    Hello everyone,


    I am looking for pictures of your 8 pt roll bar and suggestions on installing one in my 1971 Maverick. I am test fitting it now and have a couple questions. first the door handles ar in the way of the door bars unless I bend them. Second Is it better to have the kicker bars go to the Tunnel or the floor? Aslo should i go staight back to the truck floor or angle outward so the rear plates are on top of the rear sub frame? Thanks for any ideas Pictures or coments on how you have done yours.

    Maybe think about removable door bars? your allowed to have as many bends as you want so you can bend it under of over the handle. my kicker bars will be going to the tunnel and rear bars over the rear subframe..don't have any pics as mine wont head to get it this week. going 10pnt in mine.

    i dont have many pics of the 72s cage and none of the cage in the 71 maverick. ill try to take some pics of the 71 mavericks cage and post them.
    i try to have my cages be both legal for drag racing, and road racing. i dont have any plans to go fast enough to require certification.
