These aren't mustang pics but I did find one that had my fastback in it. Just a couple of tips. If you plan to weld your cage in I would recomend using the method that I use by welding a perch off the rocker panel instead of welding to the floor. It is a whole lot stronger and gives you additional leg room. Also tack weld the perches until you get all of the cage formed and fitted so that you can remove the perches, drop the cage down, and have room to weld the top of the cage. This particular car was one that had a bolt in cage and the owner decided to have me weld a cage in.
Is this bar just for show? If you plan to take it to a drag strip, the bar isn't legal and I think most tech inspectors won't pass it. It has to be at least a 5 point bar and meet certain criteria. You might want to look at the NHRA rules before installing the bar if there is any chance that you might do any 1/8 or 1/4 mile racing. Don't know anything about roll bar/cage rules for road racing though.
One thing to keep in mind about functional roll bars/cages for a daily driver type car is that they tend to be bad for head injuries in an accident. The bars are usually meant to be used with a helmet along with padding on the bars where the helmet could hit.
