Non NA cars had them, but I believe any Federalized car had to have at least one airbag.
There are long discussions on here from years ago about not crossing components of the street and track safety systems. I don’t get the Elise out much but I still have a cage and six point harness and removable Sparco wheel. Deff worse than what you are doing.
But I still maintain the the three point street belt system is designed for us to pivot forward into an air bag with a sudden forward g force (crash!). As a Dentist, we don’t see busted out front teeth from steering wheels much any more, but people over 60 tell stories of such when I ask how they lost their front teeth.
When I drove the 1974 Europa, my body was a collapsible protector for the chassis.
Apologies if I detracted from this fabulous project. Hope to see her at some LOG
