You had to knock the chick out to get her in the back of your car? That's HOT.

I have a weld in bar from S&W Racing, but I had to modify its design a lot to get it correct for road racing. They do mostly drag cars, so their designs tend to lean towards NHRA. But after all the work, I'm happy with how it came out.

Do you want a bolt in or welded one? The autopower doesn't fit well with sunroofs if I recall correctly.

Leo Capaldi does cages for the spec focus and I'm sure they could just do the back half for not much money. I liked his builder because they tie into the B pillar.

I know there is a good custom builder in Akron.

I would have thought you'd have perfected your welding skillz by now and would be doing this yourself.

I couldn't remember...

That said, welding is ALWAYS the best option for true track competition...

Just my opinion...

I'm think about just welding it in and doing it right, my welding is alot better but I still need the piping kit.
