Also, what have you used to create (if you have) those working drawings from?

Working drawings is a very flattering comment, Matt will tell you that they're just diagrams really!

I actually drew most of it in rhino first (basically a cad package like any other but very good for 3d) and then exported various bits as dwgs when getting parts cnc'd.

I see. Most of the other CAD models struggle to get the proportions right and those are the best I've seen.

Gets better every time!

Can I ask what diameter tube all the cage is?

Ah Ben, glad you like it - you should see the next bit!

Door bars are 38mm T45 and think the main hoop and legs are a bit fatter but maybe Matt could comment more accurately?

What do you think about covering the backs of the seats? - could you drop me an email.

Cheers

Al

The main hoop is 44mm T45, rest of cage is 38mm T45 and then the mounting tubes for seats, column and pedal box are 28mm T45.
