    NEVER!!! give or tell them any more than they ask for. The more there is for them to read, look at the more scope there is for a cock up.
    Well that’s my experience anyway.

    The first one was a problem because you gave them too much info !! One photo of donor complete , one photo of donor chassis stripped , one photo of completed project with all photos showing the number plate. Fill in a V627/1 form to go with it and it's a walk in the park.

    I'd try to give threee quarter shots all from the same side . You can TAKE loads in case they ask for more just don't send them !! LOL

    Chopping the roof isn't an identity issue on a chassied car .

    Take the pictures of the finished car in the MOT bay at the time of the test you will need for the changover. I did this and did not get an inspection. Do not know if it made a difference or not.

    Rebodies tend not to get an inspection just a yes or no. We had to BEG for an inspection on the last one they refused ( incorrectly).

    Kev, does a re-body affect Historic status, e.g. saloon to convertible (or roadster if they use that term)? What if the body is a repro, e.g. Brookville, United Pacific?

    No problems with repro body ONCE in Historic . Current info I have is that DVLA still require original body to enter into Historic for first time unless Neil ( VHRA ) has anything to the contrary as I know negotiations were being tried?
