I built my car using one and I have no complaints about it. Bends were good, strong, clean steel and the price was reasonable.

51 was it a good fit i mean when you put it together it actually fit to the frame and out to the body. i heard one horrer story about another manufaturer that they had to bend or renotch about 1/2 of their bars.

hey weasel sorry to here about your car. Hope you are O.K. Is the car salvagable? I flipped one a few years ago and my cage stayed intact. I'd like to shake the hand of the guy who built mine. I got it used. The car was destroyed but the cage didn't flex or crack. The motor was only 2 weeks old but it was o.k. Good luck with repairs.

I would say it was pretty good, but they all seemed excessively long. You can trim that off the bottom for most of it, but the down tubes under the hood and in the trunk will need to be angled to attach right. Pretty easy though, considering it was my first one.
My brother is a welder and we had it done in a weekend.
