    Got a nice response back from Chris Yandel from VSC


    "Typically those gussets are homologated as part of the supplied cage kit, and as such are supplied with the cage kit. We design and homologate our cage kits with Custom Cages who supply us the kits.

    found this pic
    Here you can really see that this gusset is made out of 2 pieces.


    But this one in blue box seems to have no weld along the curvature. The heat should leave it's marks. But on other gussets on this frame it seems that they are made out of 2 pieces.

    so it sounds like VSC doesn't know how they are made either and i doubt custom cages are gonna tell you how they do it for free the two piece is good if all you want is the look but they are nowhere near as strong as the one piece would be plus i think the two piece thing you are looking at is actually a plastic cover to something because if you look where it meets the carbon fiber there is a ridge or something

    Am looking for more plcs of the Dakar Tuareg cage for more detail of A-Pillar/windshield and B-pillar roof curved taco gussets.....

    ran into this diversion..... a street concept.... pardon the detour...

    http://www.autowallpaperhd.com/volks...cept-2011.html

    [Even the stock street V10 diesel is formidable , younger brother has one... can light all 4 tires and go sideways if you punch it... something that the Cayene turbo S that I had, could not do... would love to put either engine in a 914... would be fun.... more likely to see an Iltis than anything powerful in these tight finances,,,]

    OK here is the detail on the Tuareg cage

    gusset-1.jpg

    OK OK Bellboy.... I see what you are talking about where Suvi has posted the pic where it looks like a weld line on the B-pillar gusset painted white... think that is a real gusset though not a cover... not positive though....

    Those guys have infinitely deep pockets and do things the average shop can't do.
    It looks to me like they are deep drawn and then trimmed into shape.
