After fully welding the cage, we used some high-quality self-etching primer and black chassis paint from our local auto parts store. Then we bribed a buddy to help us lift the cage back into the vehicle and bolted the two stanchion halves back together. Only then did we weld on the stanchion floor plates and drill holes for the mounting bolts. GenRight offers a kit to tie the cage directly to the frame, but our 1⁄4-inch-thick aluminum rockers were in the way. Instead, we drilled through our rockers and used Grade 5 button-head 3⁄8-inch bolts for a smoother underside.
