Autopower only makes a 4 point bolt-in roll bar for the 98-00 coupes. Does anyone know if that application will work in a 2001 coupe?

I talked to a gentleman named Don at Autopower today and he said he doesn't think the 98-00 coupe 4 point roll bar will work. He mentioned the 01 sedan application might work, if the wheelbase was the same as the coupe. But I'm pretty sure a sedan wheelbase is longer than a coupe and therefore, the roll bar for the sedan would not work.

He does not have any plans to make a bolt-in 4 point roll bar for the 01-02 coupes. However, he said he could make one available. He would need a car for one week to mold up a prototype. The person who provides their car for a prototype would be under NO obligation to make a purchase from Autopower.

so....

Anyone in CA up or providing a 01 coupe for a prototype mold up?


Just playing around with the idea of throwing a bolt in 4 point roll bar in my car. If it happens, it happens. If not, then I can blow that cash on something else.

.....thoughts, ideas, comments?

ICY,
Yeah, I thought so. I told him the only thing different is the bumpers...but the inside panels are the same. Don said "well, my application listed is for a 98-00 so I can't guarantee it would work." He even asked someone else and they said no it won't work....he probably just sat there then came back and told me, no.

So guys, before I throw out some cash for this. Make this NOOB feel 100% confident this will work.


If and when I make this fit. I'm going to call Autopower and set 'em straight.

Whats the point of putting in a set of racing seats when your not racing?

Whats the point of removing a steering wheel w/ airbag only to replace it with a aftermarket steering wheel w/o airbag?
