First cage I ever built

A buddy I decided to try and build our own cage. Its goin pretty good so far. Tomorrow were gonna try and finish up the bracing in the back, the side upright bars and the V or A bar up front. Tell me what you think so far.

My buddy is 5'10" and its about 4-5" above his head. I'll measure it today. We left a little room for different height peoplea and just in case you wanna wear a helmet. I thought it looked high from the rear also. But from the front it looks perfect....its also all sqaure and even. The metal is 1 1/2" .95. Were gonna tac it with a tig and mig it when were all done.

Looks good..... I think the rear needs to be a lit shorter. Most cages slope down in the rear. That is why it looks so tall.
