I received the roll bar pieces from Roll Cage Components on Friday Jul 24th. That is 10 days from order to delivery. They were delivered via FedEx. They were taped together and had no further packaging. I guess FedEx had to worry about the other packages being damaged more that these things. They were undamaged and saved a bit of landfill at the same time. I'm very happy with the quality of the material and the work. I admit I was a little bit hesitant not knowing what to expect with regards to the finish of HREW. I know that hot rolled 1x1 sq tube is nasty stuff. The steel used here was as a smooth as a baby's.... In my design, I left the length of the rear supports an inch or two long and did not have the angle cut to match the rear mounting plates. This was done to leave a bit of adjustment on my end, if required. All I had to do was to line things up and cut the angle. Everything else fit just right.
1st, I tack welded the upright to the upper shock perches. Then added the diagonal. Then I trimmed the ends of the rear supports and tacked them into place. Everything was perfect. I then finsh-welded the rest of the welds and got the frame painted. I drilled a couple of holes in the shock perch under the roll bar upright just in case I want to add a 3rd brakelight. I can run the wires up thru the center of the roll bar.
I am a very happy camper and highly recommend Jimmy @ Roll Cage Components. Thanks for the recommendation Craig (and Jack?). My design was a bit different than Craigs so the cost was a bit more. Even so it is a very Locost solution if you don't have access to a tube bender.
Here is a pic of the finished product.
