I have the Autopower Rollbar for my '97 Vert and am ready to install it. For my own piece of mind, I have decided to follow the advice of a few people I have met over the last several months in that they welded an extra plate to the floor boards for added strength, then bolted the rollbar in.

My question, therefore, is how did you do that (what kind of plates and to what points were the plates welded?) and do you have any pictures?

Thanks very much for your help!

I new you would like that. :D

I wish I had info about the plate thickness that he used.

It looks like around about a 3/16" thick. :dunno:
