Default roll bar/cage

Anyone have any pictures of their roll bar/cages in their convertibles? Im about to have one installed and was curious what they looked like or if anyone would change anything about the one they have installed already. Pics would be much appreciated!

I got a wolfe 5 point, I installed about 6 months ago. I don't have any pics at the moment (at work). Google 'wolfe' and you will find lots of pics.

Other than making me feel safer I really did not notice much of a difference BUT I added it way after subframe connectors.
The way the bar mounts though would lead me to believe that it definitely helped stiffen up the chassis.

Thanks everyone for the pics. Do you think it is still necessary to have subframe connectors with these roll bars? Or is it better to have both roll bar and subframe connectors for rigidity? Thanks again For the pics and info from all of you .. adding a procharger on my car and don't want to mess anything up with the chassis while adding the extra HP...

I know several local people to do them, and can show you some in the area. Yes do Sub frames too, unless your car sits in the garage like that other guys does. You know, that silver dog!

Thanks! I just got them installed actually and I love how they feel. The seats are Corbeau LG1s which I had wrapped in taupe leather to match the rest of the interior.

Been awhile since I've been in this area. Roll bar for a vert really makes a huge visual appearance.

Cars do look good with a cage. This is going to be my next buy.

How easy are the roll bar bolt-in 4th Gen 'Vert Wolfe ones to install? How long approx. does install take? Removal time? TIA!

Also, 4, 5 or 6 point -- which did you all go with and pro/cons? I am only interested in bolt-in versions...
