I’m in the middle of a build. I currently race a 98 mustang in AI and did the cage work ( all of it including bending and welding) myself. It took way too much time fitting and bending every tube just right. I had at least 400 hrs into it. For the e30, I was looking at a Kirk kit. They’ll make any door bar configurstion that I wish and the fitment that I’ve seen is very good. Has anyone used their cage? If anyone has good pics of a Kirk cage in a car I’d appreciate seeing them.
I’m looking to have an x door bar on both sides that protrude into the door itself. The middle of the x will have a vertical bar that will attach to the rocker for added support.
There will also be a dash bar that will be high and tucked behind the dash. I may even fab a bracket to attach the steering column if I want a different steering angle/height. I did that in my mustang and it worked well.
The down bars will most likely be attached just above the spring perch. The plate that the down bar attaches to will surround and be welded to or as close to the shock towers as possible.
A few people in these forums are talking about 1-3/4 tubing. I’m leaning towards 1-1/2. I have to check the rules for wall thickness, but believe it’s got to be .120 for 1-1/2 dia tubing.
Any thoughts? Im really interested in feed back regarding Kirk cages
