Lets talk about Australian Design Rules!
With the renault having rego, the capacity of driving to and from track events is getting closer.
With it's sole purpose to be a cheap track car, I'm now at the stage where I can start to think about things I can take of it / make better, so that it still qualifies with it's ADR requirements for rego purposes whilst giving me the most fun on the cheap.
Investigating the conditions for the CVS rego, in effort to understand the what changes can be made legally, I've been directed to the second edition ADR which covers vehicles from 69-88
I'm currently interested in interior modifications and I can't see a control listed there apart from seat belts, sun visors, and the front windscreen.
Do I dare assume without a document present to control, I'm free to remove / change the side windows (delete / plastic), leave the interior stripped of carpet and even remove the window mechanisms, door handles etc etc.
Also there is no document to control for dashboards other then requirements of instrument visibility?
A rear 4 point roll cage to accommodate a harness also seems a none issue providing I don't interfere with occupant ingress / egress, along with the main hoop being 150mm away from "a head" in a seat at it's furthest back position.
And this is easily organized once I change the seating capacity to 2 or 1 for that matter by removing the affected seats and seat belts. (see page 57 https://infrastructure.gov.au/roads/...Jan2011_v2.pdf)
This doesn't seem so scary?
