im sure its fine if you do it after you get the car registered because ive got a vh with my air cleaner raised with 3 guages on the bonnet and the only time i get picked on is wen the jacks want to admire it

In VSI 8 (available here: http://www.vicroads.vic.gov.au/NR/rdonlyres/CC48FC10-4D57-4F04-82E1-3BD72EF88340/0/VSI8.pdf ). Or if that link doesn't work, look for No 8 publication in this list (i think it's got one under Modifications): Vehicle standards information : VicRoads

Points 14, 15 and 16 in VSI 8 states all you need to know about bonnet stuff. There is a measuremement a testing officer of a police officer can use to see if it blocks too much of the road view, but i can't find thta document atm.
