Do you have a VIN plate as well or just the chassis number?

Here are the WOF rules https://vehicleinspection.nzta.govt.nz/virms/in-service-wof-and-cof/general/vehicle-identification/vin-and-chassis-number

Yeah has the original vin plate with all the info; model, engine, frame number, colour etc.
The frame number is what’s stamped on the firewall and barely visible. 
Might just wire wheel it back and light coat it to save any issues

If it helps when I (rattle can) painted a bike frame recently I painted one coat, waited for it to dry, put a strip of masking tape over the stamped number and then continued painting. At end took off tape and it was right colour and easy to read.

anything other than bolting it in as per this

http://lvvta.org.nz/documents/suplementary_information/LVVTA_LVV_Cert_Threshold.pdf

 

needs cert,

 

and then you would have to comply with this

http://lvvta.org.nz/documents/standards/LVVTA_STD_Seats_&_Seat_Anchorages.pdf

 

If you adapt the seat to bolt to the original anchorages in the floor, the cert requirements are fairly easy

If you drill holes etc in the body, you will need to make new anchorages, which depending on your skill level, can be quite challenging.

I'm putting mx5 seats in my escort and my question is, certwise, is it easier/cleaner to modify the original escort seat rails to suit the mx5 seats or the mx5 seat rails? I will be keeping the original mounting positions and holes, and wont be changing the original floor mounted belts.

As far as cert goes , if you can mount to the original anchorages in the floor that makes things easier. As far as which  ones to use, I'd use the mazda runners if you can because they will be nicer than escort ones

Last one from me. I'm fitting a rear seat in my escort van (original estate seat) which flips down when not in use. I need to make two supporting towers which hold the back rest in place when the seat is set up to be used, so it doesn't swing back or forth. There are two bars welded on the back of the seat above the wheel tub to work with.

Do I need a locking latch on each tower? Or can I have a locking latch on one, and a plastic block to rest on, on the other?

@ Clint, getting closer to some yearly progress on the car - in preparation for Cert/finishing it off.

Have driveshaft loop doubler plate inside, but would like to put the carpet in and do some other interior jobs, is photo's sufficient of the mounts - without/without a rule beside them. Or am I best to leave the carpet out?

You might want to talk to your certifier,  but I would accept a photo with a ruler next to it, might help if you take a pic of the plates before you fit them to show the rounded edges as well

How complicated is fitting airbag seats in a different car when doing the cert? Liking the idea of some Audi seats up front in my vy commodore so i can have heat for my bad back in winter.

Providing i can get the equipment talking correctly and not fire myself through the windscreen has been considered.

Dunno, only ones I've been involved with have been removal due to putting aftermarket seats in, or fitting late model seats in old cars where you leave it disconnected 

 

Might be easier to fit the heat pads into your seat?

Commodore seats the foam padding is pretty crumbly now in all of them so options are $1000 at least to get them fixed..... or get some S3 or S4 seats for 4-500$ and throw them in when i cert car.

Some guy asked "does it have a cert for widebody"

Surely this isn't a thing if the parts are bolt on replacement front guards, glued/clipped on bumper extensions, I.e. no welding

 

If the rear quarters have had the arch cut (which they probably should have to be able to properly fit a widebody) then as I understand it, that needs cert.

I’ve got a 69 Datsun 521 Ute with a shit chassis, I’ve found a 73 Datsun 620 chassis that is near perfect. I’ve gone over all the part numbers and measurements on both chassis and the only real difference is the petrol tanks are mounted on different sides (521 on left,620 on right). So if I bolt the cab into the 620 chassis how do I get this on the road? The 521 has dead reg but the 620 has live plates on hold, it’s just a bolt over swap

It will need to be registered as the 521, as it is what it looks like. So get the 521 rego alive and then go through the cert process as per normal.

FYI - my memory tells me that @Chris.QCR did a very similar conversion back a decade ago
