What's in the Box
(1) Roll Cage Assembly
Maximum Motorsports Roll Bar
Increase both safety and the rigidity of your 1979-93 Mustang's chassis with a Maximum Motorsports Roll Cage. Intended for the rigors of drag racing, these MM rollcages conform to NMRA and NHRA rules. Designed to fit with the stock Mustang interior, To keep delivery costs to a minimum, Maximum Motorsports designed these roll bars to ship with the rear braces detached. This requires a minimal amount of welding during installation to secure the rear braces to the main hoop.
Designed With Consumers In Mind
Contour-hugging 6" x 6" mounting pads with backup plates, better than any you've seen, sandwich the unibody for safe and strong mounting. The front seats are accessed using Maximum Motorsports bolt-in or swing-out door bars. While both bars meet the NHRA rules, the swing-out door bars pivot outward, parallel with the doors, for easy entry. They can also be completely removed from the car in a matter of seconds! The bolt-in door bars are designed for easy initial installation (no welding), but are not intended to be removed.
Unlike some roll bars, our rear braces do not extend rearward of the centerline of the rear axle. This design maintains a crush zone at the rear of the car for optimum safety.
High Quality Construction
MM roll bars are uncoated, bare steel. For a high quality finish, the installer should paint or powder coat the roll bar after the welding is completed. Made of 1-3/4" diameter by 0.134" wall DOM tube (much stronger than the more commonly used 0.120" wall ERW seamed tubing).
During installation the rear braces are bolted to the main hoop. This keeps the rear braces precisely aligned to the main hoop, allowing all welding to be done before the roll bar is installed in the car. This means you do not need to remove your car's interior to avoid damaging it while welding. To conform to the NHRA and NMRA rules, a qualified welder must use either the MIG or TIG welding process to weld the rear braces to the main hoop. We recommend that you get your own copy of the latest NHRA rules by calling them at 626-914-4761.
I recently purchased this kit from Scott Grimes, who BTW is awesome, The overall finish on the kit was amazing. I installed it with minor modifications over a couple of day period, my only complaint is this. I have the complete Stifflers FIT system also a GREAT product but due to the Jacking rails you cannot just bolt in this cage. The two outter most bolts do not clear the jacking rails. Also while the kit has all the hardware it would make your life much easier to purchase 3/8 1.5" bolts as the 1" seem too short in some cases. This is mainly a problem where the floor pan has its indentations it leaves you with maybe 2-3 threads coming through. All in all this is an excellent solution with minimal welding required its a true DIY kit but you might need a hand with getting it in your ride without scratching anything. I did it alone so it can be done but did chip my powdercoating in a spot!

Everytime I have delt with LateModel, it seems to get better and better. I have had all positive experiences which is much more than i can say about Summit, or American Muscle. I like the mom and pop shop feel i get when i deal with LateModel. We had a family buisness turning wrenches and a huge part of our success was customer service. Specifically treating every single female as how we would want our sister of mother treated when going to a buisness. We were always more than fair, accommodating and made sure to make all of our customers leave with a smile. And it worked. 30 years later my brother is still in buisness. Yesterday, I got that same type of treatment by Ian. Thank you Ian, you really went above and beyond like this was your personal buisness. Late Model, you just def locked in another lifelong customer thanks to Ian. Semper Fi
