OMP Bolt in Range
This comprehensive range covers the older vehicles in the respective vehicle manufacturers range. The cages are made from FE45 steel and are FIA approved. The 104 range consists of a front section (103) and a rear section (102) which are bolted together to make a 6 point cage. The 2 sections can be ordered separately if required. Now supplied with door bars.

umm... take the diagonal out if you MUST use the rear seats... but if you're using the rear seats, you aint gonna really need the rollcage when passengering people. unless ur doing some weird 4 person per car competition... ?

i think if you are getting to the stage of fitting a cage you can wave goodbye to rear passengers anyway. I must admit though, if i ever got one, it would be for looks first, and a safety feature second, the extra weight of a bolt in cage kind of negates any performance benefit it may have...
