Looking for Model A roll cage / bar ideas...

I have this Little 5 window coupe that was my very first car in 1971. I took it from my Dad and never gave it back. It burned to the ground Many years ago and has been in deep storage since the late 70's. Now is the time to res-erect it. Im going to take off the body one more time and get rid of all the blue and go with a more traditional late 60 rod look. Im thinking it would be prudent and a good time to make a semi cage in it. I was thinking a hoop at the "B" pillar and one all the way to the back. Then two cross bars one at floor level and one just below the window line. The goal is to give me a little more protection but not make it super noticeable. Any Ideas, thoughts, pros or cons? Its going to be used to its potential but not too crazy if that makes any sense?
