Hi to everyone.  I'm new to this forum, but some of you know me from PFF with my Aventador build based on an 88 Fiero Chassis and an Inspire body kit.  I've had the pleasure of meeting Paul and Dubuc SLC, who drove down from Quebec to visit my build last year, before Paul bought his kit from Inspire.  They are great guys and wow...what a wealth of knowledge.  It's builds like Paul's that keep me inspired (no pun intended) and strive to keep the quality of my work up. 

I won't get involved in any of the issues and arguments going back and forth here, but I will say that I hope everyone can put these things aside and keep threads like these civil as much as possible.  This is where new builders look for the information that will help them get into what could be one of the biggest projects of their lives...or help them steer clear before they get over their head.  If it gets filled with animosity, then eventually it falls apart, the real information dries up and the thread loses any value.   :(

Anyway...let's keep a great thread positive and enjoy the awesome work from Paul!  I have lots more to learn from him and can't wait to see his progress!   ::thumbup

Dubuc, your build is looking spectacular. Can't say enough about your craftsmanship, especially the framing, really looking top-notch. Best of luck with it!  ::thumbup

It's far more likely to crush at the windshield /A pillar area in an accident, than be a perfect 180 degree rollover situation where the rear rollbar behind the seats comes into play

If the entire windshield /a pillar area is crushed into the passenger compartment , it doesn't matter that the rear rollbar behind the seats is strong , the occupants are still dead.

I guess all cobra replica/OEM owners will never drive there cars again...
I am going to keep driving mine, and continue to do it without wearing the seat belt. It would make me feel like I was belted to a motorcycle. I have been stopped several times because there is no visible shoulder belt, but after explaining that a 1966 is not even required to have belts, let alone be worn, they say nice car.
