    Roll cage

    Im going to weld a cage into mine just wondering if it'll be acceptable for FIA rallies, how do you get it legal? I understand it must be built to MSA regs thickness angles etc but after it's built do you need someone to come out and deem it "safe" Or is that what scrutiny is for? Thanks
