Please feel free to disagree with that view if you know better...
Indeed - As I said above, it will be the opinion of the SVA inspector. Could go either way. just because we might think the structure is substantial doesn't mean the inspector will. I know someone whose car was failed at SVA because the seat belt mounts were not 4mm thick (yes that's right, 4mm) when most production cars are about 2mm thick. He got them replaced, even though many of the same car have passed over the years.
