Re: Roll cage/ mini tub
I have a couple threads for my cage and mini tub here. A few thoughts...
When you say cage, I assume you mean at least a 10 point. If the shop will be running the cross bar in front, I'd suggest opting for the bar through the inside of the dash. Gives you more room and a cleaner install.
If you plan to keep the car "stock suspension" (factory mounting locations) for a class or other reasons be sure you specify that with the shop beforehand. You may need to move your shock mounts inward, depending on how much tire you want. If you're not concerned about retaining stock suspension, no worries.
I assume you're providing the shop the wheels and tires you plan to run, to build around them. If not, you should do that.
Depending on the wheel/tire combo you plan to run, the shop may need to end up moving the springs inward. If that's needed, your OEM fuel tank will probably need to be narrowed, or a fuel cell. I went with a narrowed OEM style tank. Either way, just more money.
BTW, I grew up with the head of motorsports at DMC racing (Mark). He might have left recently, but if he's still there tell him Jimmy from his hometown said hey.
Good luck and post up some pics when you're done.
