    Cheshire SGT build

    The aliminium panels on my car were chromate coated before being satin powder coated. That was 20 years and 35000 miles ago.

    Post IVA registration

    Hi Marcus The simple answer is that the IVA tester examines the car to see if it conforms with the build regulations. Assuming it passes they give you a certificate which you send to the DVLA with all of your major bills and they then decide if it has a new registration or 'Q'. Brian.
