EA81 auto trike with custom roof

This trike is my hobby and is an ongoing project. Upcoming additions are:
Single marine windscreen wiper
Custom dashboard to incorporate trailer brake controller, digital thermatic fan switch and reverse camera.
twin heater radiators. It has a single one now and a second one will eb a bonus.
and vanes to direct air from heaters. Windscreen demister is required also for cold weather.

I don't recall seeing a "running board" or similar on a trike before.
Does it also add regidity? I like how it's notched so it's not in the way when getting in and out of the vehicle.
I've seen those style roofs as aftermarket for old bugs years ago - cute in your application.

The "ladder bars" as they call them here in Oz are an option. Normally they just have a single bar. I wouldnt do without them. They do add a little strength but nothing substantial.
The roof is my own design. Yes have seen the bug roof trikes on the net and a few are ok but some not so. Most improtant I think to get the design right.
It is a head turner. Stop at a town and the cameras come from all over...
