G'day piledriver. sorry for delay. the engineer will look at your proposal then make suggestions as to the best practise. Once you have completed the task he then gives you the nod to carry on building. We come under what's know as the NCOP google it. It has made building a car a lot easier in a lot of ways.

Nice!

That's actually brilliant to have a national set of sane standards.
Here it's mostly hands off/anything goes...
If it stops, has turn signals and all the (minimal) safety features like belts, doesn't spew fluids and sound like a Cessna, its good to go, but that makes a great deal of sense. (Some states and of course Canada (varies by province?) have insanely rigid rules allowing virtually zero performance or even lighting mods)

Here in Texas, my favorite rule is if you don't have a windshield, you don't need wipers.
(Seems reasonable)
...and you don't have to have a windshield or fenders, or a body for that matter, street legal tube frame rails are regularly seen.
I, for one, regularly embrace our new robot overlords, as I am the guy fixing the robots...
