Roll Bars

Over the last couple of weeks I have got the driver and passenger side roll bars completed. They are a hoop with a third leg, 3mm wall thickness tube. The third leg gets welded to a plate that bolts through the boot floor and through the chassis underneath. Once the leg is welded to the plate the only way out for the leg is down and out, yet it is too long to pull out so it needed to be cut and sleeved. The sleeve is 4mm wall thickness chromoly tube and bolted through with M12 bolts.

After tack welding the third leg to the plate and the top bracket to the hoop in the car, it all got pulled out to be fully welded and then the welds blended out smooth and ready for finishing. These will be black and I think I will get them powder coated.
