Re: National ICV & LVM Association
The link does not take you to an article it just takes you to the site.
A look at the thread would be good to get a feel for the issues driving this.
The issue with the system is it is designed for new vehicles.
Specs required by the ADR dont always suit a 1965 car.
Example the headlamp height rule, a GT40 will not pass unless it is raised.
I was asked to fit a number plate bracket on the front, I was going to fit the plate to the grill, but know you need a bracket.
The main issue is not the rules it is the people you deal with. the narrow minded cant see past the rule book and use common sense.
I found the inconsistencies between one inspector and the other was shocking.
A new head took over the dept when I was doing mine, I expressed my view that it was unprofessional how the whole processes was conducted, if it was a business you would go broke.
The inspector I was dealing with told me that when stability control and air bags become compulsory that will fuck you guys right up.
Just a vindictive little prick.
It was ruled that ICV would be exempt as it would kill the industry.
That must of killed him.
I dont know if its any different these days but that is what I found.
I had no issue with the ADR rules but needs to be adjusted to suit a replica in some area,s.
I think a relaxing of the emissions would be neat,maybe back to the previous requirement.
Its getting to the point VW cant pass it.
I like driving on the road but I will probably never do another registered ICV again for all the above.
All my experiences are from 5 years ago.
If you are looking signatures or experiences I am good for that, If you are asking for me to hold a banner on the stairs at parliament I wont be doing that.
I am not looking for a desk full of paper work as I wont be going the ICV road again is what I am saying.
If you say its to hard you have
