I would but there is no way i could shell out that kind of cash for a roll bar when I could make one for about 100 and a few hours of my time. My shop uses only quality stuff so it will be good I just need dimensions to bend it up! Plus s&w race cars charges 199 for their roll bar plus an extra 100 for the custom spec bars and 99 for shipping to USA, then u have to pay on top if that at customs so its not worth it for me

Not tryin to put anyone out of business here just doing what will be best for my situation!

Unless this is a purpose built dragcar, theres really no point in a rollcage, if you intend on street driving this car, plan on wearing a helmet, or your just endangering your own life.

I dont have any measurements for you but you could do like user gmagilla did and bend a peice of copper tubing to the correct dimensions and then use that to bend your main hoop from, check out how he did it in his project journal here, he bent his whole cage himself and did a nice job.

if you want the cage hidden have all your dood panels and stuff in while you make up your parts, they will fit in around the interior and if you get it up tight inside it doesnt hang down.
