    Gauging Interest Rally Bar

    So I just got finished designing a rally bar for the 2011 - 2014 wrx and sti. I am looking to see if there are people interested so I can have more than one made up. The reason I designed this is the fact that our bumpers are very weak in two spots and this will protect those spots along with the fact that it looks badass.

    Please note that if you actually go through with selling these, you'll need to have a vendor account to sell here.

    The cost I'm figuring will be around $500 on the high end just an estimate.

    As far as a vendor account could you message me details about that.
    Thanks

    How many mounting points on the bar? What material are you looking to fabricate out of?

    mild steel, chromoly, stainless?

    Chromoly would be lighter and stronger than mild, but is more expensive to buy, and requires careful TIG welding. Stainless wouldn't be very valuable in this application, but chromoly might be worth looking into.

    I'm interested, but will it be mountable on a MY08-10? It looks like it might fit.
    It would also provide a great place to mount my Lightbars.

    I don't want it to be to expensive and welding stainless is not fun. I guy I talked to said DOM would be the best bet for the bar. They make a lot of products for different companies so I trust his input. It will also me powder coated gloss black.

    I will have to see If I can find someone in the area that has a 08-10 to see if it will work. It should have the same mounting locations.

    That seems really high. Might be more interested at a lower price point.
