ya that cage would be my 1st choice but at over 3k for a rear BOLT in cage doesnt make alot of sense to me.... oem is my 1st choice but think the cage is a little over priced...i believe the seat delete alone is another 3k.... none the less your car is amazing sir!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Since you are in Sac I would go to Tolle Fab. He is who most of the Speed GT guys have fly out to do their cars and he is not that expensive. Does very nice work.

Yea they are for extending to a full cage. They are supposed to have black plastic caps, but the powder coating company threw them away. I was pretty pissed. Still waiting to get replacements. I think I have all but one now.
