Swing Out Door Bar Kit from Rhodes Race Cars

I am using a swing out door bar kit from Rhodes Race Cars on a current project and thought I would give you a look at the kit. I usually use the one made by Applied Racing and this one is similar but Rhodes makes a kit specifically for 1-3/4" x 0.120 wall tubing where as Applied kit is only for 0.134 wall tubing which leads to a sloppy fit. Thanks for watching.

On a related note, have you come across any others of this design? I like the concept except for the fact that it can take no tension load.

Wow, those bring back memories. I used to machine similar ones back in the early 90s for a local fab shop. We left a radius where those sharp inside corners are though. I didn't think anyone still used those things.

No, I didn't mean it like it sounded.

I don't do drag car stuff anymore, I have no idea what they still do.

Not that there is something wrong with that style.

My boss didn't like sharp corners, so we ran the side of an end mill up the sides to make all the cut/reliefs.
