The issues were with 1 very poorly build aluminium Robin Hood Lightweight which rather tarred the brand.
The 2b is built from round tube stainless much more robust if a little heavy for a 7 but hundreds and hundreds have gone through IVA with no issues.
Suggest you visit Robin Hood Owners club website, helpful bunch and loads of Robin Hoon knowledge

Having built a 2B (with the sliding pillar suspension lopped off and wishbones added) I can say its a pretty awkward kit to assemble well. The design of the rear trailing arm suspension mounting leaves a lot to be desired. Unless its been built exceptionally well I wouldn't consider it. Plenty of other lighter and more sophisticated designs out there for similar money IMHO.

The main issue to find a solution to for the 2b is the lower seat belt mounts, as there is no provision in the chassis for them.
