Default Custom extra-tall roll bar

I had an extra-tall roll bar built for my NA before having a full cage installed. Unfortunately, I was stupid and did not take many photos of it while it was in the car.

I really just don't want to see this going to scrap. Asking $100 (picked up in the East Bay).

Specs:
- Totally covered in BSCI SFI padding
- Carriers for stock belts
- Will broomstick basically anyone
- 1-2" taller than windshield frame
- 1-2" farther back main hoop (more headroom)
- Does not work with any top, other than a sheet of coroplast (which works well for a track "lid")
- 1.50x0.120" DOM tubing
- Built by John Pagel of Evil Genius Racing


I've included photos of the backing plates I had welded into my car with weldnuts, so I could put the bar in and take it out in ~10 minutes. The bar could be installed in one of three ways:
1. Make backing plates and drill car
2. Weld in bar
3. Replicate my setup and have backing plates welded in.

Note that my package tray is trimmed much more than necessary to make it easier to install/remove so I could put a top on.

If you lived on this side of the country I'd be all over this. Since I'm 6'6" It would be nice to swap out my HD HCHT bar for this one for track days and then back again. ugh.

Just FYI there's a whole ton of people on Norcal Miata Parts group on Facebook who are local to you, I can send you along that way if you want. Can guarantee you would get rid of this immediately.

Yep. You?

Funny thing is that I'm not that tall. I tried to build a safe dual duty car, and I was always afraid of the proximity of main hoops to people's heads. Now I have a maxed out NASA PT cage and a trailer.

I think I'll try craigslist and Facebook.

Don't trash it yet! I'll set up a ups account this week and all you'll have to do is drop it off with my account info and they'll ship it to me and I'll pay shipping when I pick it up! Zero hassle on you end! I'm a tall man in need of a tall roll bar! Haha
