    Hey Guys

    I want to do track days with my Mustang this coming spring/summer but I will need to have an approved roll bar. All of the roll bars I am finding look like complete ass. Just tubing like it was designed for a jeep. Are there any good looking rollbars for when my top is down...

    Thanks for the help. I will be hitting a 2.2 mile track that is a few mins from my house!

    Roll bars aren't necessarily designed to "look good", they are a safety feature. I'll be buying an autopower cage in the next year or so. They do some great work.

    I would consult with the tech of whatever organization you want to run with. I, personally, would go with a custom built cage/bar. Something you know will do the job if you ever need it. Plus, a custom job usually has a better fit and finish. If you're going with counter stuff: MM, Griggs, Roush, Kenny Brown all make good stuff but just make sure install is per spec.

    So if I was in your shoes here in CO, I would find out that the NASA chief Tech has a shop in Denver and go talk to him, and/or bring my car out for him to see it and make recommendations.

    What organization will you be running with? They usually have a set of tech rules you can find/download.

    This is what I had done for the rollbar in my old foxbody. Its wrapped and baseball glove stitched.
