I'm heading down to Indy tomorrow with the cobra in my trailer to get a roll bar fabricated.

I brought it home yesterday. The roll bar looks perfect! To fit the tubes in the chassis he had to get tubing a little larger, turn it down on the outside and insert it as a spacer. Anyway it looks just as I would want it in a perfect world. It is not bolted in yet so I can adjust the height to be not too high and not too low..

I also need to paint it. hmmmm....black or silver?

I'll get some pics today.

Default Pic with roll bar

With the roll bar installed, along with the lowering, 16" rims and Hoosier slicks.

It was cold today and the slicks felt like they were rubbed with olive oil but it was sunny and good for taking pictures..

Tomorrow I hope to get the garage warm enough to paint it.

The guy who fabricated and installed it is amazing. It had to fit down into the two tubes adjacent either side of the seat. The tube is aluminum and an odd size. The roll bar is steel. To create a sleeve to make the smaller roll bar fit into the larger chassis tube he had to put the spacer tube into a lath and turn it to the correct size to fit the hole.

I'll drill holes to bolt it in and paint it myself.

Wooo Hooooo!
