ive been thinking of putting a roll bar in my car once the motor work is done. any problems with a simply roll bar in a street car for never wearing any gear like helmet and such and normal seat belts

Make sure you have roll bar padding everywhere! And set your main hoop as high as you can away from your head, and as far back as is safe.

Mine will be here next week, 8 point 1-5/8" Chris Alston's Chassis Works cage.

Gonna have bent rear struts to clear the rear seats so its safe to sit back there, welded seat back bar, A-Pillar bars and Halo, and welded door bars.

Should stiffen my ride up quite a bit and God forbid I get in a wreck, things should be better for me lol.

These guys are the ones that did the mustang Police Packages for CHP.

Just wanna see how many people on here roll around with full cages and how they look.

I love MM stuff, I mean I LOVE their products, but there is NO WAY I'd spend $460 some odd dollars on a mild steel roll bar.

I got my whole 8 point cage(not roll bar) for $320. Only difference is I have to weld mine, but its good for 8.50 in the quarter.

yeah i love their stuff too. been happy with everything i have bought from them

i will probably go with MM for simplicity of shipping over the border since i can most likely get it for dealer cost from my buddy when he places a large order for mustang parts

I really like this design. Was it a kit or custom?

Have not started on mine, still saving up on paper towel and toilet paper rolls since mine just needs to LOOK like it has a cage:screwy:
It's custom. A good friend of mine built it. There's a purpose behind some of the goofey bends, and if you'd sit in the car, they'd make sense. We spent a lot of time putting the seat in, and taking to out to get the bars right, since I street drive it a lot. Even as small as the interior of my car is, you hardly notice the cage when in it.

That's why I custom ordered my cage with bent rear struts like yours. Got kids and they've gotta be able to sit in back safely with no cage slamming into their hips like the normal bars are for these new edge Stangs.

Cages look good guys! Keep em comin!

Anything fancy like simple die a pillar braces/gussets?

I'll have those on my car fur shur! Because its hella racecar, AND its hella no cowl shake lol
