Oh I am going to stick it out. I figure the cost of what I waste figuring it out is the cost of tuition, or still less expensive than paying some one else to do it. The bender part is a bit of it. Its been hard to wrap my head around this kind of bender. I am using a JD2 model 4 hydraulic bender that the die stays stationary, and the shoe forms the tube around it. There is no way I would be able to figure out where to start the bends without the BT. My problem is feeding the correct measurements, or where to correctly get the measurements from. Like the forward part of the cage is a custom piece, not a template piece. Though I have had an epiphany about using magnets and plum bobs to get more accurate measuring for the pick points.

Yeah thats a tough piece to get right! Well just depends on how picky you are ; )

I always have in the back of my mine that the tree/rock will put it in the right place or tweak it anyway ; )
Helps with curing/coping perfectionsim.

Very important to do the 90degree tube bend set up to plug in numbers in bend tech! Ask me how i know..

Got that part done, good and accurate. The problem is me, not bend tec or the bender. The product it puts out is only as good as the measurements you put in.

Got 3 days in on it. Dont have near as much completed as I thought I should have in that time but on to the pics.

My brother who helped this weekend talked me into switching to a halo style top of cage. I like it way better this way.







Still having issues with bend tech and my bender not cooperating together. Currently working with bend tech customer support to figure it out so we will see how that turns out. I have bent 5 hoops/halo's that didnt come out correctly. at least 48 ft of tube that I cant use for what I was intending it for.

Can you use the bent tube for the rear? I have licked out and found other uses for my screwups ; ).

Where does the front of hoop (A hoop) bolt to besides the body? In other words Is there a frame tie in?

I removed my targa because I kept hitting the back of my head on it when I would look out the side and either hit a rock or accelerated. Lots of head room now. The support from the halo to the b hoop may give ya headache. May want to make it shorter to tuck in a little more IMHO..

Lookin good man

Yup and yup. I will be throwing away the bends if they dont work for tie ins. But those base plates have one on the other side sandwiching the body. Then when it actually has a frame the cage will be tied into it in 6 spots. Lots of straight sections I can salvage. As for banging my head on stuff. Its something I'll have to deal with or do with out. I am 6'3" so the seat is as far back as it can be. And if I cant Keep a soft top then the samy body is a waste. I need this thing to be fully enclosed and weather proofed for the lil lady or its a no go. Luckily I am the only one I know who could even remotely manage to hit my head on that. The only way I'll be able to reach it is if the rig is upside down and I am hang ing from the belts. And any one else driving it will need to slide the seat forward especially my shorty. Cant make it any shorter because the shorter it gets the more it comes inward above the head rest.

It will now, I forgot to take a picture of it. Took it off and while I was working on the cage my buddy Drew took it apart and redrilled the 3 holes. So the bracket bolts on the same but the motor points the other way.

Thanks Wally. I have two parts of the cage I am having burning hell with so if you ever make it over this way I got an all you can drink beer offer for a few minutes help.

Spent half the day yesterday putting an air conditioner on my garage so I could stand to be in it. Even at 8 p.m. yesterday it was hotter in the garage than outside. Now its nice and cool so I can cncentrate.

Got some more rough tube work done. Didnt like my "A" pillar bars so I took them out to redo them. Didnt figure out how to do them so I moved on to something else for a while.






I'll have to fill this hole with sheetmetal I guess
