Default Roll-bar and sun roof delete

I have 2001 RS.

Finally test fitted my autopower race roll bar. I did specify that car has sun roof (I think, it was long time ago)

What are some of my options for delete if I can't make it work? I'm asking in this section because I'd like to take this car out on a road corse next year.



thanks for all the help

So does it fit or does it not fit? You don't really say.

If you're looking to delete the sun roof, you can weld in a blanking plate. If you want to keep the roof, you could cut down the hoop and re-weld the mounting plates.

Or you could do what I did and rivet a piece of aluminum down to the roof

It didn't fit, but I didn't try making it fit yet either. I do want to delete all that, thought of a manual pop up option of some sort.

Want to stay away from welding at this point.

Rokkit, I like your rs. I want to flare mine but don't know what would be a good wheel size set-up. Don't want to go too heavy. Car will see auto-x and some track. Some weekend driving.

I run a 245x40x17 Hoosier or goodyear (Road Race Compound) and I think I'm going to cut those 60mm s240 flares down to 30mm this winter. You could stuff a 275 under those 60mm flare easy.

I also run a +45 enkei with a 15mm spacer... so it's a bit of offset.

(just for some tire reference)

I just took the door from the moon roof assemble and bolted in down to the opening. There are studs on the door and body that you can use with a small bracket to hold the door in place.

Thanks

Patrick: you make brackets to hold the skin down?

I have no idea what type of racing it will be for. This car was swapped and built years ago, back when I was younger and a big dreamer. Now I just want to get it back on the road and enjoy it. Probably will auto-x and hope to go to gingerman raceway a few times.

I was thinking of 17x9.5 or 18x9.5 with low offset. Maybe +15 up to +30. With 255 or 265 tire for now.

Rokkit, how much cutting you do and did you weld in the rear?

as far as I know most racing series won't let you have a functional moon/sun roof installed. It needs to be blocked off and disabled. So making a spec cage that fit with the moon roof would be odd.

Cut about 2" out of the rears, but mostly due to rust. Could get away with about an inch with the way it's lowered now. fronts are a totally different story though
