Frend took his car in for a cert for brakes and gearbox swap and the cert guy wants him to put Dynamat on the floor, is that normal?

Not really,  but there might be a reason, like the floor or tunnel gets really hot

Correct. Reverse lights are a permitted  lamp. So you don’t need them.

Just try reversing your 1973 mini estate with no reversing lights down an unlit winding driveway after delivering pizza to the address at night time. Is that bit of dark darker than the other dark? Yes, it's a post and you have just run into it.

There is a rear fog/park light which I may wire up into a reverse light just in case any poles sneak up on me

I have had my chev V8 rebuilt and it smokes a little on startup. Stinks of burnt oil and is blueish. A quick rev and it goes away so my guess is that one of the rings might be shot seeing as I had all new valve stem seals put in. Haven't compression tested it yet however. 

Does anybody know what is needed for a wof in regards to smoke? I have just moved to a new area so haven't figured out who are the better ones with old cars yet.

If there is no smoke once it warms up when you give it a rev, it will pass.

 

Ta. It's always a bit nervy going to a new wof place after leaving an area where the wof guy was really helpful. Pity it is a 3 hour journey back or I'd go back there. 

If anybody knows an old car WOF specialist in the South Wairarapa please shoot me a message.

If turners is selling a vehicle as dereg, but ltsa shows it as still live, do they dereg it before handing it over? or is it just a mistake on their data entry

Owned 2 bikes in my name for 3 months, they dereged one the day before I picked up, the 2nd they took the plate but didn't dereg

 

The system works

Take it back to the shop who did the rebuild

Nah. It's only a little smoke and isn't using any oil noticeably. After years of it being a project I'm happy for it to just work. 

When it finally throws a leg out of bed it'll be a good excuse to put in a diesel truck engine like I've always wanted to do. I'm just sick of it being a project. Plus whilst I'm building a cabin it it better than a box trailer.

In theory, yes. I can't think of anything like minimum dimensions or things like that that would prevent you from being able to do it

 

However there's probably a lot of things that may trip you up, and make it a lot more challenging to build than a "normal" size car

You would want to do a concept approval first before you start to make sure there are no legal issues with building something that small

 I doubt a Chinese made quad bike frame would get through cert, so you'd probably have to start from scratch there

Because it would be registered as a new car, it would need things like a lap diagonal seatbelt, so it would need a suitable structure to mount it off, then you need to allow for interior impact zones, so that might dictate how small it can be internally

tyres would need to be suitable for road/ car use and load rating, so you might be limited to what is available like 10" mini tyres? 

 

This is by no means a complete list of potential issues, just things that come to mind off the top of my head 

 

And at the end of it, it would still cost a similar amount to cert it as any other scratch built vehicle so there's a fairly high 'entry cost' despite the rest of the car being cheap to build  

 

 

 

There was a guy who tried for ages to get a quad bike legal that had been built from a wrx. From memory, the biggest stumbling block was , 4 wheels= ma class, car.

 

So has to have a round steering wheel, and lap diagonal belts. Both of which change the whole look and design of the vehicle

Are you trying to wind him up?

Question for fred

dereg car with cert, still the full cert process to get it back on the road?

 if the cert matches then it should be OK

 

I have had to get reprints of cert tags when a dereg car gets re reg and ends up with a new 17 digit vin number instead of a chassis number though

So you're saying I couldn't fit an Austin Princess steering wheel to my car?

Change of ownership. Does anyone know what happens with the info the seller submits? I've bought a car for a family member and silly me gave the seller my details so they submitted that info. If I now submit the buyers side and use my family members info, will that end the world?

I do it all online now, easy as (and force buyers to do it on their phone before taking the car). Technically the seller doesn't need to do anything on their end for it to still go through, as long as the buyer does their part.

The information the seller provided about you doesnt change the ownership into your name (just kinda goes into limbo), thats what the buyers part is for, so you will be all gee.
