Talking My cage finally!

It took almost 2 years but I started working on my rollcage!


A few details for now:
custom full external rollcage for D90 SW made by North Offroad in UK,
supplied in kit form.
Cage around the cab is weld-on for better rigidity, the rest is bolt-on to allow roof swap from SW to truck cab and back, I have a full cage for the SW roof and diagonal stays with a tweak for the Cube in truck cab configuration.
Front hoop in one piece, front hoop mounts courtesy of Equipe 4x4.



More pics to follow...

EDITED to say: whoops, first pic is something else...didn't mean to...VGT kit for 300 Tdi engine...

Yup!Bolt-on VGT kit for 300 Tdi!
It should give the same torque of a Td5 (300 Nm) but @ 1400 rpm!


We'll have the test D90 dynoed and I'll let you know how it works...

In the meawhile I'm having issues with my cage...I got the chassis mounts (originally forgotten when I bought the cage) and they are frankly non-existent...just some flat plates.
So we'll have to think and design and build our own mounts, and this means some delay.
I hope to have the Cube back and running by the beginning of July!!!!

Any suggestion for some well-thought chassis & x-member mounts are welcome...
