DIY Roll Cage - Is it Worth It?

Thanks to Ebay Motors for sponsoring this video! CLICK here to search through thousands of cars and parts & list those project cars and spare parts sitting around!

Last week we got rid of our potato stock seats and threw some new Sparco seats at the e36. Today we get to go full race car by fabricating our own roll cage in case we ever yeet ourselves! Will it be worth it to tackle this ourselves? Only one way to find out. Thankfully Mike is here to help out!

We have a new channel!

Money Pit is where you get to learn about cars as we work on them. Each ep we’ll breakdown how each component works and then we’ll upgrade it. Join us in our journey to build cool cars, learn about them, and drive the crap out of them!

Some of our best videos ever are coming out soon, stay tuned so you won't miss a thing!

  • Y'all made this look easy, but holy shit a cage is TONS of manhours. Well done!!! Also thank you for giving a brief rundown of your plans for the car and why you chose the cage design that you did. Nothing worse than building a cage that doesn't follow the ruleset and then has to be redone.
