Why Prepare Your Car Before a Custom Roll Cage Build?

When you strip the interior of your car yourself, you not only save money on labour costs but gain valuable knowledge of your car's inner workings. By removing seats, panels, and carpeting, you can uncover any hidden issues or damage that may need to be addressed before the roll cage installation. Additionally, a stripped-down interior provides better access for the fabrication team to work efficiently and ensures a precise fit for your custom roll cage.
