Default Looking for pics of a Chris Alston exact-fit roll bar or roll cage in a 2nd gen fbody

The title says it all. I'm looking at buying an exact fit (or whatever brand is the tightest fit 1 " roll bar) roll bar or cage, and id like to see some pictures of the cages I stalled In a 2nd gen fbody. I want to see how tight the bars are to the interior walls or panels. How was your experience with the fit and install of the cage?

No one has these cages? Alston's tech support couldn't provide any pics either. Surely some of these have to have been sold.

I have one of their exact fit roll cages in a 68 camaro. I can tell you first hand, it didn't fit tight to the body. If I had to do it over again I'd either have a pro build and install the cage or I would build it myself (I now own a tubing bender).

For the price they charge for the cages you would think they would fit tighter but they don't.
