A rollcage, according to the SCCA Solo-II rules, is only two bars away from
a rollbar.  If you have a hoop, that's a rollbar.  If you have a hoop with
two diagonal bars (left and right) that brace the hoop to the rear strut

I got a little caught up in symantics; what are you talking about?

As far as harness strap placement, you really need to talk to the
harness maker about that.  On a B15, the LATCH system lower points are
at an ideal angle (relative to the top seatback) to be used with something
like a Schroth ASM Ralleye 3 or ASM AutoControl.  I don't think that any
B14s had LATCH points, though.  Best contact the harness manufacturer...
