    Edward, Yes please send the roll bar rig to:

    Dale Thomas
    958 S. Rancho Vista Drive
    Prescott, AZ 86303

    Using the rig will allow me to fit, remove and take to the shop for welding, instead of taking the car in for fitting.

    Thanks. Let me know how you would like to get you $.

    Cheers, Dale
