I have just started rebuilding a Manx knock off.
Around my 50th birthday I decided it was time to start working on the bucket list and build a car .I asked a buddie at work if he knew of any projects laying around and He told me about a dune buggie project at the back of a Buds shop.Off we go for a look .Up goes the door and i couldn't beleive it. the last time I had seen this buggie i was 12 years old and it was at the end of our back alley .I payed for it there and then!
All the work done to it previous is well done and mostly needs TLC .Of course the first thing I did was take it apart .
Now my question
Is there a list on the net. for inspection .There are no papers and part of the registaion process is an inspection and certifcate and I would like to do It once, as it could get expenive if I have to keep going back.

This ^

If it has a VIN on the pan then it can be registred and insured as a regular beetle.. No inspections required...
lost or missing papers can be re-issued

If you know the owner, you can have them go in to any autoplan agency and get the papers reprinted for $18. If you don't know who owns it, you can request the name from ICBC for $7. After that, you have to send a registered letter to the owner at the last known address. If the letter gets returned, you can get a notary to sign off on a statutory declaration explaining how you obtained the vehicle. Bring that and your returned unopened registered letter, the letter from ICBC and you can register the vehicle.

or something there abouts Rolling Eyes

oh and the number on the pan in that location is the vin

Are you sure? Would be great if this was true, but it seems like it's never that easy.

Guess it depends who you get to do your insurance... in my world it is that easy.

Our buggy is registered as a 72 beetle per the original vin ... no issues and no inspections required.

Have you ever been pulled over driving the buggy? Just wondering what a cop would have to say about it.

Nope... buggy is still being built but the paper work is all in order.

I've been hassled by the dregs of society before for other things and personally care less about what they have to say about it.

As long as it meets the safety/emission requirements of the year that it's registered as it should be good to go... unfortunately for me that means that mine has to comply to 72 regulations

all fired up today ,so off I go to ICBC and ask for a VIN # search
After a mini meeting I am sent the Service BC center.
I ask for a VIN # search .I am told there are no leans against the car.
I think of all the parts spread all over my shop and am happy with this .
another lunch hour shot with no food .try again tomorrow at ICBC.
And I thought that getting the bearings out of the axel tubes was a challenge.
