Default Attaching tube roll cage

Hey, I was wondering how I would go about attaching a roll cage made of brakeline to an aluminum chassis?

Crimp the bottom, bend it 90, and drill through. Attach with bolts.


Edit: If you want a cleaner look, find a nutsert that fits into the tubing, and solder/braze it on..

i guess my first question would be what kinda car/truck are you wanting to install this on?

i guess my second thought would be concerning accessibility as far as getting your body off to work on the vehicle... easiest thing would be that the roll cage could be taken off somewhat quickly

Whatever you come up with, post some pics and results. I am interested in whether the extra weight makes a vehicle more prone to landing on its lid or if the shape helps it get on its wheels.
