Recommended Posts

Yo cleeeeetus. 

My van was certified for a wheelchair hoist which I have removed. No other mods at all. 

Can I remove the plate?

Your waka will need to be looked at by a certifier , plate removed, sent back to LVVTA who then update landata so it doesnt say its modified any more.

I took off the VIN plate to blast & electroplate my bike frame - can I just rivet it back on? cheers

The legal way to do it is take to a tsda

Get them to remove it

Do paint etc

Take back and they refit chassis number

is it okay to have a fuel surge tank mounted underneath a car?

Yep. Easier to make that legal than in the boot too

Too late now as I took it off without even thinking about it at the time - The frame number is still legible and I still have the original vin plate.

It's just hardware store pop rivets holding it on, isn't it? Most importantly, will anyone ever know and will I get hassles from wof inspectors

Do you need to have reverse lights hooked up for cert/wof? 

(I did search this thread and the LVV documents - couldnt find anything specific either way. I did 'see Cletus mention you don't legally need reverse gear (you probably should!?) but if do have the gear and not the corresponding illumination - fail or all good?)

Reverse lights are not needed for a wof 

Is it one of those if they are there, they have to work things?  Like a spare wheel, if it's there, it has to be bolted down.

Interesting, it used to be that if it were there, it had to work (wife got failed on it years ago) but obviously changed now.

eg "Avengers" all have the white part in their tail light, only the higher spec models had them 'working' or the bulbs & wiring fitted

Odometer question:

i understand you need an odometer, but wonder what the rules are?

ive had a car where it broke, had to change the cluster and get a mechanic to write out a thing for it.

if I was to use a motor cycle one what would I need to do?

changing gearbox Witch means changing from mech cable to electronic. Was thinking of feeding it to the link ecu then feeding a motorcycle cluster from the ecu using pwm outputs. And set it up on the bench to get it to read the same as the factory one?

You don't need an odometer unless you pay road user charges.

 

Actually? So the only reason I had to change the cluster in the other cars was the speedo. The letter from the mechanic was just to explain why the od reading is way off???
