You could try Art Morrison or Alston ,or try and find someone local to you.Will you be welding the roll bar yourself?
I've bent up a couple roll cages, goes good if you have good tools.on my 65 cal I plan to buy my cage pre bent from Bears(519)737-7793, being located in Canada no exchange to deal with.

No you should not have to replace the head liner.The 65 comet head liner could be removed and reinstalled with a 4pt rollbar I think.If careful while fitting and welding of the rollbar you should be able to leave the head liner in. Use leather and thin sheetmetal for a heat sheild.Cover all your windows with cardboard or door skins and tape the edges.The sparks from grinding and the sparks and splatter from welding will become embedded in the glass ruining the glass.I've seen windows shatter when welders didn't cover them.
Good luck and take your time to make nice fits on the bar.

Roger, where abouts in Canada is Bears? Fastcomet, did you find a roll bar for the car, if so, how's it fit.

Bears is located in Oldcastle Ontario. I have got a couple of mandrel bent pieces from them and they are top quality. My friend who is building a pro street 39 Nash ordered a bunch
of parts the everything was top quaility.
