Hello All.
Having fitted a full cage to my Jem , I have a headroom issue.
Has anyone got a race Jem or lowered road car. What I need to know is how low can I put the floorpan. I have cut it out with a view to making up a frame work to support the seat.
Thanks
Ian

If my previous post was not that clear, perhaps another option is for an owner of a lowered Jem or Marcos could measure from the lower subframe  bolt hole on the rear heel board to the tarmac. This would give me a fair chance . Same on the front, perhaps the rear mount. This is needed fairly quickly as I want to make a proper start this weekend now that the weather is a bit better.
Thanks again.
Ian
