Are people afraid of the grandfathered cage? I've been reading the ARA rules and FIA appendix J section 253 and it made me nervous. The ARA passage about additional cage elements required for 1/1/2020 combined with the passage in article 8 about cage modifications being forbidden were concerning to me.
Perhaps someone with more tech knowledge could weigh in?
I had no worries with the cage when I bought it, it was grandfathered. This has been discussed in the Facebook group and checked with tech. This car has sufficiently sized bars so nothing needs to be replaced. What needs to be added is a X or V roof section. Also a windshield vertical bar on each side. I've attached a picture of the two additions that need to be done. I am motivated to get this car sold and on to the next one. People quoted under $500 to have a shop do it.
