Autopower Rollbar - SOLD

After finally acquiring a Hardtop, I now have a really nice Autopower Rollbar that has been painted 202 Black f.  I will also provide PDF's of templates to use to tape to your plastic pieces so you can cut them to fit perfectly.  This item is kinda big and a little heavy, so I'm not sure how much shipping will be.  So, I want to get $350 + shipping.  In this particular case, I very much prefer local pickup.  I will look up ways to ship it and will calculate quotes once someone is ready to purchase.

Here are some pics of it around the time I installed it.  I'll take more pics once I'm able to (Right now, my car is up on the lift and I'm in the process of removing other things.

Anyway, PM me any questions you may have.  The pics above show it installed, how it's installed, and a pic of my template.  I will add pics of the rollbar itself once I remove it from the car.

UPDATE:

This is SOLD.

Moar pics as promised!

Luckily, this was quick and easy to remove.  So I took some pics of it by itself with the hardware that it comes with.  I will be getting a box and figuring out the shipping soon.  Until then, please enjoy the following pics...

As you can see, this bar is in better shape than when I received it new.  It is painted in 202 Black so it will match a black car perfectly.

Just a thought.   Maybe exchange plastics with each other.  That way he doesn't have to cut and you don't have to source replacements for your cut plastics.

That's not a bad idea.  But I need to remove my seatbelts to get these pieces off.  I still need to figure out my shipping options though so there is time...  haha.

FWIW I have an Autopower and I never cut my plastics. I install the bar without plastics for track days and remove it and throw the plastics on. Removing those plastics is VERY easy, seatbelt is one 14mm bolt. Food for thought.

True.  I like how solid it makes the car feel so I left mine in all the time.  Plus, I liked to keep my pre-track setup as simple as possible due to laziness.  hahaha.  But, you are right that the install and un-install are very fast if you're just using it for autocross.

I'm going to say and ask something dumb... please cure my ignorance...

 

Is that bar legal for track use?  It doesn't look strong enough to support the car.

When bolted up to the four chassis connection points, it becomes an extension of the chassis and the triangulation located at each side roll bar's bolt point increases it's crush strength.

I have one installed and it is stout when bolted up.

I don't know if this is legal for track use or not.  It certainly stiffens up the chassis and does provide protection.  That said, I think only the more cage like bars like the Hard dog and others are truly "track legal" for our cars.

I think my real question is, "how stout would it be upside down with a car on top of it?"

No one really knows but somehow everyone is an expert on this subject when you ask on Spyderchat.  On one camp its sufficient and the other extreme they say it makes it worse than no bar. There  was also the controversy  with style bars.  Even some of the other elaborate cages were criticized for not having the right mounting points where it counts. The only thing we do know after over 15 years of back and forth discussion is the Hard dog  is certified legal although many have passed inspection with the Autopower Rollbar at tracks that require a roll bar.

The bar is legal for many track associations yes. Used it at Laguna Seca and Thunderhill. I remove it because I'm tall and it's right next to my head. Car snapped at autocross once and I hit my head on it. Helmeted of course.
