    I was wondering how much tubing was required to make a 6 point roll cage, I was just needing a few close guesses. & what kind of metal you used, or that i should use.

    I used just shy of 100' of 1.75 .120 wall HREW in the cage below in my webshots. That cage now resides in Dan's '86 and I will be putting something with a little different design in my new rig.
