Alternative to safety devices heavy duty hood sticks

I want to take the roof off this summer but give the rear passengers some protection in case the worst happens.

I like the look of the heavy duty hoods ticks but $2k is too rich for my blood.

Anyone have an alternative suggestion?

do you have mounted seats and belts in the back?

Any idea where I might find dimensions for hood sticks - I want to make sure I can put a canvas top on it.

Absolutely! A local fab shop should be about half the price.

Just to make it clear. The roof provide zero rollover protection to any of the passengers. It folds like a deck of cards in the lightest of crashes.

That's why I want to get some sort of cage and potentially switch to soft top once I have rear seats.

if you are looking for roll cage protection with your sticks that 2k mark is not far off... material alone drives the price higher than expected....

The fabricator I use quoted me at around $2k for a similar setup.
