Legalities on altering a vehicle..

So if someone brings over a legally imported truck (from LRUK that was actually one of the nicest trucks I've seen..ran perfect) and then proceeds to remove and sell the roof and all doors, put some cheesy looking tube doors on that close with a home made friction lever, throws in some of those cheap pep boys racing seats and just bolts the seat belt down through the floor, slaps on some kind of roll bar, once again bolted to the floor and not the frame, would this be a violation of DOT rules..??. Here in Florida we don't have inspections anymore of any kind, but what about other states, do they fault something on an obviously unsafe alteration..??
I know from a litigious viewpoint it's an accident away from a lawsuit nightmare but I thought during all of this homeland security thing that I heard that DOT has right for up to one year to come and re-inspect any vehicle for continued compliance..??
