Fall is settling in and am working on the many things on the list to get the car ready for racing with the VSCCA once again next year starting in May. Designed the roll bar to meet SCCA rules so it will also by legal to use in any vintage racing sanctioning body. The belts will attach to the seat tube that is under them that is 10-degress lower than my shoulders.

It is constructed of 1.750 DOM - .093 wall mild-steel tubing. Drove the 1800s to a car builder in MA that constructs chassis' for sucessful late-model stock cars and modifieds and had the main hoop bent and also got enough extra tubing to make up the diagonals and seat belt bars. Brought it all back to the shop to notch, fit and weld it all together. Two pairs of diagonal tubes will be added behind the roll bar bar next.
