Roll Bar - Anyone make one?

Just wondering if anyone makes a roll bar for the 6th gen convertible?

I'm looking for one that's easy to install and won't damage the interior much.

RPM seems to be the go to bolt in brand... Does anyone have, or know of someone who has experience with the install on our Gen6 Verts? Maybe a video? How bad is the subsequent in/out assembly/disassembly after the initial install? Since doing one late season track day in Oct, I expect a few more will be in store for next year. That said I would like to eventually try other tracks and the Vert may not be as warmly welcomed as it was at my first track day without the added roll "protection".

Well I talked to Rob at RPM rollbars yesterday and will be following up with him in a couple more weeks. The roll bar for the 6th Gen convertible IS listed on their website although still in the R&D stage. He said he had like 11 vehs in and around the shop as we spoke and most were Camaro's, one of which was the R.A.D 6th Gen Vert. So see what happens. I must say if I go forward with this, if I wasn't already nervous enough, I'm even more so with the idea of apparently being one of the pioneers in doing this generations convertible install. And after having surfed over on Camaro5 regarding the Vert rollbar, and communicating with guys that have since installed the Coupe rollbar (across all Gens), this is not going to be as easy of an install I had hoped. Ok, now back to letting the crickets sing some more.

Update... Rob (RPM Rollbars) emailed me back 3/7 stating they are still behind in the R&D install on the Vert, they still have a car at their shop although has been "no progress"

Another update... Reached out to Rob again on Weds 3/28. The response back is that there are now like 14 people on his Vert "waiting list", and he also implied that they are currently now working on it. Anybody else have any info? Same or otherwise?

Yes actually, but not good. Emailed Rob (again) April 17th & 21st, heard back on the 23rd that they are "Not quite ready yet, over half done tho." He had some "rush jobs" come in, and was expecting to resume again after this Friday...
Honestly, I think I will see a dedicated coupe track car in my future before going this route at this point.
