Yes, these roll bars require some welding. See below:
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.
The convertibles have a slightly different installation procedure. To provide a good structural attachment point for the roll bar's rear braces, we include reinforcement plates for the convertible chassis. These are welded into place behind the rear seat. These reinforcements increase the strength of the convertible chassis at the attachment point of the rear braces. With a convertible, the top can be lowered and stowed during installation, which then provides easy access to protect the interior and complete the required welding. After all welding is completed, the roll bar still bolts into place, and can be removed from the car as a complete unit.
