    Show me your (half) cages - the more civilised, the better

    This is the latest in a long line of threads starting with "Show me your ..." by me.

    I'm looking at losing the rear seats and fitting a half cage with harnesses (to go with my buckets). However, having just returned from the 'Ring with two friends who have VERY track-focused cars, I've realised that I like a bit of comfort for long drives.

    Therefore I want to keep as much interior trim as possible to make the car liveable on the motorway.

    Most installs I've seen have tended to ditch loads of the rear quarter and boot side trim, which I'm not keen on - not least because I love my HK stereo.

    I'm keen to see how others have dealt with this, and which cage manufacturer/installer they've used. As an example, the below style of cage would seem the least 'intrusive', but I don't know what its merits are.

    Those both look like really good installs, and in-line with where I'd like to go.

    Thank you. I'll drop you a DM shortly regarding the yellow cage.
