I reallized I did'nt get a few pictures I wanted...I was talking, looking and snapping at the same time....he did a preatty good job on it...I know he removed the dash pad, and knotched of the holes in the dash...then he knotched the dash pad...

Re: roll cage in my Duster....

Looks great!

Might be a stupid or impropper question, but what does a cage like that cost? I have a CE 8-point cage in boxes for my Swinger, but I'm not sure how they're going to fit for a street car. I've been told it costs about $100 per point to have one welded in, just wondering what it costs to have one bent up and welded in?

Thanks!

I think the going price is approx $100 a point...alot of guys charge $125-up per point for a custom cage to compensate for the pices flux in materials...

...this guy told me $1500 for mild steel 12pt...and $2000 for chrome moly...I went for the chrome moly...he also is going to finish my subframe connectors...add rocker bars a 3 piece tub bar, and tie the front strut bars to the shock towers...

Re: roll cage in my Duster....

Wow, $2000 doesn't sound bad at all if he's doing all the other work too. I would rather go chrome moly too. I'm familiar w/ 4130 from BMX frame and forks. It's good, strong stuff.
