So I've been getting pretty excited over the last few days and its not because Santa was coming. Car has been off the road since August and I've finally decided exactly what I'd like doing, and work has begun.

Rear Bulkhead Removed

New Roll Hoop/Cage in place

Dry Sump Tank

Fitting the dry sump tank in the engine bay is going to be an interesting exercise. Its one of the reasons that we have removed the rear bulkhead so that we can get some additional space on the shelf above the tank.

I'll post more pictures as work progresses.

Looking err good mate. So I guess the bulkhead goes back in or is a new windowless bulk head going back in? Interested you went down the cage route, how much does it weigh and where is it from. Are you changing your drivers seat as well?
Hope it's ready for Andlesey.

Best of better luck next year Will.

A new windowless ally bulkhead will go in, as the idea is to reclaim space in the engine bay for the dry sump tank.

Gone done the cage route as it seemed like the ideal opportunity when the clam off and the bulkhead was out. Certainly wouldn't want to have had the new bulkhead fabricated and then changed again in the future.

The cage is a Custom Cages cage from Hofmanns. Only the rear cage, as I'm wary of driving car on the road with front cage as well.

Not sure exactly what it weighs, but from lifting old and new it certainly hasn't added any weight. Sticking with the Reverie seats for now.

Sorry no pictures from the rear. The harness mounts are drilled all the way through with spreader plates on the underside of the car. There are inserts in the beam, so that it doesn't crush when they were tightened up.

I stopped using them for the crutch straps a while ago and went back to a 5 point belt with a bar attached to the underside of the seat.

Going to go back to using a 6 point again next year and have got some of these to fit:
