Anyone know if a roll bar is actually essential on a roadster for MOT / vehicle construction and use regs - if not mine will be coming off as I could save weight and use the mounting points for a removeable hood frame.
Its not needed for iva or mot
However if you fit one and your seat belts are mounted to it then it needs to be adequate for the job
