    Possibly, but the power window mechanisms showed up last week. I’m working on getting one of the rear ones in. I forgot how much of a pain these could be, lol.

        They’re made by Rhodes Race Cars. I ordered them from Summit Racing. The finish is a little rough, but they work.

          Thank you will look into it. It looks good to me. Will you use a pull pin or does it need bolt and nut.

            It gets a nut and a bolt at the bottom and a pin at the top. I’ll completely remove them for street driving.

                  I've have seen a roll bar a local guy has in his car that has the door swing out style mounts used for the cross bar on the main bar so that he can access the rear seat area easily when needed. Only saw this done once , anyone know if it's a legal set up?, I wouldn't do it a full on race car that way but wondering about it in a street heavy/ strip ready car. Would it pass tech?.

                  If it’s on a 6-point style rollbar, it could get by as they don’t tech those too in-depth, but it’s not legal on a 8.50 cage cert

                    Good to know ,I was thinking in a car like i'm doing it would be useful being able to remove it to access rear seat area. I usually only run my car at Atco on Philadelphia Modifiers racing and maybe a test and tune night or two . This Polara will probably see the same.

                      I’ve hauled quite a few people in the back seat. I tell them, if you can’t climb back there, you can’t go!

                        Main hoop ready to go in for the final time. Have to finish the electrical as the rear seat and interior have to be in first.

                          With the rear wiring done and ran through the car, the cage can continue...

                          Can you get the rear seat out? Just wondering in case you have to adjust the rear windows or replace something
