 Who offers pre cut/bent roll bar/cage kits for a 68 AMX. Any recommended number of points or material?

good luck!

 What do the rules demand for a 10 second car, as for as material and number of attaching points?

I'm told summit racing lists roll cages pre-made for AMCs on there web site if you hunt for them. I have not checked but was surprised to hear that Summit had them. Just FYI. LRDaum

pretty sure that with a stock floor and firewall you can go to 10 flat with just a roll bar.  Otherwise it is 11.49 for a roll bar and 10.99 for a roll cage.  But, really don't take my word for it.  found these links, at 999 you need a cert.  Can't find the stock firewall and floor disclaimer so maybe that has changed.

We recently put a S&W 8 Pt. bar in a 69 it seemed to fit good but the rear legs did not go all the way back to the leaf spring mounts. If I had it to do over I would try to order just the main hoop and let the local Fab. shop supply everything else.

 Bill, did you weld or bolt it in and will the side bars fit factory seats & arm rest?

Welded it in and there just isn't enough room for the arm rests.  We looked at trying to dip below the armrests but that just really did not look right. I think most people are upholstering a small panel to cover the holes in the door panel and using pull straps. I'm not using the original seats so I can't help you there.

You only need a 6pt bar for 10.00 and slower..9.99 and quicker needs an 8pt cage..The Kenosha Killer AMX ran 10.50's and had a 8 pt bar(6 pt with two kicker bars to the floor)
..
  I make my own because all the kit bars hardly work with stock seats or armrests..They will go in,but in my opinion,fit like garbage..I use my own main hoop dimensions and side bars to clear all the stock interior...Also,side bar is supposed to cross midway between the drivers elbow and shoulder as per NHRA tech..If you place the bar down low to clear the seat/armrest,it doesn't pass tech at our tracks..
 A link the KK AMX bar..

 Can you make another, exactly the same for me? I would like to see the back two bars location. I would want a bolt in.
