rear shock mounts as well as some tortional rigidity around the occupants How have you handled the connection to The subframe towers? Crush tubes and threads in the subframe?

Generally you are not allowed for feed suspension forces directly in to a roll cage so you need to be careful picking up on the shocker tops.

The front legs go forward between the two bolts the hold the subframe to the crossmember.  A single bolt then bolts the end of the tube to the crossmember.

Hello Pete,
Looking good so far. I’m a bit behind you  with my mk 2 jem Hillclimb car. I’ve owned it since 1989. Looking at your forward facing bars to the front crossMember , I assume you are able to put the rubber springs in without the compression tool? Or have you offset the bar to allow access to the hole. I wouldn’t mind copying this if possible.
Also , are you intending to run in road going class.
I’m building mine to run slicks so will probably be in with the racing Caterham type things.
I’ll upload some images when I work out how to do it !!
Regards
Ian

It's &#8217 and its the HTML code for the right single quotation mark, I suspect a keyboard setting issue as I presume you were intending to use an apostrophe.
