Roll Cage

All of the remaining interior trim and dashboard elements have been removed to allow the installation of the rollcage.

The dashboard took a morning to remove and was quite straightforward.  How easily it goes back in remains to be seen!
The car was winched onto a trailer we hired for the day.  We took it to Roll Centre who are fitting the cage for us.  The car is so low that extra ramps were needed to reduce the angle onto the trailer and stop the car grounding.
The car had to be put onto the trailer backwards in the end so the weight distrubution was correct.  The trailer bed should be flat under its own weight and the hitch end still be able to be lifted easily.
Off we go on our first towing experience!
