    Fitting a roll cage

    I'm considering fitting a roll cage to my 1969 firebird convertible. This is a unibody construction. Should I drill through the floor and weld to the front chassis rails? Or, It already has solid body bushings so would it be ok to plate the floor and weld to that above the body bushings?
    If it's got tits or tyres, its gonna be trouble

    If you can weld a 3mm plate about 130mm sq to the floor area where you want the cage to be and weld the cage to that.

    Alternatively do same size plates and ssndwich either side of the floorpan for a bolt in cage
