Mark, yes everything was moved. The bar is the same height, and of the same material as the FFr bars. I just really like the look of single fullwidth bar, no real intent of racing. I will have a cubby behind the seats now, there are no seatbelt mounts, or rollbar stubs in the way.
Very nice. I was talking with a fellow builder the other day about "if" I was to build another one, I would want to modify the area behind the seats so that I could have a full cubby area - basically exactly what you have built.
Rich, It's about time. You should have told me you wanted the harness bar. I could have thrown it in the box with the bar. It looks great! Have you decided what finish you are going with on the bar?

This sets the overall height of the bar at about 25" off the trunk floor. The great thing about the roll bar kit is that you can cut it down to the length you like and have the rear bar stubs both top and bottom welded in. All the parts are pre-cut and all of the fish-mouths are done. All that's left is to fit and have it welded. Even with a MKIV the bar can be fit with bushing sleeves to allow for the 2" bar
Really like the single bar -- if doing it again I would use instead of dual hoops. However did use Black Chrome color powder coat -- really like the result. Also did same on quick jacks and their mounting tubes to pull things together. Next go around, I will do same to license plate frame and the side vent grills and am thinking about the air cleaner cover and VC's......
Get it finished!

Someone did a trick one with a curved lower bar that hugged the body. I think there is a picture of it at a big speedway in the Southeast??? Not sure how that would effect performance in a rollover though...
