    I really felt the need for a functional 4 point roll bar but wanted to keep my back seats so my wife and daughter could ride along with me. This bar works perfect for my goals. I wanted to share it since so few are shown on here for spyders.

    I did the design and fitting. A fabricator I know bent the hoop and did the welding plus a little fabrication to fit the rear plates and reinforce the fronts.

    That looks real clean. Im having a local welder make one like this for my 97 spyder. Thank you for the share? How much did yours cost? I was quoted $1400 to make it, powder coat it bronze to match my rims and install.

    Here's what it looks like with the interior back in and padding on the bar.

    I spent about $500 but got a bro deal on labor.

    Looks great does the car feel stiffer going over bumps now?

    I'm sure the car is stiffer but it is hard to say for sure how much. I definitely feel safer driving it hard now knowing I have a little more safety.

    Great job! One of those is in our future too so it's great to see such a clean example that keeps the backseat.
