    Still need the connectors there, Skippy.

    mine are Competition Engineering and are square tube but as I said they also cut into the floor. My son has some from Heidts for his 69 which look pretty nice but we haven't installed them yet

    I will say, if rules allowed them, I’d add in some SFC’s like Craig’s.

    I'm hoping to get thrown out of the drag strip for not having a cage when I get this 502 running! Have to run faster than 11.49

    Unless you add a low running horizontal bar from the front point to the mid-point I disagree with you. All you have is an inverted "V" structure which will flex open when the rear bites down on a hard launch. There is a reason race cars have full tube chassis with a full cage on top, my friend. Just because your car lacks sufficient power to cause problems doesn't mean you're right! :D Yeah. I went there. :eek:

    You’re just jealous that everyone BUT you, can drive their car.

    I never said a SFC was useless. I’d have them if I could. My cage has low bars that connect the rear main down pipe to the front down pipe. No way for it to flex Einstein.

    Stick to what you know. Disassembly and buying new parts.

    Sorry for mucking up this thread.

    Standard six-points don't have horizontal side bars, moron. Just center hoops with down bars front and back. That DOES NOT replace the need for connectors or full frame. And I am glad you recognize my advanced ability to waste money on parts for a car I may never drive.

    I can’t help it that you have limited knowledge about roll cages. Just trying to learn ya. Only drag racers could be so ignorant about a cage without the proper bars.

    Good grief, don’t give him that. His head is already a melon.

    You know that was just a dig on melon head

    yes, but I still qualify. I know nothing about cages and really hope to keep the car just slow enough that I don't need one!

    So the video was great, but I do have a question. Obviously they have the car on a rotisserie, so do you use a lift with weight on wheels or do jack up the car in 4 points on the frame only?

    In addition as my car is complete. I would think that it's not best to weld on the lower skins unless I remove the carpet?

    I would weld it in as it sits fully loaded. If not, you could end up with a crooked car. Assuming the car is straight as it sits!
