My DRM Roll bar arrived today. Very nice peice. Off to be powdered coated next week. Was going to do it yellow. Having second thoughts. Hate to do black, cause they "disappear"in the car. Any comments/sugestions? :-?
When you install your rollbar you better cover it with some nice high density, energy absorbing roll bar padding, especially if you are going to drive the car without a helmet at times. I was told that Woodbridge E175 foam is the best for this application (IRL, CART, and others use it).
When i install my rollbar i am going to cover it with the same material as the seats
Another 2cents worth..... My mod red interior is truly accented by the red powder coated DRM bar. From behind, with the sun at my back, the bar looks awesome and my Z06vette.com decal sure stands out!
Besides, any bar & harnesses are worth minimum of 50 horses!
Thanks for all the input guys. Decided to go with Black Chrome . It is a two part powder process. Not as bright as real black chrome,but very deep( and almost matches the the ZO6 wheels). Will post pictures later. Thanks to all.
Finally got the bar back form the powder coater, and installed it yesterday. I decided to do it Red once I decided to go with the ModRed Interior. I am happy with it.Had to be careful welding, cause the gas tank is right behind the bulkhead, but "no big deal". It fit OK. Trimming the rugs was the hardest part.Any body have any questions, sing out. Thanks for all your input.
( you'll notice no passenger seat. Easy way to rid yourself of any nuisance passengers and gives the car a "Real Racey Feel"
Hey Brian. You are one of the reasons it is red. I have three pictures of your roll bar in my documents.And once I decided to go with the ModRed Int, the choice was obvious. Thanks for the pictures(back in Nov).
