I talked with James today - RRT is out of the cage business. Not surprisingly, he recommended Piper.

We actually bought the car north of Philly, so I supposed going back up there is not out of...

Reviving this thread again...would prefer to rent or borrow if possible. We need to roll the fenders on the LeMons Mustang, as tire-rub is pretty bad right now.

Thank you. I completely forgot about RRT. Have you worked with them since Wayne left? He was a go-to for my previous e36, but I know he left the shop and moved to FL(?). If they're still do the...

Roll cage shops in NoVA that aren't Piper

The new-to-me Lemons Mustang has a full cage, but after inspecting it this past weekend with my teammates, most everything forward of the roll bar won't work. We need a shop to do a new halo bar,...

Awesome! Your wheels - 18x10 Apex SM10? I'm definitely doing a square setup, and the SM10 or something from Titan7 seems to be the logical choice.

Sort of a BMW - '22 BMYota Supra

I'm torturing our definition of a Porsche/BMW forum with this one, but a '22 Supra 3.0 Premium came home with me this week. Clearly, this will be a better candidate for OLOA than the 944LS. There...
