Excelent photos Tom.

I'd say it was a fairly big job to get the cage in place.

These pictures have got me worried! Not only because the standards are so high (thanks Tom and Tertius!) but because the seat seems so far back. Where is it meant to go? I sat in mine going brmm brmm and arrived at a suitable position. I'm six foot, long legs (not blonde...) yet behind my seat is a good 8 - 10 inch gap. I've got a joint in the column to lower it, and the gear linkage will have to extended back by 5 inches. Perhaps I just prefer the Touring Car driving position to the Fangio arms out-stretched style.

The seat goes where ever you feel most comfortable. We are all different shapes and sizes. It is surprising how many tall people drive these low cars, I always get comments when I get out of my car being 6' 4".

My steering column has been extended too. I am 6 feet 2" tall. Position is very good. Will extend the steering a little bit more by placing a momo or sparco quickrelease unit to get in the car a little easier.
