I was looking into putting a boxster roll bar on the mr2

How hard was it? And can you still use the compartments behind the seat?

Would love to see how you installed it. Thanks!

Is this what you are asking about?

They are referred to as "Style Bars" because they aren't roll bars.
They are ornamental only and offer no roll-over protection.
To the contrary, they may actually pose a hazard in a roll-over.

Different manufacturers offer different attachment methods.
Most simply bolt on to the cross beam behind the seats and don't intrude into the storage compartment at all.

Caveat Emptor.

To be clear..in a boxster its a roll bar. In a Spyder its a style bar. Correct triangulation of the mounting makes all the difference when it comes to functional safety. Can't argue that it looks damn good though.
