      • it works but it doesn't (the software).... the upper bar was 9" too long - but everything else was right.... I think it didn't add the distance that you gain in a radius.... dunno, but onward
        the first bar that was 9" too wide (welded it together so I could use it for test fitting)

        seems to fit fine



        new bar fits as the old one


        The new bar in the rear most position



        the more forward position




        a drawing of where I'm going... I think... the bar above the floor will bolt through into the frame that is tied to the frame. It will also bolt to the seat-belt anchors

        battery will go there (behind the passenger seat)


        I'll listen to input - however keep in mind it simply has to work as a belt anchor and tie the frame together.

        more pictures of where I think it's going to land - there will be a forward brace and cross braces

        I really do need to cross brace the frame - that that is a fight for another day

        bender in operation


        this is for posterity.... 3 1/2" to the start of the bend from the clamp on my bender....

        • still learning how to use this.... would be awesome for these brackets


          roll bar plates

          with some bends

          in my old brake - there are advantages to using this over the other brake - the other is good for repetition but set up would be longer (and potential for screw up)

          a couple more brackets... this ties to the seat belt anchors

          • got distracted by life stuff today, but went a little forward
            tabs to bar

            fit then tack the bottom plate


            next up is the cross bars. I also bought the aluminum for the floor pan

            • frame brace



              and weld the seat belt hoop up.... it needs a bunch more tubes, but figured I'd weld when I had a minute


              it also didn't come out easily, which is fine - the tab will need to be pushed back to the to top then bolted in place.... anyway, that's it for tonight

                    Sunday, there was a new kid in the shop - so I demonstrated to her how to properly use those guards. First, remove. Second, walk to scrap trailer and toss in.... #safetythird, #teachemyoung

                            Self-treatment is key. A good life insurance policy keeps the wife happy.

                            usually because they're completely in the way.... then again, we don't get our cars impounded for minor violations (well, everywhere but New Jersey)
