roll cage?

Now that my "chick magnet" has been raised, I think it's time for a roll cage. I would like to have a 6 pt cage that covers the back as well as the front. I would also like to keep all my factory parts (i.e. the targa top). I have looked at the cage from petroworks and it looks like it may fit the bill. But so does the one from calmini. I am not a welder nor do I know one so the bolt on sounds good to me. Does anyone have or know anyone that has the petroworks cage? Can I keep my cars body intact? Is there another option that I am missing?
Thanks.

Re: roll cage?

I've got a Davesport cage in mine and am happy with it. I haven't had to test it yet though. I just had a guy I know do the welding (I've got a welder also, but he does it for a living).

I can run the targa bar with no problems and the rear "family" hoop works as the rear support for the soft top. I went with this one because I liked how the front hoop uses straight tubing going to the floor unlike the Petroworks cage. It also has the dash bar for added lateral support. I also like how the rear supports mount to the corners behind the wheelwell instead of on the wheelwell. It's a PITA to get the hole drilled but has a lot of support since it mounts into a section where many body seams tie together.

I am currently planning on adding a bar behind the front seats for 5 pt harnesses and adding a spreader bar for side protection when the doors are off.
