    Dont know of any show cages but you can get proper ones from OMP. They do bolt in ones too IIRC which still require drilling of the car to fit but can be removed.

    Ive always been dubious about the safety issues with show cages tho. My mate crashed his clio sport with a showcage in and it snaped the joint halfway up and the bottom pole went straight thru his passenger seat. They may look cool but personally Id rather pay the extra for a proper one and not risk being impaled
    It would definitely go better with an engine in it

    No offence mate but what is the piont , And going by what SteveC has just said about them they are clearly not worth putting in a car ,
    I would put my saftey first before looks and pay a little extra and get a proper roll cage , But that's just me

    Show cages look cool if done right, especially euro styled (Leather Covered)

    One would look mint in your new purchase lee!
