Location is going to vary depending on how you intend on the cage being configured, seat position, etc. I would personally just follow the rules that you plan on meeting test fit the bars, mark their location, and weld the plates to match. I am hoping to work on mine in the next few weeks while on vacation from work, and will be getting some pics. Not sure how useful they will be...

for my main hoop i ran a peice of 2x3 tubing from the frame connectors to the rocker so the was something solid to mount to and the rest of the bars i put on a plate above a frame rail or cross member

I tied my main hoop into the frame connectors using a kicker as well. The downstruts are on the kicker as well. No real good pics but you can sort of see it here in this one.





I have plates welded over the rear framerails for the rear struts to tie into. Cant see them in the photo but they are there. And yes the car is fully painted now..

Car is 100% legal to go 7.50 for now...Cert expires in 08 and will only be 8.50 then. Those are all older pics before the car was complete. But thanks just the same. Was going for the sleeper look not sure I made it though )(/*
