I bought this one from eBay, and it came literally as a box of parts - all there - but covered in dirt.
The shell needed some major repair and had pieces missing. I found a plastic Knitting needle in a local craft store with same diameter and could easily be fitted/epoxied in.
Joining the existing bars and the needle was done by tacking them in place w/ CA glue, then cutting a slit into both bars, in this slit I inserted a metal rod and after filled with Epoxy mixed with Micro-Balloons.
The lights are from the re-released Frog, and the driver used to drive a Rough Rider, but was promoted to a SC.

My first restore Rollcage repaired w/ Knitting needle How it arrived

Nice! Should be able to stitch up the opposition with that one. Just had to put that one in.

I know it leaves them a bit more prone to damage, but i much prefer SRB's without the front bumper. If anything, one of Rad's stumpy Ali bumpers. I think it looks awesome the way it is
