View Full Version : Making a faux roll bar into a real roll bar

As many of us have, I am using a faux roll bar, for show only, sorta. Well, I have the rear glass welded into the thing as well as the third brake light but any way to fabricate a piece that can affix to the frame below, perhaps bolted into the frame, and seat below the faux roll bar from the bottom. Then with some serious-strong bolts, bolt through the body and into the roll bar brace. In essence, creating a stronger roll bar and one that might even pass as the real thing.

That "faux" roll bar that you talk about saved two of my fellow CCBCC members when they were slammed into from behind, pushed up and over an embankment and had a subsequent roll over. It may not be SCCA, but it's better than nothing!

And it makes a great place to mount an upper level lamp and comes in handy for pushing your car in and out of a work area.

But it won't make 1000's of Julian fries as far as I know.

I guess my only concern is that it cannot be folded over and act like a guilletine in a rollover.

I have one hanging on my garage wall I am not sure what I am going to do with.

It's been a flourecent lite holder over my work bench since 1985! Course I didn't even have a TR from '80-'05!
