I had bought mine from S&W Racecars in PA. I bought a 10 pt. With the power you will be making, it wouldn't hurt to get one to make the chassis stiffer.
I used the same one. 8-point. I had it powder coated then installed.Ryan (Strange246) said:I used one from Competition Engineering, 8-pt...With that much power I'd use one, just a street car, go 6 or 8-pt, race car 10+
Thanks man, if you need any help just have to ask....I did modify my rear bars that go into the trunk and the door bars I bent to clear the stock armrests....Subframe connectors are also well worth the time, just make those yourself it's pretty easy...Evan said:By the way, Ryan. I've been watching the progress on your website for well over a year now. I love that car and you do some nice work. I should have looked at your roll bar installation before even asking the question - look nice. -Evan
Yeah the back seat is going back in, not planning on using it but I like the looks of a full interior in a street car, I thought about buying the steel to make the rear and door bars, in the end it was cheaper to modify the kit....If you decide to bend them, be sure to have a bender thats up to it, I used a 16-ton hydraulic pipe bender and I still had to heat it up some to bend it...Evan said:oh - i see - you matched them to the roof line, right? that looks good. did you do it for any reason? are you planning on putting the back seat in or something? I'm just curious. thanks a bunch -Evan
Yup, the rear bars are plenty long, I made the bends and just kept test fitting till I was happy, I ended up running them down through the speaker holes.....the main hoop fit like a glove, I was happy with it all....Evan said:Tom, I checked out that website - thanks, that looks like good stuff.
Ryan - I like that idea - I've been debating what to do with the back seat area. I was thinking about making a piece of sheet metal to weld in where it used to be, but thats an idea - just leave it alone!!! The kit came with rear bars that were long enough to bend like that and still fit? thanks -Evan
