New SW roll bar installation

Does anyone have any advice for putting a NAS SW roll bar on a truck that had none before. It's an 1985 LR90 with the bulkhead. I know I need the braces under the wing(if anyone has them), but was kind of wondering why the metal is cut out on the fender? if you were to fabricate something could you just sandwich the fender between the roll bar and the brace?
Thanks!

they are pass through for the cage. You can see in these pictures when removing mine how the outer part joints to the supports that run inside the skin. I think Alans replica cage did the sandwich thing but I cant say for sure. You will also need the under body x-support that the inside loop ties into (1st pic).

you can see an almost complete process in reverse from when we took mine out on Tonys site:

You can get the bar in, its just a pain. I had to put it in from the back, lean both seats forward (maybe I took them out?) and then use a ratchet strap to pull the ends together a half inch or so to that the flanges would clear the body and drop into place. Its possible, but just a finesse job. Ensure you have everything aligned correctly (with the underbody hoop) before you drill the holes in each wheel well.

Good job, not the easiest thing to fit. Did you get all the bracing and underbody bracketry squared away?

The a-bar is all braced to the bulkhead, I'm still working working on the b-pillar. For now its just got backing plates.
Thanks Again, without this site I probably would of put it on Backwards!
