Default Roll Bar in a '94-'98 Convt.

Hi, I remember seeing a few convertible mustangs with 4 point roll cages in them (one had a thick padding covered in leather, looked siick). Anyone have any pics of them? I was looking at the Wolfe Race Craft 4 points and they look pretty nice. Anybody know how hard they are to install? I have a '96. Thanks.

oddly enough my new roll cage for my 97 vert just showed up. no pics though, it's still in pieces. and its a 6 point not 4.

as far as dificulty, well there is some welding involved with a roll cage. and some measuring. although, being only a basic 4 point, the only things you should have to weld on are the rear support bars. the main hoop will be one piece. then welding or bolting it in (if this is just about looks i guess a bolt in bar is ok, but welding it in is going to be the safest and most secure way )

Thanks for the info, I'd love to see some pics of the car when you get it in. By the way, what brand did you decide to go with?
Thanks, Mike

Went with AutoWeldChassis. They build a lot of racing chassis and rear end parts, also a lot of custom chassis for hot rods and what not. The cage was prices right and looks to be top notch quality. Plenty of welding involved when you order one though, be aware of that. Have someone in mind to weld it up if you don't know how, or aren't good enough to trust yourself welding a structural safety device.

Like I said, you will need to weld on the mounting plates and support bars. The only piece that is all together is the main hoop. MMS or other brands MIGHT have their mounting plates pre-attatched, but the bars will still need to be welded to the hoop.
