Question Roll Cage Welders

Looking to get my roll cage welded in, may need slight modifications before welding! Anyone know a good place? It's a 10 Point DOM

DOM is not a material. DOM is an acronym for drawn over mandrel, which is how the steel is made. If the cage is mild steel, it can be mig welded, if chromoly it must be TIG welded

Sorry I thought DOM was only mild steel, sorry for the confusion.

How's the pricing? I'm not gonna cheap out on something this important, just want to get an idea ahead of time though. Also time isn't very important since the car will be down for many months...

I talked to Fast Forward Race Cars last spring and they said they won't install a pre-fabbed cage. They will only bend their own using 4340 chromoly.

They did give me a reasonable price quote for an 8.50 cage, but it was still quite a bit more than what a pre-fabbed cage will cost.

@LikeABauce302 I've been pointed towards straightline performance, haven't had a chance to call yet, but figured I'd let you know.

Cool

Still haven't had a chance to call, I'll probably just call while at PRI!

Here's an iPotato photo of the cage!

I haven't made any phone calls yet either. I'm waiting on my cage to be made and shipped still. I'll hopefully have it before Christmas.
