At this point, we are about 1 week away from completion.  8.5 cert cage with swing outs.  Welded into trunk parachute mount.

This looks soooo familiar!! You think we have the only 2 GT-R's getting cages this month in the US?

Nice work!

If all tracks were strict like I encounter, I think we'd be seeing all kinds of full cage builds with the number of GT-R's under 10.0 these days.

Are you planning on putting full interior back in once the cage is done?

Yes.  Even factory seats...

I'm a big guy and there are very few aftermarket seats that would work at all.   Technocraft T5 was the leading contender.  Building the cage to fit the large factory seats leaves open the option to use any aftermarket seat in the future.

The shop is building harness mount points to attach to the factory seat mounts for 6 point harnesses.  Window net of course.

Feel ya on the big guy comment 6'2@250 38 inch waist. I like your thinking on the seating issue,your absolutely correct if it will work on factory seats,it will work on any seats.

2hipsi "Jordan" let me sit in his Tenocrafts not sure which 1's but he said they were the biggest and those were quite comfortable for me

A few more in progress pictures came from the builder today.  Looks like we have an April 8th pick up date locked in.
