I wouldn't bother mate to be honest, they are dangerous, I'd either not bother at all or get a proper one fitted, bolt in ones are that expensive.

Look on Deamon Tweeks

Good to know you got one sorted, pics would be good. I was considering the same route for track days as a proper built cage is over £900 for mine.

Sounds like a very good deal, materials alone are costly these days as I have costed it up for FIA spec stuff.

I'd like to see some pictures of this cage. I doubt I could make one for that. Is this a full or half cage? The hot rod guys tend to make pretty good cages as the rules are somewhat tighter than most. I know the SEGTO rules are tight as I've made a few back in the day!

Not my cup of tea but I do appreciate the amount of effort put into it. I do like the fact that mates can't always blag a ride as there are only two seats. Did this affect your insurance alot with those level of mods?

Now I know what to look out for I'll give you a honk if I see you! Look out for a grey Audi Avant with black grill running around!

i got a half cage very similar to yours mate. i got it off a friend last week for £40, im not sure where he got it from but i know he had it in his clio, its a pretty decent fit in the back of my pug though. ill try and get a pic up for you. im new to this and modifying cars, so will be looking on here for alot of inspiration and advice.

Personally, I wouldn't use a roll cage not designed for my car.

It isn't designed to be in there. A roll cage should strengthen the chassis because it's designed to stop flex. 'Old Git' will have more in-depth input but basically I can't imagine a cage designed to fit in a Clio supporting a 206 as it should do. Assuming we are talking about a proper roll cage? Not a show cage.

you need to find what the resistance of the airbags are and get a resistor to fool the ECU into thinking they are still there.
weve been asked this before for a 206 but couldnt help as no amount of googling turned it up
