with a center bar welded at the top rear bar and going down to the passenger leg well and bolted down there
I knew someone that had these sidebars made with a hinge and held with a clevis pin. Made getting in and out easier.
I can always get in but have to crawl head first over the bar out. That never wears well on my psyche.
Thanks for posting the pics. I always find roll cages interesting since everyone seems to make them a little differently.
I never thought about using a metal plate under the brace through the window?
It was my understanding that the tech people would not allow plexiglass as a substitute for the glass window?
My head is still in a rubber grommet around the bar going through the glass. I have a mental block on that subject?
I have not had time to post anything for a long time, so i thought I would add some more info about the car. We rebuilt the front suspension including having the a-arms re coated, new ball joints, tie rods, new aluminum Hubs from Dennis Quella, along with his Aluminum Koni's which I had talked about earlier. Had the steering rack rebuilt, all new bushings, bearings etc.. Also increased the size of rotors
Also had a fuel cell custom made to fit in front trunk. There was an old style bladder type fuel cell in car when I got the car in the same location, but not legal to use any more. So I ordered a new one from Fuel Safe. When I received it it looked great but the filler spout was to tall so had that switched out for this flush mount style.
Sorry that picture was wrong one
You can also see we have the sway bars installed
You can also see the double oil filter set up next to the dry sump tank
To what size were your coolant pipes increased?
belt driven water pump or something different?
The inside dimension was increased about a 1/4" on each. Belt driven water pump
