Kirk Racing 6 point rollbar

The fit of the bar was good. The bar going beside the seats could not have fit better.

This is a great bar for someone wanting to stiffen the front to rear of the car. The car has a more solid feel now.

Six point rollbar. Very similar to the double diagonal bar except with the addition of an optional horizontal bar behind the seats and door bars. This bar is Solo I approved.

The bar fits great. The optional door bars hardly get in the way of getting in or out of the car. If you or your passenger use all of the seat travel do not get the optional horizontal bar. This bar further strengthens the main hoop

The car is a lot more solid. This bar allows more chassis rigidity than anything on the market with the exception of maybe a full rollcage.

Over 30 minutes to remove completely

Kirk SCCA approved rollcage

Full 6 point SCCA approved bolt-in roll cage

The main hoop fit well after removing the carpets, gas tank shield and miscellaneous items like seats, seat belts, convertible top, hardtop, etc. Once the main hoop was installed and bolted down you install the top bars, and bolt the front and side crash bars to the main structure. The side bars came un-welded, presumably so that it will fit better. Well, that's a big presumption.

The side bars were so poorly formed that I have declared them unusable. They didn't come close to fitting the contour between the door and the seat, so I ordered some DOM and bent my own at my brothers shop. I guess it must be hard to manufacture a cage without the car to fit it to, piece by piece. I'm not overly disapointed, because most race equipment is "fit as needed"
