I started to weld in my cage. It seems that the rear hoop that goes back to the rear Fire-wall doesnt line up with the center hoop at all.

If you look closely you can see that the notch doesnt line up with the top bar. What is my best bet to remady this? Does any one have a picturre of a cage already installed that they can post?

They are notched exactly the same. Im going to renotch them. I found out that the inside needs to be clearanced farther back. So I get to use the good ole Die-grinder. I am in the process of tacking it together right now. Im hoping to get it finished tack this week, and then next week, I can work on full welds.
