does anyone have an idea of what it would cost to have a weld in 10 point roll cage installed?

That's over a grand in Ca. Maybe

I paid $500.00 for the installation and $300.00 for the hoop and pipe.

The guy that installed it Tig welded it and bent the rest of the pipe to fit like I wanted it.

$800.00 total.

You gotta watch that California Inflation!!!

Hard question, I used to do it for around 450. This was bent to the car & was out the door. This was NOT how I put bread on the table just used it to help feed the appetite of my race car. You will just have to shop around.

I was including the cost of materials. I wouldn't do the whole job for less than a grand including materials. When I did the roll bar in the '66 it was a full day of labor for two of us and it was just a fully welded in roll bar kit with a pivoting door bar. The full cage with the front bars through the dash would be considerably more labor. BTW labor in CA is about $90/hr,

Thumpin Cat,

Go to the track and ask around. you will probably find that there is one or two names that will consistently come up. Those are the ones to investigate.

Yeah,

My local Ford dealer is charging 95/hr. But it isn't cheap to live here in the BayArea either. $350,OOO will buy you a little starter home, and gas is 1.69/gal for 87 octane.
