    Default OR have made - Roll bar

    I want to buy, or have made a simple roll bar for the MG. If I buy an old roll bar I'd be cutting and welding it anyways, so if someone has access to a heavy duty tube bender, that would work as well. I haven't priced out the materials yet, nor do I know exactly what I need. I want a simple 4 point bar that I will bolt in with backing plates under the chassis. Doesnt need to meet any sort of regulations, but I would like it to stop me from becoming a pancake in the event of a roll over.

    Lol, that was my first thought too.

    Patience Metal Fab could definitely make one for you. I know there are a couple members with tubing benders, but I dont want to volunteer others' tools and services.

    Make sure it's installed the best way possible too, otherwise it'll just look like this instead

    Haha, it took me a minute to see what you did there. Yup, I plan on installing large backing plates and tying it into whatever i can under the unibody.
