    Default FREE roll cage mod

    Free roll cage mod, alloy tube on eBay, enough to do two baja for £4.50, you make two sets, one for you and sell you're mate the other set for £4.50!
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/13mm-1-2-OD-Al...item439ae98121

    Cut the cage half way down the back section


    Cut two pieces of alloy tube 100mm and drill a hole right though on end


    Place the tubes on the back section and drill though the holes in the tube and bolt them in place (you can just drill a hole one side and screw in a self tapper)


    Fit the back section on the car and slide the front section in place.


    All done.

    agreed. makes a nice change when you can do something like this for next to nothing, and it makes such a difference to maintenance etc.

    Well i won some home made quick release cage mods from cabbie and i finnaly fitted them tonight whilst i stripped my baja down for a clean and oil as my engines still not back yet

    Fitted in minutes even tho i was using a blunt hack saw to cut the cage but they fit on beautifully and look fab! very pleased, and bellows a few pics of the work bench and them fitted!

    (just to say the baja hasnt been cleaned yet but i have pulled the old mesh from the chassis etc ready to replace it with something new)
