    Glad to see your bouncing back Finch after your accident and fair play for jumping straight back in an s-body, i went through a similar situation however yours certainly looked a little more painful!
    Will be watching this for updates always liked this 14.

    Such and unfortunate truith, this was advertised for a bargain price and didnt sell. so glad its gone to a good home.

    I think it needs something more special than a standard front bumper

    Bren at Apex had asked me to Trial fit the first S14 cage to see if it all fits in without any significant issues and give some feedback prior to shipping of anymore.


    The Apex caged arrived at 8:30am this morning , superb speedy delivery.

    Very well packaged as well Bren.

    Dash removed tonight ready to commence build of the Apex Cage.




    Dash Removed, Apex cage build started !

    Gearbox installed on sat , not the easiest of jobs with the engine in place and vibratechnics race mounts ! Took us half a day but we got it in eventually !

    We're getting there slowly but plenty to do yet !

    Hopefully have it ready to fire up soon and then can check things over and do all the other bits like the big brakes etc and the roll cage !
