Anyone have pics of either the 8 or 10 point installed in their K5?
Here's a few pics of mine. I am not finished but this will do for now.
Is that the S&W 8 point? Looks sweet
Its their 10 pt cage kit, but only about 4 points installed at this time. I dont need door bars or the diagonals that connect to the floor under the shoulder bar. These are more for drag cars anyway.
I do need to add a dash bar, and rear supports and triangulate the halo. Im going to eventually add some more bars. Keep in mind, the 3/4" tubing gussets were added by me, not from S&W.
You do want some type of door bars to keep the cage from spreading in an accident. You can run them right against the floor if you want to, but you really do need them for support.
Chris, if you need someone to weld it in, let me know.
Thanks, for the offer Dan. It may be awhile before I get it though. I am really looking for something to protect front and rear passengers though. I plan on making the '83 K5 fully topless soon.
Eeee-Zackly. I hadn't done that yet. I strapped my floor but I think I like the idea of a tube there too.

Here is a rear shot of my S@W cage

try this, was trying to save space.
Do the rear bars have to go down to the wheelwell? Or can I run them All the way to the rear floor? I really don't trust that rear mounting location! I've removed those tubs before and they are flimsey to me! Thanks for the info! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
Is that gonna protect rear seat passengers? I can't tell from that angle.
look here for another set of pics
Where do you get these? Weld in, bolt in? price? durability?

no, it doesn't cover the rear seat. Most of the time when i wheel I'm alone or 1 passenger. I moved and shortened the rear bars and put them on the wheel wells so i could keep the rear seat for street driving the family. If you contact S@W, they can sell you 2 xtra bars and another main hoop so you can extend it to cover the rear seat. I decided not to.
