I doubt, with both front and rear at that height, no part of your car is lower than 100mm.

But, anyway, no its not legal.

from memory the minimum length for a TA22 between the guard and the centre of the wheel is
- 350mm at the front and
- 335 at the rear

good read for the new guys to have a guide but for some of us with "road" experience will tell ya the cops will what they want in the end even if your is compliant. i had a 1971 datsun 1600 defected for weber carbies, half roll cage, recaro seats and harnesses, i also had the car engineered but the cops still sent it to regency, regency passed it first go. its funny in 1971 there was no emissions to deal with (webers they said went against emissions) the half cage was mounted in the correct position and there was no back seat or belts in the back, the recaro seats met adrs that exceeded the 1971 rules and the harnesses also exceeded the 1971 "sash" belts that were factory fitted. its funny the cops never pulled out rulers or got on their knees to look at clearances under the car they just picked it and defected it.

the cops don't have to prove a defect, they just have to have a reasonable suspicion.

the secret is to play nice - do the old yes sir no sir three bags full sir routine

"is this your car?'
"yes sir"

"have you been drinking?"
"no sir"

"do you have any drugs on you?"
"three bags full sir"

hahahahaha last bit funny as!

i think age comes into it aswell, years ago when i was on my p's (33 now) i got picked on quite a bit, one of the last times i went thru a booze bus i had a 1982 rx7 with back seat folded down and my lads booster seat up front with him riding shotgun and we got pulled into booze bus and the cops clearly seen my lad and never said a word technically he was sposed to be in the back and some might say the car he was in wasnt what ya would call a family car but yeah cops rolled with it.
