So i was given this roll bar its a standard caterham 7 bar

So my plan is to cut off the original mountings on the thick bar and put a flat bar plate on each end.
Then make a plate the same as cp3 and cp4 and mount them 50mm higher straight above cp3 and cp4 with nuts welded on the inside
Like build a box if this makes sense 50mm high

can anyone see a problem with this

Can i then weld 50mm box section between these boxes with the seat belt anchorage's welded into this bar

Ok so im not sure what to do about the roll bar

so i started making some of the chassis plates and despite what people were saying about just buying them laser cut i actually found the fabrication of these plates very rewarding and satisfying maybe its because there is a bit more work involved or maybe its because i saved money who knows.

so i got these drill bits a while ago its amazing the difference a good drill bit makes

i also got these during this week

If you have the means to do it,cut a hole in the roll bar plates and put roll bar through it and weld it,it will pull like a bast*rd when you do weld it

like the main bar will pull towards the centre
and surley welding it to a flat plate would be better than a plate with a big hole
not really sure what you mean
