What did I need in a bar? I wanted 1.75" DOM, but no diagonals. The bar needed to be as high as possible but also as far back as possible to clear my head. On top of that the rear supports had to clear my 8" subwoofers in the parcel deck. Solution: build a custom bar.
Here's my ex-student Gary Lowblad working the mandrel bender. It takes quite a bit of trial and error when you aren't building from a template.
Another specialty piece of equipment to notch the ends of the cut tube.
Stahl Racing builds some terrific race cars. It's pretty unusual to see a little ol' miata in that shop!
Here's Harry helping with the final bolt in. I had to relocate the upper seatbelt mounts completely.
Once I got it back from the powdercoaters it was final install time.
There's the bar in place. I'm very happy with it!
I had to relocate the upper seatbelt mounts and build new cover plates over the cut up trim.
