Sooooo How much bodywork is required for a car to go on the road? Would be a good lerl to roll round in this as is. Maybe a little drafty.

I'm back on this idea again. 

What happened about this @cletus

Info-2012%20New%20Scratch-built_Modified

 

can I put an open speedster body using the original scuttle and bonnet and not have to worry about cert? Mechanicals are original.

Im considering buying a deregistered rare italian vehicle from the 1960s. It has rust, but not so bad in the scheme of things.

Im not scared of the rust but i am scared of getting it reregistered/certified.

Other than the ownership malarkey (which may also be a bit of a thing - has plates and old stickers but no papers and carjam doesnt know about it), whats the story with the repair certification that it will surely require? Im not interested if i have to pay a guy to do the rust work, but happy to have someone review my work.

Who is a good repair certifier to chat with in Auckland, west preferably.

Basically this this a good idea or have i gone quite mad?

My experience with repair certifiers is fairly limited but Bob Kistemaker is out west and is probably the best one to deal with an older vehicle.

Quite a lot? I've sometimes had leaks mentioned but never a fail point.

Thats promising. The leak from my sump gasket is getting fairly bad and my WOF is due soon. Not sure if ill have a chance to change the gasket before i need a wof. Its coated the underside of the engine, and trans in oil. None leaking on exhaust AFAIK.

Its just some rust proofing. Cmon guys.

Can o' brake clean over the underside the morning of wof day? Thats what 'a friend' does.

Then as long as its not dripping on their heads on the hoist it should be ok

My Civic got knocked back for a wof a couple of times for oil leaks. When I went to fix it I found that some of the sump bolts were barely finger tight. Might be worth just checking all the sump bolts and giving it a clean. Always assuming that the gasket is not completely rooted of course.

@azzurro, definitely save that van. It's like you've found rocking horse shit rare. I've seen one other irl and that was derelict in the '70s.

Oil leaks.

As long as it’s not going to cause a fire or get on the brakes it shouldn’t fail a wof. 

I had a look in the VIRM and didn't see anything specific about oil/ engine fluid leaks (except fuel/brake fluid)

im all for saving it, but not as a folly/lost puppy, it needs to be able to get back on the road within a reasonable budget. 

still, even if the budget blows out it will be cheaper than a kombi!

It falls into the category of anything the inspector seems to be unsafe. 

It cannot be a fail just because it leaks. 

There used to be something about oil leaking onto the exhaust but that was removed. You might get an old boy that will fail that if they haven’t read the virm lately. If there is a lot of oil on the exhaust Iwould fail it. I have seen an oil on exhaust fire before.
