Bit more cage progress. Just needs welding out now for the Engineer to approve on Friday.

Seatbelt mount slugs. High tensile bolt cut down, drilled out, then tapped to suit. There are two of these per side (top/bottom)

8mm hole on the outside to plug weld to slug.
Image


19mm hole on the inside.
Image


Slug inserted (not yet welded in)
Image


Area to be plug welded
Image


Done

Some more tricky notching by brooksy. He cut the first notch by hand, then set up the baileigh notcher (thanks Criddy!) to suit. He then welded a temp jig to the table to make 3 more the same. Worked perfectly! Next was to mirror image the setup and do 4 more.
