    STI Roll bar completed

    I just did this 2 weeks ago. STI Roll bar with all interior intact with no cuts except carpet. Material meets SCCA Specs 1.5"x.125" DOM. Bar is custom bent for this car and and has diagonal and horizontal bar. Driver is a rather big man and needed extra room. Sometime next year owner may make this car into a dedicated racer and we will finish of the bar to a cage.

    No, just wire fed, did not want to add extra expense to tig. It is about an additional 30% more.

    looks tough, i love the tiger stripes on clean DOM steel. did you bolt the tubing support plates into the chasis or stitch weld/box them in?

    It is completely welded in. I really can't mount the roll bar to the optimum location if it is bolted in. Bolt ins have to allow room for the opposing plates. If need be, owner could sawzall the bar out and do a little grinding and the car would be back to original configuation. Since I did not cut any interior except carpet, it would be an easy job. At this time owner has no intention of coverting this platform into a stock street ride. Plans are for full race car in a year or so.

    a few more ?'s if you don't mind. did you weld the tubing to the sheet metal, it looks like a pretty hot weld in the pic of the rear seat. if so how did you keep from burning through the thin sheet. and what did you use to prep the surface, on the cage i have done i hated having to deal w/ the sound deadening gunk. thanks.
