What's in the Box
(1) Roll Cage Assembly
Increase both safety and the rigidity of your 1979-93 Mustang's chassis with a Maximum Motorsports Roll Cage. Intended for the rigors of drag racing, these MM Rollcages conform to NMRA and NHRA rules. Designed to fit with the stock Mustang interior, MM roll bars are also suitable for street-driven cars, especially if swing-out door bars are selected.
To keep delivery costs to a minimum, Maximum Motorsports designed these roll bars to ship with the rear braces detached. This requires a minimal amount of welding during installation to secure the rear braces to the main hoop.
For hardtop Mustangs, during installation the rear braces are bolted to the main hoop. This keeps the rear braces precisely aligned to the main hoop, allowing all welding to be done before the roll bar is installed in the car. This means you do not need to remove your car's interior to avoid damaging it while welding. To conform to the NHRA and NMRA rules, a qualified welder must use either the MIG or TIG welding process to weld the rear braces to the main hoop. We recommend that you get your own copy of the latest NHRA rules by calling them at 626/914-4761.
The convertibles have a slightly different installation procedure. To provide a good structural attachment point for the roll bar's rear braces, we include reinforcement plates for the convertible chassis. These are welded into place behind the rear seat. These reinforcements increase the strength of the convertible chassis at the attachment point of the rear braces. With a convertible, the top can be lowered and stowed during installation, which then provides easy access to protect the interior and complete the required welding. After all welding is completed, the roll bar still bolts into place, and can be removed from the car as a complete unit.
Contour-hugging 6" x 6" mounting pads with backup plates, better than any you've seen, sandwich the unibody for safe and strong mounting.
The front seats are accessed using Maximum Motorsports bolt-in or swing-out door bars. While both bars meet the NHRA rules, the swing-out door bars pivot outward, parallel with the doors, for easy entry. They can also be completely removed from the car in a matter of seconds! The bolt-in door bars are designed for easy initial installation (no welding), but are not intended to be removed.
Unlike some roll bars, our rear braces do not extend rearward of the centerline of the rear axle. This design maintains a crush zone at the rear of the car for optimum safety.
MM roll bars are uncoated, bare steel. For a high quality finish, the installer should paint or powder coat the roll bar after the welding is completed. Made of 1-3/4" diameter by 0.134" wall DOM tube (much stronger than the more commonly used 0.120" wall ERW seamed tubing).
Safety was my first priority not having any airbags and only factory seat belts. This solved the problem!
Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

Follow the directions and everything looks and fits great. Took a little while lining eveything up when drilling the holes, however it made it that much easier when I pulled it out to paint it and bolt it back in. Great product.if you get the mm subframe connectors, put this in first (its easier to get the front floor plates in under the car), before you reweld the support plates that are already on the car.
