Roll cage builder in Wisconsin

Postby Tiptoe » Sun Sep 03, 2017 8:17 am

Simply put I'm looking for a good cage builder in cheese head land.

The car is our new (to us) C4 Corvette.

Lemme know folks!

Did you find a cage builder yet? I'm near Ann Arbor, MI. I can provide you with pics and references from some of my prior work, as well as an estimate if you're still looking for someone to work with. Let me know.

I THINK we have a shop date.

It was made by my team mate that got hurt in our last wreck. If he trusts him..then I trust him.

On the other hand the lack of communication is...troubling.

So anyways yes, I would love some more info, quotes, and so forth.

The C4 is a weird car...fiberglass floors and all, is this anything you have worked with? I want to make sure its good for everyone involved.

Matt.

Hey Matt,

Thanks for your interest. I haven't caged a Corvette before, but have some experience with Vipers (somewhat similar, except for the 'glass floors.)
Send me your email address, and I can forward you some pictures of previous work, referals, and a rough quote. I do cages as side work (10 in the past 3 years), as I have a regular day job in engineering. I'd like to complete our racing season, and get started on some cage work come November. So far, I've got only 1 customer that I'm lining up for early winter, so let me know if you're interested, and we can discuss time frame, costs, and other details.

Thanks, best regards,
Mike

No I got it. Sorry it was a busy week getting our car ready for Mid Ohio. And the weekend was even busier! (We will post a post race report soon....)
I will get back to you shortly now that our Rush is over. Thanks.
