Don't need reverse lamps for WOF ?? Bonus ! Although reversing in the dark out on a farm with no lighting sucks will def be hooking em up !! Had to keep my foot on brake to give me some lighting haha

Ahh wing mirrors yeah I'm not 100% sure on that one I no I'm gna need a high brake light in rear window but wanna get a small compact led one not those big hidious black boxes you can buy :(

Going for a wheel alignment straight after work . will hook up windscreen sprayer setup tonight n hopefully change over to my electric ignition n get that working.

Looking at going for wof mid to late week see what it fails for if anything..

Maybe little things but I've replaced everything so won't be a biggie.

Photos dont do car justice got to see it in person.

Classic car insurance ! Which companies have you guys,found good to deal with n which should I stay away from ?

Will have to be somewhere with agreed value n looking at 12-14k insured

Cheers

Don't need reverse lamps but as you say. Definitely handy.

I've passed warrants without side mirrors on my '73 but can't say whether I should have or not. Had the rear view though.

You don't need a high-stop unless your vehicle was first registered in NZ after 1990. (IIRC, might pay to look it up to check)

Windscreen washers only have to work if they're there. So if you remove the bottle and pipes, it doesn't have to work. However, if you have the bottle and pipes and the bottle is empty, you fail. Go figure.

WoF has some lol requirements.

After. So yours should be fine for not needing one.

I've had to put one in an MA61 and one in an R30, but it depends who does the warrant because I pulled it straight off the 30 again and have never had to put one back on through 2-3 more checks.

I just checked the nzta website and under washer system it has this

Windscreen wash system

7. A wash system component is missing or insecure.

8. The wash operating device is missing

So does that mean I'll have to hook that up as well ? Going for WOF this arvo

Interesting, I wonder if that's changed recently as my old WoF guy used to just tell me that what I said above. My old R30 and wagon passed under the same thing as well.. No bottles/lines/jets mean no washer system.

I'd just not have anything there and try your luck at worst you have to install it which you will want to do anyway, I would assume.

Passed my 81 van with no wing mirrors, even though it had the holes for them. Will be putting them on anyway as visibility is pretty poor in it.
