SD Cage Part 4--C HOOP

The C hoop attaches to the rear of the T post via brackets and ties the B and D hoop together via the upper stringers:

There are 3 parts to the C hoop bracket. Make sure you check the middle one in this picture, they are handed and will not fit if used on the wrong side. The unfinished plate on the right (thanks Safety Devices ) is a backing plate that goes inside the T post :

SD Cage Part 5--External Front cage and cross braces

The external front cage is easy since I have already installed the A bracket to the outer wings. Hardest part was drilling through a perfectly good roof. I start with pilot holes to locate the inner B hoop and enlarge as necessary:

Wow Forrest! So envious of your project!!!

Quick question, are you going to have interior trim when done? Would they still fit? (Headliner, window trim, etc)

No trim for me . I prefer old school Land Rover deco like with my Series truck. Paul has a complete La Salle interior trim and he says it fits, but it was harder to install the cage because of it. Maybe he will chime in and give his thoughts about it.

To make it drivable, not much. Glass, door seals, seats (will retrim the front once the kit comes in), and hooking up the rear lights. Also need to pull the drive member to redo one of the seals.

To complete to truck to my liking, I will have to paint the top of the T posts limestone to match the upper half of the truck. So close!

Yes, I have the same cage, Lasalle Trim headliner and side trim and a Linexed bed. I like all three but the combination prooved challenging for the install. I also put a layer of dynamat and 1" of acoustical foam on the entire roof before installing the headliner. Now that it's fitted, it's all good. However, in hindsight a regular headliner would have been much easier to install. When I installed mine it was a multi-day 10-12 beer job. For Forrest's cage 2nd time around it was a couple hours and a 3 beer job and a great way to spend a free day. Thanks man, Orlando was a blast in large part to your hospitality.

Thanks! I wanted a RHD. This truck is just a toy for me, not meant as a daily driver. Wanted to keep the restoration as original as I can to keep the novelty and charm of a true old-school UK Land Rover

We have a 62k mile original 83 here and surprisingly the factory used a vinyl wrap on the posts above the waist cappings.

When your seat is all the way back does the seat back touch the cage when you recline it ?
A couple I have imported did and I couldn't drive the truck.

Looks great ! See you have the heater intake cover- anticipating snow in Orlando ?

I have the vinyl wrap but it's for the inside of the T post, the outside is just bare paint.

As for the seats, I just check and with the seat all the way back the cage does not prevent the seat from going back. The side of the seat just barely grazes the hoop.

No snow in Florida. My truck came with intake covers on both sides. I took the one on the right off.

Know what you are refer to inside, have that as well. This is a vinyl wrap outside like the county decals that went down the sides but limestone in color and cover the b pillars which are trident under the vinyl.

Thanks, that is good to know. I always thought they were painted since my old T-posts were painted limestone. Any chance you know where I can get a set?

No idea. I was surprised by these. All my prior trucks had had paint work done so the vinyl was long gone.. Bet any local sign or body wrap decal place could fix you up cheap if you would rather not paint.

Doug- will you pot a photo? Curious about this and can't seem to visualize it.

Sorry for the hijack. As usual truck is looking awesome and love all the photos in the thread.
