DIY E30 BOLT IN ROLL BAR (Weld-it-yourself kit)
The Garagistic bolt-in roll bar for the E30 chassis is built with the dual purpose driving enthusiast in mind! This was released after customers wanted an affordable way to get our famous roll bars at an affordable price! Well, this is the weld it yourself (DIY) Kit. We did all the hard work for you! All roll bar pieces are pre-notched and ready to weld. Because these come in pieces, shipping is considerably cheaper than our fully assembled roll bars.
This roll bar is made of high strength DOM tubing with 1/8" thick mounting plates for the best in strength and durability. It features a nice snug fit while still retaining the use of factory seat belts.
Roll bars feet of the main hoop mount to the outer thicker area of the floorboard instead of the thin footwell. This helps to ensure a strong mounting point and prevent tear through if the worst should happen. Also included with the E30 roll bar are outer reinforcement plates that help to further reinforce the mounting points by squeezing from both inside and out.
12 M10x1.75 35MM Bolts, Nuts, and Nylon Locking Nuts included for installation. Install with locking nuts on top.
IF THE BACK OF YOUR SEAT IS PAST THE B PILLAR IN YOUR NATURAL DRIVING POSITION YOU WILL NEED THE BENT HARNESS BAR.
These will require welding. These do not come pre-welded. This is the DIY kit. Welding is recommended to be done by a professional who is certified to be able to weld safety equipment. Garagistic is not liable to "fabricators" who pick up a harbor freight welder and attempt this as their first welding project. Please practice caution and common sense in the assembly of this roll bar.
Please note: The main hoop and rear legs are left longer so that you can cut them down to your liking. If you want the main hoop really close to the roof (or you have a non-sunroof e30), you might want to leave them a little longer. If you want the ability to remove the roll bar in the future easier, you would also have that ability since you cut the legs to your liking. Once you cut the main hoop, you can then do the same for the rear legs to adjust angle, position and landing areas.
