Front external roll cage (front hoop)

Hello ,

I've been looking around for a new or used front hoop
without luck. If you guys know about one, even in bad shape...

Thanks

I sent a mail to RDS, still no answer. I've been writing
to Evans in UK, and they do have the front hoop, but
damned.... it's expensive, probably made of titanium...
800 USD just for the front hoop without shipping.

With some minor fabrication you can make a ST front hopp work for a D90 Wagon.

I was even thinking of making one starting from
zero. Do you by any chance know what diameter
and wall thickness tubing is best for this work ?

Thanks Cirbo, do you recommend any particular
bending procedures for this fabrication ?

I have made one to date. I plotted the bends into Bend-Tech Pro. I could pass you the measurements, rotational information, and bends, but it wouldn't work for you unless you were using the exact same bender, die, and tubing.

Ping me off line if you'd like the data to try.
