Thanks! I plan to make a custom 8 point roll bar and weld it into the frame. Like so.

That should offer plenty of protection and help strengthen the frame. I don't see the car really doing a lot of track time. Only occasionally. Really just play on the street. It'll be my play toy. So just a roll bar should do. I can always add later if I decide it'll see more track time than anything else.
