    Ripped all the wood out of the countryman, boxed the B posts and will fit a roll bar behind B post with tube running down header and below side windows all tied into the frame of 1ins box around tail gate . Having driven it before it needs a lot of stiffening so I would say but as much bracing in as you can.

    Ditto to all the above comments re wood.
    my Austin Ruby had wood strengthening, some was rotten or falling out, so I replaced it with steel box, some places I kept the original wood and added the box section.

    quick update. Front suspension is located. Changed plans. Orginally I'd have had to modify the wings to clear the A arm pivot and the upright. Decided that was ugly so pushed the pivot out 35mm and shortened the top arm. I know I'll get a bit more (0.7deg) camber gain at full compression, and a bit more positive on droop. But it's not a race car, so go with it.
    Rear suspension is also located, just need to remake the brackets as I put a 12mm hole in them rather than 10mm!

    wings and running boards all fit. On first trial I had about 60mm ground clearance to the running boards. Mmmm. Once I'd set the rear up with the correct tyre it pulled up the clearance a lot. All ok.
