Autopower 6pt roll cage install

Hey guys,
I got my cage put in the car but don't have any mounting hardware? Any suggestions on what kind of bolts I was going to use? I was going to use some 3/8 hardened bolts with some big washers and maybe another plate of steel for the bottom? What do you guys usually use? My cage didn't come with any hardware :o

Thanks,
Mike

Where did you get the kit? If it is new, should have come complete. Use a good quality bolt , grade 8 prefered. Use large washers with a steel pinch nut. Plates should be mininum size of top plates or bigger. Make them form the chassis so it does not deform the floor.

o_O might just have to call autopower and see if they'll sell me the hardware kit... I bought the cage from someone on the forum here, already emailed him to see if he knows what happened to it.

Thanks,
Mike

Roll Cage

Tell Autopower that the cage was never un wrap'd till you got it, and no plates or bolts. Autopower says to use grade 5 bolts and nuts because they'll bend if necessary, and grade 8 will break if bent. Doesn't really matter because any bolt is stronger than the floor boards. Sorry about the missing plates, DICK.
