Hey guys I'm going to install a 6 /8 point roll cage in my car over the winter, what kit did you guys use? I can't find one for a FGMC, will the 70-72 chevelle / elcamino cage kits work? Or will I have to custom build one? What have you guys done? cool

you're better off having a reliable fabricator do it for you, but that's me :rolleyes:

A roll cage?

Plan on some sub 10 second runs... laugh

Are you after the extra safety versus a 6 point roll bar?

I`ve seen kits for a monte some where...been awhile since I`ve looked, probably was the same part number as the chevelle, I don`t remember.

I came to the conclusion that I would have it done by a professional, custom made with nice bends tight to the body, actually seen some ones at local shows that at first glance you don`t see the bars.

I used the Chevelle Kit from S&W 6 years ago. I could not afford the completely fabricated ones I see at car shows at the time. They are typically $2500 to $3500 now for a cage. Mine does the job was TIG welded with swing out bars on both doors.

George Lines had a nice cage in his car, but I'm not sure if it an Alston piece or if he did it himself.
