SCCA Legal Roll Cages

Not to criticize you Ron... You have raced in a few more rallies than I.

Don't forget the corner gussets- unless Safety Devices started putting
them on all their cages, which I doubt.  A few years back they added the
requirement of corner gussets for the a-pilliar/roof/windshield joint of
the cage.  You also have to have a horizontal bar behind the seat if you
are using the stock Audi seats.  This is to support the seat back on a
two piece seat in the event of a seat failure- and also is not included
on a Safety Devices cage.

Bottom line- if you buy a bolt in, you will be modifying it in some
way.  It still might be easier and cheaper than having an entire cage
fabricated.  Or you might end up like me and have a project that never
gets finished...

84 RallyRabbitGTI (bought because I couldn't finish above)
84 4K Quattro (street car- Hey, It's Minnesota!)
