2021-01-01 - Roll Cage Tabs
Looking to add tabs to connect my A-Pillar bars to my A-Pillar. I would like to make the tabs ~10" long. However 126.96.36.199 states tabs can be 6" max length with max 2 tabs in any 36" of tube. If this is the only tab in 36" of tube can I make it 12" long or do I need to make two separate 6" plates that are say 1/4" apart. Either way is fine, just want to make sure I'm not taking the rules outside the spirit of their design.
Please use two separate tabs per side, max 6" each, to attach your A pillars to each side of the car.
