Re Custom Cages - Their cages are spot on, only issue we had was delivery time, but they were open and honest about that. It would be worth giving them a call and having a chat.

I'm not aware of anything off the shelf (never looked) but Scott McMinn seems to have a good rep for cage work just now. He's fitted a fair few cages for guys on here and may be your best option for finding options to suit.

You dont need full FIA approval, just MSA spec'd. See MSA Blue Book for guidance.

It was the safety devices cage I had in my Classic wagon and it's a nice cage. Relatively simple to fit too.

Murdo at Wallace Performance (their fabricator guy) does or can do cages. He did the T45 Custom Cages cage for Fee's old GTR. Was fully certified etc, and survived intact after being dropped on its roof at Knockhill!

No reason, never used him.... just heard he can be very expensive.

I think there are a couple of guys on here that have used him. Definitely Mark Robson that used to race in SMRC.

I don't find him to bad on price got stung buy a other garage that was cheaper and ended up needing head gasket replaced so would rather pay more to get it done right

the only thing with him is the length off time it he has the car to do the work but everything is top notch

Have never used bliz but worth a phone call
