Sorry guys. Still at the salt mines in Frederick. Will miss it. But looking forward to the next one. Maybe the beast will be back on wheels by then. HA. All your Defenders would make fun of my LR4 tonight anyway for being a Chelsea tractor :-)

Not going to make it this month; between this awful cold and the newborn I'm a bit smoked; hope to be less lame next month.

Skinny P,
Figured you would get a kick out of this. Here is the cage on my E30 build. $1200 knocked down to $900 if sporting the name of the shop on the rear of the car, Roll Cage Components. Big project, sweet welds, super price. So what makes a Defender x-cross replacement so $$$$ or specialized?

Then you have this hack job. Unbelievable....

Nice shop in Powhatan, VA
Clearly not the DC inside-the-beltway prices for welding.

Yeah, that's more like it. Rear cross shouldn't take more than a day.

Zero reason. We should send him some rear cross work. At those prices Lav can stop taking Uber between Halloween and Easter

Really is silly what we pay for convenience here in the DC area.
