My car currently lacks bars at both ends, what options are open to K3 owners? Am I right in thinking that K series Metro bars originally mounted to the vehicle bodywork?

Thanks Paul, are those original metro bars or custom made? I note the links going up rather than down. I don't suppose you have a pattern for those damper mounts do you?

Yes it looks that way, thank you for posting those up. There's a bit of uneasiness in the handling, nothing alarming, but it does remind me of vehicles I've run in the past without bars fitted for trialling.

Rich.

Unless your car was built using a Metro GTi subframe, then there will be no roll bars.

The easiest way to do it is to fit the MGF front set up, but this will involve welding brackets for the front mounts to the subframe and a pair to the bottom suspension arms as they are not present on the standard Metro set up, OR just fit a full MGF front and rear end :shock:
