if it's welded throw away your chances of registering it again but if it's bolted in you can still register it either way i would still take it out also it will need a engineers report/blueplate whatever there called down there

In Victoria you can have a cage (welded or bolted) legally, so long as it conforms to guidelines set by vicroads.

You don't even need an engineers if it's constructed as per the guidelines.
hmmm who to believe. seriously. its a tough choice.

have seen plenty of cars driving around the streets with rollcages

Stocky, just remember that RibSmasherAu comes from NSW which is under the RTA! I would presume they'd have similar legislation to VicRoads, but someone would need to double check.

And i've seen plenty too, hell there's one that's always at my uni that's used in rally cross races.

Welded or bolted makes no difference but they need to be clear from your head, not running alongside the seat and not obstructing your view too much etc. Normal street type rules :)

Anybody know the procedure to change your registration classification from max 5 passengers down to 2 in Vic (as described in the pdf posted by luke)?

At the moment it is bolted in will take it down and see what they say i can't see it being a problem it is padded if it needs a engineers cert will just wait till i have all the mods i
