Convertible Roll bar?

Ok, are there any options for a roll bar for a street car/vert that would still allow the top to function?

I looked into this also. I called a bunch of local shops and a few said that they can do it but it was more expensive than I was prepared to invest in this. Also the price is different if you want it to be racing grade, whatever their regulations are.

Give http://www.sneedspeedshop.com/index.html a try, they sold them for quite a while, they don't show them on their site anymore but it wouldn't hurt to give them a call and see if they still offer them or not.

Why waste bandwidth by making a useless post like "search, topic beat to death" you could've just replied with an actual helpful response. Yea he could've searched, but unless there is a direct topic, or few topics, about the thing you are searching for, its nearly impossible to find. I spent 4 hours searching last night and never found the thing I was looking for even though a bunch of threads came up.

Does this make you happy? https://www.rx7club.com/search.php


This is a lazy question by a member that should know better. And don't assume that because your search prowess was only 2" long last night that he has even searched.

If you can find a place that will do it properly locally then its just as good as ordering one, and probably cheaper.

I know quite well how the forums work, I've been around since about a month after the forum first started, and I have always had a problem with jerk offs who post "search" instead of actually trying to help people, no matter how many times the subject has been covered. It's easier for you to tell yourself in your head "man this guy is stupid, he should've searched" than to take a minute of your time to actually post this thought.

I'm probably one of the most helpful people on this board, regarding the things I know, but I don't suffer fools gladly, and you are one. It's funny how you whine like a little bitch about wasted bandwidth, yet the whining parts of your posts are the longest wasted bandwidth on this thread.

Done with you, kid.

Would they be able to make them without the car being there (like, off a kig)?

May I ask how much it ran you?

it seems to not interfere with your top operation

Probably. Call them, though, to make sure.

$575 with stainless steel mounting bolts. $550 without. However, that was ten years ago. I doubt that prices are the same.

No problem with the top.
