Carbing/Okuyama 6-point roll bar

[7/17/2001] Reviewed by: Andy Thompson - miataphile@iname.comn

Applicable to: '90 - '97 '99 + 1.6 liter 1.8 liter

6 point roll bar in powdercoated black, consisting of a main hoop, rear supports, and side bars

Bar was purchased used, so came with no instructions. The main par section bolts directly to the floor pan behind the seats, The rear supports bolt to this, and extend into the trunk area to bolt to the chassis rails. The side supports bolt to the main hoop, and extend into the footwells, bolting to the floor pan.

Tricky to install without instructions, as a result I have a couple of extra holes in the floor :(. Some body sealant has to be cut away to install the main bar properly. The bar installed severely restricts seat movement, and only by modifying the seat trim itself was I able to get comfortable (I'm not that tall; 5'11"). The roof just clears the main bar, which is good, and there is no restriction in rearward vision. As expected after the installation of such a serious rollbar/rollcage, the car feels very solid (a late 91 model). Not for the faint hearted!

Difficult to remove without leaving damage
