Sorry I havent gotten my pics up, I had to come out here to california for a few days for work. Damn the weather is nice here compared to jersey :)

In any event, there are no specific measurements to cut the holes, my holes were different than zero's. Best thing to do is to mount the bar inside ur car, than go from there.

Instead of cutting huge holes in the panels, I put the bar in (and secured it) then cut the panels - made a cut straight across and then straight down (in the shape of: |_ or _| ) so the points where the two cuts meet is at the intersection point of where the roll-bar would be. I then placed the two panel pieces and trimmed them down incrementally until the panels fit back into place around the bar. Then I drilled small holes in the panels and used some thin sheetmetal to act as a backing plate (with corresponding holes), and secured it all with pop-rivets.

It takes longer, but ultimately looks cleaner. If I get a chance I will take a picture.

My first one I actually made three cuts . . . but that's the beauty of this board, you can learn from my mistakes :)

Another angle . . .

Nice pics guys! I'm considering getting myself a AP 4 point kit hopefully this summer. I have a question though, I noticed in these pix that the seats are still kept.. is it just for esthetic reasons? I don't see a point in having the seats other than dampening the exhaust noise :p

Tag: How long did the install take and do you have pix of the mounting points before you put the covers back on? Would be cool to check that out! Thanks for the pix and lookin' good!
