    The bits used are down to doing a bit of research , it is also possible to use a lot of original stuff if you take a bit of time to check them over and modify slightly.

    Looks good.
    Just a question, is the upright rear number plate a requirement of the test? As they are normally raked back into the rear valance I presume that's the reason. Not meant as a criticism and it doesn't detract from the overall style of the car.

    that looks fine, the foglight and reversing light are incorpatated nicely, the upright numper plate is the only differance to what people are used to. what year plate will it be put on?

    Yes, provision must be made for fitment of a plate and should be as vertical as possible for the purposes of the test .

    It will be on a Q plate which Tim is quite happy with.

    This can be avoided by using 2 major components from a donor logbook ( which you then supply to DVLA at point of registraton ) . Most people use an engine and gearbox but a mixture of axles or steering is also acceptable.

    Using a crate motor would result in a modern engine spec emission check and VOSA are aware of the block numbers used

    So say you bought a rusty T plate Camero ( ABC 123T ) you would be issued with *** ***T which would allow you to transfer any plate to it which made it look older.

    mmm, that means if you had a steel 34 coupe body had engine /box from a 60 impala the finished car would run emmision exempt, tax exempt and black/silver plates with six digits.

    You wish !

    Emission exempt ...yes, tax exempt ...no ,but in the lowest bracket ie £195 pa . It would still be registered as a new car ( 2010 in this case) and must use reflective plates conforming with BSau 145d which is the new smaller New Charles Wright Font , not far off the same size as Stateside plates but with slightly thicker characters.

    I have found a supplier of pressed plates as well for those that don't want acrylic.
