you will want one bar from either the right or left front top of the bar to the opposite side rear leg could use a pair, but one will be fine for your purposes.

are you going to larger front brakes to account for the LS3?

i hope your building a 10.5 or slower car because at most tracks that cage wont be legal. i'm pretty sure it would save some ones life. but here in Tx and Fl. its not legal.

Death trap :( This cage is dangerous in case of front or side hit. It might only help while rolling over.

Most Racing clubs require the main hoop diagonal to be one piece bar that goes all the way from the upper corner to the opposite lower corner of the cage. The shoulder harness bars are the ones that are cut. The diagonal bar is very important if you roll your car. But if you aren't planning on racing it really isn't a big concern (you'd be in a ridiculous expensive racing class anyway, having the V8 swap).

Possibly invest in a milling machine, carbide hole saws and end mill tooling. Duplicating brackets and drilling would be much easier, that is if you continue to do custom cars. Kudos to you for learning new skills under the microscope. Keep up the great work!

Hey Ben, regarding the strength and protection the roll cage has to have... It's best to bolt or weld it to the frame not the floor pan. Also, check the support design nascar uses to ensure the driver is fully protected in a roll over. Right now you have no driver door protection and integrity strength on the right side. Build it to withstand a high speed impact and rollover that will save your life.

nice roll cage for a first go. I suggest Urchfab's channel for some nice roll cage fab, as he gets his really close to the roof/walls for a much better look.

Roll cage... Google has some great ideas on e30 roll cages you could just replicate it I mean if you do it why not do it right like it should be done I believe in you just don't be in too much of a hurry do your homework before just slapping some metal together it may seem like I'm criticising your work but in the end it's gonna be worth the extra efforts love your channel love the work you do but I believe you can perfect your talents

Search for the BOQUINHA channel from Brazil. He just ended one E30 right now in his channel! Prepared for drift! Amazing job u too!

I’m so surprised you don’t use air tools more , rather than battery ones .
I’m amazed the drilled isn’t dead with drilling that tubing .
Love your builds , keep it up 👍

Vtuned, I like the color that you chose for your BmW. Everybody does red, black, silver, etc. Car clean Guru has an M3 in the same color and I think it really looks sharp!

I would have suggested that you curve the back of the roll cage behind the Recaro seat to allow the cage to accept the seat if a taller person would drive your car, i am worried without the steering being in, the space may not be enough.

What Fred said,, in case you have not seen, your viewers re genuinely concerned for your health and well being..keep it safe, be smart and if something does does not feel right, stop and reassess. Other than that..good work for building a roll cage without knowing how to build one before, you got the smarts kiddo.

It's just a roll bar, not a roll cage. Add some tubes to the a pillar to make it a roll cage. And maybe some tubes between the seat and the door.

Your doing a phenomenal job! I have one suggestion when separating the tie rod end from the spindle, try one solid wack to the side of the spindle where the tie rod goes in, it shocks the tie rod and 9 times out of ten, just pops out. Try it. I've been a flat rate tech for 45 years, and has worked for me.

Main hoop needs to be at least 3" above your helmet and rear down tubes need to go through the back seat bracing to the rear frame rails as few joints as possible

Everything is coming along nicely... but your cage design is wrong and deadly. The angled bar from behind drivers head to behind passenger seat HAS to be a solid bar, it cannot be welded together. The cross bar for the seatbelts can be cut as it offers no support in case of a rollover. The cage is also too far from the B pillars and too far from the roof, not safe. This cage will never pass any safety inspection. Honestly, for your own safety do some research on how to properly design/build a cage. if you want to see how a cage should be built. He is building himself a death trap. :(

You should continue the center V bars to make it an X. In roll cage building your not supposed to end a tube like that without something supporting the other side. if you where to roll the car all side forces would be transferred to the center of your harness bar. If that bent bad enough it could cause spinal damage from compression.

Can't see for sure, but your tubing looks seam welded You should always use DOM tubing for a cage. It's much stronger, but as long as you are not racing the car, should be OK.

Vtuned is definitely now my favorite channel, and I'm glad to see his subscription number growing, now a very healthy number. I wish he'd use eye protection more, certainly using the drill press with metal spirals spinning off. Even if it's a pseudonym, I suggest he give out a name. We need something to call him by.

Nice job fitting the tubes. However that cage is useless if you don’t run a diagonal from the base of the hoop up to the center. It will turn into a parallelogram in a rollover otherwise. Also certified cages are supposed to be TIG welded.

After your initial fit from when you decided on a 15-degree bend, that roll cage turned out nothing like you originally planned did it?
You accidentally made it too short and too narrow.
A rookie mistake, from which I am sure you will learn from.
PLEASE USE SAFETY GEAR. We do not keep telling you for the fun of it you know.
