For Questions Regarding WOFs/CERTs/NUMBER PLATEs

Recommended Posts

Quicker to scan a QR code than read and enter a VIN (accurately) into anything. 

Can understand why they are considering it. Must be a decent number of certs voided the next day / that afternoon due to modifications after the fact.

I would be so keen for this to be implemented, had a continual pain with VTNZ failing the Niva for the rim/tyre combo not being "OE" as stated on the plate even though they haven't changed, quick picture of the car from cert day would tidy over, no fuss.

You may have already tried this, but you might be able to sweet talk the LVVTA to provide you the photos / some documentation to keep in the glovebox. Worth asking anyway. KKtrips would know.

I see there being a great market in bootleg lvv discs that QR code  link to a hacked page showing sick modified car as all legal occifer...

No different to people faking plates/declarations as they do now. Expect a trip to court wnen you get caught. 

This has been thought of and there is a mitigation in place. Not sure if it is my place to say though.

Also people will be able to access the info without an RFID scanner. You will require 2 codes to be entered manually in place of an RFID scan. It won't be a number plate as one because they change.

Cannot do. Photos and paperwork is the property of NZTA. Can provide a copy of the cover page only. Which you should have anyway. Though the information on the cover page will only explain the abbreviations on the cert plate.

Valid point, instead I managed to find a wof guy who is legit to deal with, I dread having to take the car anywhere else for that reason though.

VTNZ would always be a crap shoot, even with a stock car. :P

I didn't realise NZTA would block access to the photos. So any progress towards allowing inspectors / new purchasers from actually checking vehicle setup vs what it was certed as would be a plus IMO.

Hopefully I don't have any issues with tyres come wof time, plate says OE. OE are 165SR13 and I'm running 175/60R13 - it would probably take an anorak to pick up on it being an issue though. Speedo is bang on

Not sure this is the right place to post but we will see.

It's nearly time to ship my truck to welly for the cert and I think I should probably get some insurance for the trip and for once it is (hopefully) on the road.

Has anyone got any recommendations for companies that understand the needs?

I have the bus insured with Star Insurance, they have been really good to deal with so I might give them a go first but I would appreciate any advice.

Not sure if its relevant to your vehicle or situation,  but Swann insurance give a club discount if you mention you are a member of oldschool

I have my Plymouth insured with classic cover on “project cover” which means it is covered at home in the garage but also during transport to and from workshops.

I spoke to Star, they were pretty good. They have a specific resto type cover for unregistered and project cars as well. This covers all the parts not attached to the vehicle as well, it was about $250/yr.

They wanted info on the truck before giving me a quote for that, I should hear tomorrow.

Both the transporter company and the cert guy have insurance though, but best to be safe.

I have a q for @cletus if you are around..

I have decided to replace all the seatbelts in the truck as the fronts were ok but not great, and the rears were fixed not reel. My cert guy said he would have to look it up to see if the fixed ones were ok, but I told him I may as well replace them all. The rears shouldn't be a problem but the fronts might be interesting.

The reels fit ok as does the end mounting. The center mounts have both been modified slightly but are in the factory orientation, about 45 deg from horizontal and sloping back. This was fine for the floppy original sockets with a slightly factory bent mount. However it isn't great for the stalk orientation of the new ones. If I bolt them on as is the stalk will either be facing up and back behind the seat or laying down beside the seat.

The easiest solve is a 90 deg angle bracket, this will allow me to position the stalks exact where I want them.

But will it be allowed and if so is it something I can fabricate myself? I scoured the manual but couldn't find anything relevant.

Chur in advance.

Cant see why not, you can buy 90deg angle brackets that are just a bit of flat bar bent to 90deg 

I'd make it out of 30x3 minimum and use the correct seatbelt size bolts and dont make it too long ( ie the buckle bolt is as close to the floor anchorage as it can be, not offset ) and you should be fine 

Scratch built vehicle has to have retractable lap diagonal web clamp belts in the front, and retractable lap diagonal in the back , according to my interpretation of the rules, which is in the frontal impact standard at lvvta.org.nz , and the nzta virm

Belts.JPG.a7a3ccb7521d365325619131356094b1.JPG

The DynaSar will be NA (probably).

So must have
- dual sensitive in the front outer 
- lap in the front middle
- dual or single sensitive in the rear outer
- lap, static, dual sensitive or single sensitive in the rear middle

edit - sorry I thought you were asking a question about what type of belt you had to fit.

Ok sweet, the brackets can be pretty compact so won't have too much leverage on them.

@KKtrips yes it's NA, utility vehicle. There are only 4 seats.

I got proper reels that cost money, not the $80 repco ones, although I will check the spec tomorrow.

You will be able to visit Julian in a week or so for a look see if you were inclined...

No, unfortunately, he is about an hour and a half drive from my work. 2 hours from home.

You driving it over?
