Roll bars... mostly Hard Dog, but I think there are some Boss Frog ones around. Welded is always good assuming it's done correctly.

Sway bars... I liked my FM one up front.

I've got a Hard Dog M2 Sport Double Diagonal. They aren't too expensive, especially if you get a single diag. Or you wait for something used to pop up like I did.

The extremes are much pricier.

I think I understand what your asking... But then I don't. I'm just confused. Corbeau seats are nice and cheap. I was going to go with a set of clubmans myself before I went another direction. I did have the fx1 pro's but they barely fit my NB.

As he said hes not a skinny guy, and fx1 pro's are pretty small. For example, an Fx1 wide in my friends s13 is pretty tight on me, and im 5'9 172 lbs, so use that as your reference point. Also if an FX1 pro barely fit your NB then a wide would be a stretch because they are like 4-5 inches wider or so. Just FYI.

FM is Flyin' Miata

As for seats, I use MOMO Starts. Decent price and a nice fit. I had my cage custom built could have a bar made also.

Used roll bars and cages do pop up on occasion and it might be worth it to wait for a known quality piece.

I'm 5'10" 230lbs aiming for 200lbs

ya the roll bar safty issues are on my mind but i'll wait and see what kinda price i can get from my buddy they might be too good to pass up and i can always get him to over do it and gusset it like crazy. anyways i will let you all see before it goes on the car.

As of right now this is all my car is untill it comes some time this month so im not in that big of a hurry to get these things.
