to fit the proper door bars. if you're not going that route, forget the cage, get a roll bar. miatacage.com has some of the best cages I've seen, they hug the roof/a-pillar really close, and give great clearance for the dash bar.

You're going to be wearing 6-point harnesses every time you drive the car, right? Have you ever seen a crash test dummy wearing 3-point belts in an accident? 3-4" isn't going to do ****.

Perception is not always reality. Cages are for trailered race cars. Your car is a street car. Get a rollbar.

If you do put in a cage make sure you end up with something that is legal in at least some legit racing class. If you ever go to sell the car and the cage is not up to snuff you really, really limit your target demographic...especially since you are welding it in there. Do it right or don't do it

Read the rules, they definitely don't look kindly on spamming till you get your required post count. In fact its a bannable offense.
