Hey all,

I'm looking for a roll cage for the car. It's purely for a cosmetic look.

Something like this

Any ideas where i could start to look?

IIRC some insurance companies won't be happy if you fit either cosmetic or functional roll cages - prob worth checking :)

Agree also.

A cage for show is something I will never understand in a million years.

Its a purely functional ugly thing, might as well fit a bull bar while your at it.

Different strokes though..

The insurance hike is massive with almost all companies.
I can add 20% BHP for less than the percentage loading from a roll cage :)


Renault and Ford are working on a new small car for women.
Its a combo car --
Theyre starting with the Renault "Clio".
Then adding luxury features from the Ford "Taurus".
The result will be sold as the "Clitaurus".
It only comes in pink.
The main benefit of the new hybrid: the average car thief wont be able to find it, even if someone tells him exactly where it is.

his insurance company dont care. his last car (impreza type r) had a spec sheet longer than both my arms and still was fully covered.

someone offered me a black one late last year from here but i cant remember their username.

possibly one of the usa forum members might be willing to ship?

In my experience there's always a difficult compromise with convertibles. A roll bar with decent protection will prevent the roof operating correctly, so people end up with something too small, and too close to their head. Especially tall drivers who have the seat on the rear most setting, and in some cases re-mount it.

I've seen (and owned!) many cars where the roll bar makes the car *less* safe due to the proximity of the back of the drivers head to the bar. A whip-lash kind of accident where you're rear-ended is statistically far more likely than you rolling it.

Have you looked at removing some of the foam from the seat base to get you lower down in the car?

I had one, think it was Spoon. Looked like the pic though, but black and not welded across the lower bar, it was bolted.

Was wrapped in thin foam too.

I needed it as I'm 6'4" and with a helmet on my head was well over the std roll bars.

It also stiffened up the rear of the car in the process.

The only issue is that a glass windowed roof wouldn't fully retract as the glass wedged against the bars.

Insurance was no problem .. but then I had a lot of mods already.

A bar like the one pictured would not cause the unsafe issues garyo mentions, as the only way to hit your head on a 4 point is to get out the seat, stand outside the car and headbutt it.

A cage for cosmetics, seems like a paradox to me.

yeah they'll fall out through the gaps.

I keep all of my cosmetics in the secret compartment.

Or have I missed the point? :p

Lol^
I like the cage look.
But are guys saying the cusco won't work?
Also why would insurance bring your rate up...it's a "safety" feature.
That's like saying "oh you have airbags...20 bux more pls"

Perhaps from the insurance company's point of view, it's better if the occupants are killed than injured.

And presumably, air bags increase the cost of any claim.

Looks like a cusco 5point. I want one too but they're not cheap, i think around the £800 mark.

Insurance companies (and VOSA) don't like them on road cars where the driver is not going to be wearing a helmet as it introduces a steel bar into an area where the driver can easily hit his head in any small incident.
