Those Looking for Rollbars & Rollcages

I contacted S&W this week about making pre-bent kits for our cars. They said they would love to. Being they are only 1 hour from me, I am bringing the impala tothem so they can take all the measurements they need. I will be getting an 8 point rollbar. S&W is a very high quality top shelf company. They are no small little rinky dink company. Their name is very big in the serious race car industry. For the qaulity of their work, their prices are very reasonable. The 8 point mild steel rollbar will cost $170, and their shipping charges are not through the roof. They will be ready for orders after I get my car to them next week. Check their website out www.swracecars.com

price sounds good Alex, please post up pics once you get it installed. can they do swing out bars on both sides? mine will still be a semi-daily driver but this could be the incentive to go up a jet size.

rock on, rus

Yes u can get swing out bars. If I am correct, what u do is install the cage completley, and then buy the swing out kit for $35 and cut it in afterwards. Very easy to do. That's what I'm gonna do only on the driver side.

I will definitely be posting pictures after the install. I am going there Wednesday morning for them to take the measurements. So I assume by early the following week my kit should be ready for pickup! Then the install will go on.

You might want to verify whether or not the price includes notching the ends. Bending the tubing is only part of the process.

too bad you can't let them keep your car while they work on this. They might need additional measurements or need to check clearances once it is installed.
