Check out the following link:
http://www.stockcarproducts.com/index.htm

Go the the "Roll Cage Kits" section under the online catalog. I have used their cage kits before and they worked great.

I have been looking to build a new cage myself this year and the cheapest one I found was through MRT racing products.

We would rather not build a new car from the ground up.I think buying another car would be easier but we've got a Cutlass frame and floor pan. The Car owner/driver wants to use the cage we ran for the last two years.It's
to heavy though the car was 3450# in 2800# class!!The only thing to make it lighter would be take the motor out. That's on a metric too But with that car we placed 4th in points both years.
It had a .030 350 305 heads two barrel intake
and a summit 488 510 cam and pulled 18 inches of vac at 1000.The cars that placed ahead of should have been street stocks with setback cages and not enough vacume.But then our rules are very very loose.

Juni, I wonder if one of those cruiser cages would work on a metric?

Remember, when you price out these cages to factor in shipping. The price on the cages that I had in my post above include shipping. If the price does not include shipping it could be big $$. Also, SCP build their cages specifically designed for the chassis you are using. I used their elite cage in a metric and was impressed with how well it was built and how well it fit.

chevv that #11 cruiser on that page is a metric car but if you look at waht you get with that cage your not getting any kind of deal once you add in shipping and having to put in another door bar you would be much better off going with the scp or csc cage they are olny abour 50 more and they are jusrt what you want and i know that csc will ship free to a business address i had one that i put in cruiser car that i had shipped to work. if you can't do that see about geting some local business to help you out with that a little sponsorship deal if they let you ship it there i'm sure if you have a parts store in town they would be glad to put a sticker on a car for doing no more than recieving a package for you

I hang around the guys at carquest quite a bit so shipping shouldn't be a problem.Good luck getting any money out of them though. I really like the looks of stock car products cage. don't really need the nothing but main cage but for the price for it all it would save us the trouble of having to make the other bars.Plus the passenger side bars look stout enough with some of the drivers around here you need all you can get.

i agree with crosser....your life is only worth the amount you spend on your cage.

Thanks, but now I think we're more in the market for the whole car minus engine. Racing starts in about a month and theres no time to start from scratch because sombody put it off too long.

The guy we're working on the car for is slow as ****. We had the block bored and it's been back at the parts store for atleast 2 weeks and he has yet to go get it.So waiting on him to get the parts we need will take forever.
