My car does have overrides and would like to attack harness for shoulder straps. I have done a search but posts are from 01 04 era and will not open. Thanks

I added the down tubes. Yes, they would have supplied more support if angled differently and attached further back but I wanted them hidden under the side panel and I wanted to miss the interior light tube in the panel.

As shown above. It is wise to have it wide enough to fit inside of the rear interior panels.
Next thing: If you are building for any certain type of class, do refer to what the sactioning body specifies.

Same but I added a removable bar for my belts. Pic before I welded in tabs for the bar.

We had another fairly recent thread regarding bolt-in roll-bars where I posted photos of my '65 Fastback installation:

The question is...do you make it permanent, or removable? Does the rear support bars mount to the wheel tub, or through the rear deck to the trunk? It's easy to make it removable by mounting plates, then bolting the base plates to the mounting plates. Also, look up 4x4 interlocking tube coupler.. they are great when building a removable bar, using them on the down tubes.

I installed one from Autopower with a removable cross tube ( for rear seat entry)
The down tubes mount to the wheel tub and you'll need to cut the side panels.

In like everything i am seeing... gave me some ideas and improvements. Did any one have to notch their panels to fit the rollbar? My bar is from mustangs unlimited (bought some time ago) plan to make permanent. Is it better to attach shoulder harnesses to top of bar or lower seat bar? No plans on racing or sanctions Showbar with safety is what i am looking at. Thanks I like what everyone has posted. Wheels turning. (Pun intended)😉

I had to notch the upper sail panels, plus I removed the grilles and vent slide and filled the holes using 1/8 plexiglass. Took almost a month to that. Not sure what to use yet to fill in the space behind the roll bar. Any idea’s?

Changed mine to a removable cross bar after about a year.

I had to notch my panels so to fill the small gap around it I used windlace like the windlace around door edges and such. Hope this helps.

Good looking delete.. where did you pickup the carpet you covered it with?
