10.8.5

Rigid fuel pipe or flexible purpose-designed automotive braided

stainless steel covered hose may be located within the passenger

compartment of a low volume vehicle, provided that:

(a) the hose cannot come in contact with either the driver or

other vehicle occupants during normal vehicle operation; and

(b) the pipe or hose is secured firmly against the floor at

intervals of no more than 300 mm (12”); and

(c) the hose can be readily inspected for wear or damage; and

(d) there are no pipe or hose joins or connections inside the

passenger compartment, other than for purpose-designed

bulkhead fittings

Cheers mate.. 

I'm sure most fuel hose is braided anyway isn't it

Yeah has to be braided if its inside the car. 

Use ptfe braided hose if it's going inside the car, unless you like the stench of fuel in the car 24-7 , the rubber braided hose leaches out fuel smells

It went to a TSDA to get a new vin, a bit of paperwork and a month or so of waiting and it got a new vin number on a proper tag  

 

Who is the TSDA?

My car has a data entry error.  (The papers show the engine number as the chassis number. (And the engine number again as the engine number) the body tag shows the engine number (as per the registration papers) and also the actual chassis number.  It's clearly some herp-a-derp has monged out and entered the engine number twice when the system was digitized. 

It's pretty straight forward. But the last thing I need is a registration related ball ache.

You need a MR16 form - Application to change vehicle details.

Any NZTA agent should have them. Usually you just fill it out and they'll come back and ask you to provide photos to show the engine and chassis number stamps, should be pretty obvious in your case

Can rubber fuel line be legally routed through the cabin of a road car? 

Then covered by carpet etc etc

Providin you use the correct fuel line, have no connections inside the passenger compartment and it must use bulkhead fittings at each end, it should be OK. But it must also be able to be inspected, so covered by carpet is a no go.

so implying more of an allowance for race/rally cars with stripped interiors

Keep in mind that some codes (ie drag racing) do not allow fuel lines inside the vehicle...

Superb.

I have another car where the papers say Ps10, when the tag says p510.

Out of curiosity, is there a reason you'd use rubber hose instead of a length of hard line?

Have had a few really dodgy ones over the years, a "mitsubishi lancer 1500cc" that had "been converted to a makkinen evo replica" 

And a "V6 commodore with a LS swap" that had really low kms and lots of weird rust almost like it had been hidden in a damp shed for 10 years and you could see where the SS stickers on the doors were and the engine number had been attacked with a chisel and the date tag on the belts didnt match the year on the rego and the vin tag under the glass had heaps of weird scratches on it 

 

Or the VE commodore that had a different vin on the bit under the carpet on the floor to under the glass and in the engine bay because whoever the crackhead that stole it didnt realise there was a chassis number in the floor 

Do you report these vehicles at all? Or just tell them to fuck off

Haven't run the fuel line yet so looking into all options. 

The floor pan doesn't really favour under floor mounting. 

 

The original line was plastic, and only held up by 3 or 4 tabs that were folded over it. 

Original line ran up where the exhaust now sits. 

Exhaust will cross over under the the gearbox crossmember, so exhaust will be both sides, not really allowing any great option for line position.

Theres a form we fill out that they take to vtnz/vinz  

Usually check the ID of the vehicle first and if theres any obvious issues tell the owner to go sort that out before the cert goes any further 

I've only ever had one dodgy one come back with the correct paperwork.  The rest have dissapeared or NZTA has got involved

I spoke to a cop about it once, he said if its had all the original identifiers removed, it is very unlikely that they would ever be able to return it to its rightful owner

I got some nice leather seats from an Alfa 156 for my triumph. But they have airbags. What do I need to do?

 

EDIT: I've since worked out how the upholstery is removed and managed to wangjangle the airbag unit out of one of them. Guess I just need to snip off the "Airbag" tag thingy?

 A vehicle (other than group L vehicle or a class MA or MC motorsport vehicle with a valid motorsport authority card) that was first registered in New Zealand on or after 1 May 2010 and manufactured from 1 January 1990 has a catalytic converter
