Metal supermarket. Just make sure you get the right material and thickness. Track officials are very picky.

From what I hear it's a pretty standard size.

What he said. Generally, it will be 1.5x.120 pipe (depends on weight, but you will need a fairly serious weight reduction done on the E36 to get it to the next weight level than requires the smaller tubing)

Thanks guys! Metal Supermarket is a block away from where I'm building the car!

I highly doubt I'll be getting under 2500 lbs.

Where is the best place to put a hole for inspection?

You will need to drill an inspection hole around the bottom of every main post. So say, front hoops, and main hoop? something like that. The CASC rule book may specific an exact spot, don't remember offhand.

I hate to say it, but isn't this one of those things that if you need to ask, you shouldn't be doing it yourself? Safety is no joke.

Oh I wouldn't know where to begin if I was doing it. That's why I'm having my brother do it. He has a lot of experience welding. Been doing this kind of stuff for years.

Are you building your car for track days or casc regional racing... if so you can find the cage material thickness and other useful info in the casc race regulations rule book
http://www.casc.on.ca/documents/race/2010raceregs.pdf.
Do you have a cage designed if you need ideas....you can look at mine ( e36 coupe) Iam in Toronto.

Thanks, already been there Got all the specs. I'm not going to be racing competitively for a year or two so I'm building the car for fun right now but to Prepared spec for the future.
