Lightbulb autopower roll bar height

i am building my own roll bar and i was wondering if somebody with an autopower roll cage could give me the height of the bar from the roof to the floor. i am building my own because i do not like where the autopower cage bolts to the wheel well. i want to run the roof line and tie into the shock tower mounts, thanks

not to sound like an ass, but if you are building a roll cage, why not just meausre it in your car? as its going to be all custom.

my concern would be where the roll hoop bars connect to the floor. I would make sure the floor attachments are attached to the side frame rails and unit body beams,as well as reinforce the floor with steel plates larger than 5 inches square. I remember seeing a golf roll and the roll hoop bars poked thru the floor boards on a very slow roll over.

But I'm sure you've done this before and are great at that craft. My hat goes off to anyone who has the guts to do that kinda project. good luck and send us some pictures when its done.

im interested in knowing the height because i would like to see how big the hoop is so i can slide it in the car in one piece. the door opening is much smaller than the floor to roof height and do not want to cut the bar into two pieces to assemble it in the car. i am making subframe connnectors that i am going to tie the bar into

Is this for competition usage? I don't think the rear braces can have any bends if it is. If it isn't for competition I think the Cusco runs the roof line.
