i removed my rear seats and rear interior on my 92 gs. I made a c pillar bar using 4' 10.5" of 1 in"black steal" pipe from orchard supply and some old brackets from an old front upper strut bar(tenzo) form a 5th gen accord. I put it where the hatch struts attach to the car. is this the proper place? i will post pics soon.

Sorry, really didnt document anything. all i can tell you is use 1 inch. seems the lightest while still being STIFF. the ends of it crush nicely as well. a little heat also helps the crushing of t he ends. the hole drilling is somewha hard because the bit likes to wander. Strong stuff, the black steal. i just grabbed some bolts and nutts laying around(lots of hardware in my household) and used them. i plan on cutting them for a cleaner look. i already painted the bar gunmetal.

Oh to answer your question,
it should be at the top bolts of where the rear seatbelts are.

Hope that helps.

<D lol, all together, it was about 6 dollars for the pipe from orchard supply. i think i might relocate it to the seatbelt area after finding out the proper place. It definately does close off the chassis somewhat. Noticably. now, when i enter some driveways, i lift the inside rear wheel, whereas before, it would just creak and flex, and all fours would stay down.i love it. i painted SOME of it gunmetal(the part thats visible from the back).

MAKING CHEAP FUNCTIoNAL PARTS FTW!!!!

Definately money. not so much the time. But HEEYyy, why not if its cheap/free if you have a lot of time?it was a ***** cutting the pipe to length and to cruch and drill the ends. im sure you could bend up some metal or find some metal thats already bent at a hardware store. pretty simple stuff.
