Re: roll cage progress pics

Two pieces of advice that Rice701 and I both found the hard way...

1) Cover the glass if you are welding/grinding around it. It will melt and splotch with the hot sparks

2) When you finish the first round and take it out to do the rest of the welding, brace the front/rear hoops so they don't expand/contract with the heat.
