There was a series on ... Motors TV (or something like that) back in the UK a couple of decades ago. A guy with limited knowledge attempted to built a sportscar, it never really worked out. I'm getting similar vibes from this.
Why didn't the builder start with a TVR ladder chassis like other British DIY builders?

His roll structure will connect with the sub frames front and rear, a 3 piece chassis.

Bump, he has posted at least updates since and do i beleive concerns are very well founded, the A pillar is too close to the drivers head, the engine block is too close to the drivers shoulders, there is no room for a steel brace to follow the A pillar, it will be unbraced fubreglass.
I am of the opinion the drivers head will impact the windshield by minimal foward movement.
This could very well be a deathtrap?

His welding is pretty shocking on top too, what a deathtrap.
