How does one prove the aftermarket/modified/custom beam is equal to the stock one in strength? I doubt to many people have access to FEA software or the means to crash test parts...

This will have to be a "common sense" inspection looking for obvious deviations from the rule.

So cardboard would be a no-no?

Yeah, you'd have to step up to something a lot stronger, like balsa wood

Greg,

For cars that have not had the front beam in a long time, will a properly formed and mounted rollcage spec tube suffice as a replacement?
