Roll cage tie in?

now that I have a roll cage.
How are you guys mounting it to the chassis?
I was thinking either a straight tube at a 45 from chassis to bottom plate....or off the chassis bend a 90 to a plate.

bolt pattern are not symmetrical. The body to chassis mounts get in the way. I'm going to weld another peace of flat stock to the A pillar roll cage mount and tie the top into the body mount.

Same for the rear. You can't see the body mount bolt but it's just on the other side of the plate. I'm going to weld another peace to the roll cage mount and tie that in.

The front seems like a easy fix. The rock slider (what I call) out riggers go directly under the roll cage A pillar. I figure a straight tube off the out rigger to a flat plate will tie in the front.
As for the rear. Nothing to mount to other then the chassis.....which is why Posted my question. straight tube off the chassis slanted up the location of the B pillar or bend a 90...off the chassis to bottom of B pillar?
Mike

I do have on other question.
Lap belt. I have the inner side mounted to the old seatbelt location. But the outter one? for now I have it mounted to the other corner seat bolt. I was thinking of mounting it to the bolt off the roll cage B pillar. That would be allot stronger then under the seat. What's your take on that?

If your seats are bolted to the body, the Seat belts should be as well.

Cage tie-ins, Slanted or a 90* will work. my fronts are a 90* and the rear are slanted up from the frame

The top shoulder belts are mounted to the roll cage. Seats are mounted to the body. For the lap belt.... They are mounted to the body. It's the outer one that I was thinking of mounting it to one of the bolts that hold the roll cage in.
I have plated the rear seat mounts with some thick metal. I know the bolt won't pull through. It's just not symmetrical to the inner half of the lap belt.

Cool.
The rear I'll make a 90 degree bent in it. It will be easier to weld and bolt the two plate together with the cab between the two. I'll also plate the chassis to spread the load over a greater area.
