Holy tubes!!! The underside looks great, but how does the top side look now? Lol.
It didn't dawn on me until just as the pics started loading that this was bad news.
Sucks.........hopefully windshield frame isn't too bad.
other pics on my build thread... no roof damage at all....
is the story of how all you managed to do the on the roof inspection on the other thread too?
I made my 4th and last attempt at a hill climb, and I made it, but right at the top it dropped into the climb from around the corner... my climb at the top was right between 2 trees, and the angle I was at, and the drop there was too much. I basically planted my front end into the other trail, and rolled it to the left... coming to rest above the adjacent climb. my son and I were both hanging from the seatbelts. we got him unbuckled first and a friend lifted him out, then I unsnapped and fell to the roof and climbed out my "window" area.
Took pictures, then began the recovery...
it really was a slow roll. just held on for the short ride.
Glad you guys didnt get hurt
that is some pretty impressive tube work.
is there an in car cage as well as the under car bars?
just the rear cage for now... I hate exos and the brat is tight inside, so I'm still looking at what I want to do....
God what a long way that BRAT has been since sitting in my yard on a trailer way back when. . .
Lol, I was looking at the first pic thinking, wow, pretty cool stu... is that the ground "above" the brat?
Hope it didn't damage you guys or the car too badly.
I remember seeing it in the driveway very shortly after he got it with a hole cut in the bed/rusted out and the gas tank removed maybe? I knew he was up to "no good" in a good way with the look he gave me when I asked him what his "fix" for that was going to be. Heck its a completely different vehicle from when he got featured in Subiesport even and back then it was awesome.
yeah, when I first got it, there was a few minor dents, and a hole in the bed where a battery had sat and leaked for some time... the gas tank was totally varnished up... had sat for probably 13-14 years...
it got a 4/3 Ozified lift in the beginning....
I don't even know what to say. That's some seriously nice work. Very inspiring. I am going to be doing something like this in the next year or two with some subframes for the EJ swap into my Hatch. I am doing EJ suspension rather than solid axle, but I expect it to be similar in construction requirements.
I don't really like exoskeletons either, but I really want a roof rack tied into the frame. The Hatch isn't quite as space limited as the Brat, but similar. I think I am going to route the up-tubes through the interior and out the roof and the cross-members will be on the exterior of the roof. The rack will attach to the cross-members, so I will have an integrated roll cage and rack mount. Beautiful work, thanks for sharing.
