No sir, I've never built one and don't have the proper tools for that.

We towed the car to my buddies shop in Hamilton where it will be done this week.

Yeah it's good so far. I definitely would of liked the main hoop tighter to the car, but it's very hard to get complete welds that way.

So it may be a little tight to the driver, but I have no idea yet since I haven't been able to sit in the car with the seat and a helmet yet.
