Might ask the Mrs, if you can take some time for that, so you can get it all painted before it rusts on ya.

As John Snow says... WINTERS COMING.

I just saw this. I painted it as it was for the rust reason.

I was very unhappy with my b pillar placement. I couldn't put my seat back the whole way so I have been somewhat cramped since the cage install.

I cut the b pillar hoop completely out and relocated it further back. I initially wanted to keep the ability to put the rear seats back in and I placed it over the body mount in case I never tie into the frame. Now I have it placed where I can tie into the frame easier and there will be no leg room for the back seats. I removed the rear seat belts too so it is pretty finalized now.

I have plenty of leg room up front now and that is nice! I did not take any pictures of the progress. I still have to tie it into the upper seat belt mount on the pillar for added support and would like to tie into a lower portion of the b pillar sometime.

I like how you bolted the basket to the cage with the pads. That’s a good idea.
