1991 Mitsubishi Galant VR-4
Installing a NHRA Roll Cage in a Galant VR4
March 6, 2004
This page is dedicated to the installation of a rollcage in my galant VR-4. Personally I think
it's an excellent safety device but Bandimere is also going to throw me off the track when I
run 11.99 or faster without one. Therefore, in preparation for the 2004 race season here
in beautiful Colorado I will be installing a cage. The first step in preparation for this
installation is interior removal. Pictures and notes can be seen below:

After a bit of a moving related delay, tubing was ordered today for my cage and the cages of 3 friends. $1300 total tubing cost! My tubing was 80 feet of 1.75x0.095 4130 steel at a cost of $328. The tubing was purchased from EMJ in Denver for $4.10/foot for 095 and $4.60/foot for 120, both 1.75 diameter 4130. Talk to Gil @ EMJ (303-387-0381) if you need some tubing. Delivery is scheduled for May 4th.

Here are some pictures of bending up the main hoop. This got done a long time ago but has been on hold. I'm starting back up again now and should be ready for the season opener. Big thanks to Erron for the help so far and for putting up with the really long delay on my end.
