Thanks Tom.

The revised roll cage is welded in, for the most part. My body wouldn't bend into position for the last few welds. Tomorrow I'll start fresh. The door bars will have to wait til the car is about done. In the way too much while building.
The rear down tubes are too steep to pass inspection but I ran out of body to the rear. They'll probably overlook that at the nostalgia drags. Not too fussy there.
I gained some rear wheel clearance raising the back of the body. I did it to get the forward lean of the body to match the frame. Much better now.
Man, the work I go through to gain a couple inches here and there.

Ya Bob, that is a very clean roll cage rebuild. No worry on the back down tubes. That cage would would pass tech in Bakersfield with flying colors. From past experance if you can pass tech there you can pass it anyware. Real nice construction.

I am with you on door bars until you are done with all the interior. Nice part is that they can be bolted in on the swing side and only installed for the few races. Way nicer for the street with them removed.

Maybe just maybe you are about to complete your last major modification on this project, lets hope so.

Wow! I appreciate all the responses. Not much new to report. NHRA rules state that the seat back must be bolted to a crossbrace on the main roll bar hoop. Also, a headrest is required. Those two things among some others got done recently.
