Window nets

Anyone have a good recomendation for a window net and mount that fit's the opening of an F-Toy pretty well. I have only found one place here in Tucson that carries that sort of stuff, and they don't have much.

Pics if you got them...

Thanks,
Pat

i have seen all different size among the ftoys in window nets. matt runs the spegetti wire window net which is easier to see out of. the one i run is the full size of the window which made it easier to mount. for the bottom mount, i ran a peice of flat bar thru the net and then pop rivoted the ends into the chassis on the inside of the frame. for the top i ran a piece of small round solid, thru the window net and welded one side to a seat belt buckle. then welded the tab for the buckle on the inside of the A pillar on the chassis. i welded a piece of bushing tube that i had laying around to the other side for the peice of round solid to go into before i buckle it. its so solid you can hang on the window net.

Thanks Hobie! Here is a little bit of what I have found. Anyone use these? http://www.stockcarproducts.com/safety8.htm

I'm just out of time right now to get this done. Can I just use ratchet straps and get in from the pass side?

The net you found is like mine. I mounted mine like Hobies on the top but on the bottom mount I welded bushings at each end that I slide round bar thru and hose clamp on both ends. this way I can take the net off when not needed

I ended up getting a window net and mount from Summit. It was about as simple as it gets to put in. The part numbers are BOB-1000 for the net http://store.summitracing.com/partde...0&autoview=sku
And BOB-90906 for the mounting kit http://store.summitracing.com/partde...0&autoview=sku
It includes everything you will need to mount to a F-toy chassis. I'll put up a couple pics next week.

I got mine from summit with the install kit cheap. I got the mesh one, not to be confused with the string net.
