Jon Climo, Performance Metalworks. Dstrbd on here. Haven't used him myself but he comes highly recommended, and has a waiting list :).

Yeh I was shopping around for quotes for a cage and had a look in his shop and was quite impressed with his workmanship, so next week I am getting my cage installed by him.

Speaking of which, anyone know where I can get either T5 or T45 1 1/2 inch thin wall tubing, for a good price?

Right, just organising a southern trip to check out rollcage options.

So far got:
Octane Automotive
Automotion
BJD Fabrication & Welding Ltd (maybe, depends on timing)

Any other places between Napier and Wellington that you would recommend checking out?
