Can anyone recommend a roll cage fabricator? I am looking to track prep my Fiat Uno and would need a roll cage fabricating and fitting.

hi Mark

some advice from my friend & renowned race car expert John Brown (John Brown Restorations in W Sussex)



"Hi Guy,

depending on whether a bolt in or weld in cage is required I would use the contacts listed below:

1 Enterprise Court,

Studlands Park Avenue,

Newmarket,

Suffolk,

Also look on the Demon Tweeks website:

They have a range from various manufacturers and useful information.



Weld in:

Baird Close,

Safety devices cages are very nice bolt in kits which allow you to meet alot of regs stipulated, but are also nicely put together cages.

I fit my own cage which i purchased from safety devices. They do come with mounting plates etc, which i have to be honest i never used and made much larger paltes to weld into my car so it braced into a large surface area. This is well known if you search online. If you need to pass regs, scrutineers to like to pick up on how large the foot plates are which weld into the car.

As for weld in cages, i know a company called Garage Sinister and they have their shop very closeby to a weld in roll cage fabricator. Can't remember the name of the company, but if you contact Garage Sinister they can handle this for you as they prepare alot of cars for their clients.
The work i have seen from their cage fabricator is top notch and you have the ability to spec as you want, not that expensive either considering the work they do.

Bolt in cage probably circa 500, but you could end up closer to 900 depending on spec(that was for my car) and a weld in probably 1000-1500 depending on spec etc

Hope that helps a little more, good luck
if you want a contact email address pm me and i can pass on my work colleagues details as he is affiliated with the garage

Thank you for the replies, I contacted Safety Devices and they won't supply a cage for a Fiat Uno anymore, however luckily I found a ex cup race car for sale with a Safety Devices cage fitted which I have since purchased to remove the cage and fit into my car.
