Roll cage

Post by billrice » Wed Oct 16, 2019 3:00 pm

Hi all,
I’m looking to put a rollbar/roll cage along with racing seats and harness in my VW GTI for next season. Any advice would be appreciated and a recommendation for someone who does roll cages in the Boston area.

A couple of suggestions here: https://www.comscc.org/forums/viewtopic ... 55&p=45344

and here: https://www.comscc.org/forums/viewtopic ... 04&p=40696

Most popular seems to be Chris Howard.

Got my GTI back from Chris Howard with a custom welded in roll bar. Very satisfied with the result. A very good price as well. Thanks for the lead Graham!

That’s great to hear Bill. Chris has done many COM cars, always with good results.

You have to link them as this site does not host pictures.
