you need to gut the interior. just totally down to the metal. and drive it like that. and get rid of the style bar. put in a boss frog double hoop bar in there.

got any engine shots?

Wouldn't it be a good idea to keep that bar if he's going to be drifting/auto-X? Or is it as you said just for style and would collapse on roll over
