hey all...I come from a place where the idea of bulding baja buggies hasn't reach yet ... I come from a small country in the mid.east,
It's "lebanon"

The idea of building a buggy came to me a year ago while i was in the mountain region of lebanon where the roads are perfect for a baja buggy BUT... knowing that i was a 15 year old with no experience what so ever with vw cars and didn't find anyone willing to help nor the funds to do so...i put the project aside. Now my cousin and his father, my uncle (a mechanic) want to help me and we finally have a vw beetle to work with.
Anyway i'm in desprate need of roll cage mesurments that looks like the model in the url below... plz reply

Yep it is,

As for roll cages in the VW's it all custom built. Or a kit that is fitted to the car. so giving you sizes etc. will not help that much. I know some people here are better at getting down to the nuts and bolts of building cage. You best bet is to start with a simple 4 point cage and work off of that.

Yeah man post them, we all will do our best to help. Are there any places there to get parts easily? Im with eric start with a 4 point cage since you can always add to it. Remember that triangulation is the key to strength.

I think it is extremely cool you want to be a pioneer of Bajas in your area, maybe you will be a trend setter and the Baja will become more popular in your country. I hope so.

Now on to your question;
It may be very hard to get a good set of measurements to build your cage off of. I do have a few suggestions for you...Start with a Chenowth brand class11 roll cage kit. This kit comes with pre-bent 1.5" diamater .095" wall mild steel tubing that is a pretty good cage in its own right. Here is a link to the cage Chenowth Class11
That is a good cage and may be all you need, but if you want to go all out and cage the car from bumper to bumper you can build upon that Chenowth kit for a full out cage.
I hope you can make out the fine print in these photos that explain what tubes are the Chenowth kit and what you are adding in yourself, just hit me with any questions you have about these pictures...
rear cage
mid cage
front cage

If you want to go with a full custom cage fabricated yourself and have a Mandrell Tube Bender, welder..ect I can point you in the right direction for bad ass computer software to use in planning and laying out all dimensions for the measurements you need to start bending tube and fabricating your cage.....but there really is no list of dimensions I know of, sorry.

hey Fasthoe1 ... Um actually i'm french educated, they teach us a bit of english at school too but my aunt lives in jacksonville north carolina she's lived there for like 25 years and i've visited her abt two times so i learned to speak and write on my own.

DeMilled! You've been a great help! thnx alot man... But i was planning on making my custom built cage cuz it would cost me alot to ship one to my country...And yeah i'm hoping it will become a trend cuz it's an awesome project to do and maybe it can become a competiton. The pc software would be great if u can pass me the name to see if i can find it here or a link where i can download it from...

P.S:Still haven't been able to take the pix...the car is at my uncle's
