Recall that I built up the roll bar last month when I was avoiding the fuel system plumbing. I’m trying to get back ‘on track’ for the most part and follow the chapters in order in The Book since I’m afraid that I will overlook a dependency and build myself into a spot that I’ll have to undo.
Installing the roll bar was another straightforward procedure. Bolt down the bases to the attach plates, match drill, remove, deburr, prime, re-assemble and rivet. It took a little bit of percussive persuasion with a rubber mallet to get the roll bar seated over its braces, but nothing terribly difficult.
