i would also have a look if its had 6x9s put in the parcell shelf that they havnt hacked the body itself under the parcell shelf. seen it done lots of times and i dunno you may have trouble with it if you need a roadworthy or something. i dont need to get them so i dunno what they check but yeah just a though.

im pretty sure this was a trick with the v6 not the rb30...

Might have been quoted for both at some stage - - bit of bluetack would make it achievable.

Hey guys, im going to look at it this saterday, im not sure if it has rego or not, in his ad he said it did not, but he said over the phone it did (i think, might have mis heard him), so im a little concerened with RWC to get it rego'd.

does anyone know what is required to get a RWC, like what will disqualifi me from getting one?

as far as i can tell from the guy on the phone, it runs well, just has a bit of rust. is rust going to d/q me from getting a RWC?

Thanks again, ill remember to get pics when i check it out.

the list for these things is huge - but they don't tend to check everything all the time (even though they are probably supposed to).
One days when i can be bothered i'll scan the form in for a look.
In short though:
Brakes
Clutch
Electrical
Fuel System
Emissions
Exhaust
Engine (includes leaks)
Body (includes rust)
Steering
Lights
Road test
Seats
Seat belts
Padding and protrusions
Brakes
Park Brake
Mirrors
Steering
Indicators
Horn
Accessories (mounting)
Transmission
Wipers
Washers
Sunvisors (mounting and condition)
Structural
Headlights
Demister
Floor (inc loose material)
Glazing
Doors
Bonnet
Body
Boot
Lamps and reflectors
Ground clearance
windscreens and windows
Wheels and tyres
Driveline
Fuel tank
Suspension
Tow Bar

Each of these have sub headings for checklists. Generally, if the car is in good nick they won't per say go and check each seat for adequate padding etc.

inspections are cheap, but then again it depends where u go ring around.. mind cost me 20 dollars.. it just depends where u go...

you'll also need to pay for a permit "$150 around that i forgot" to drive the vechile to and from the place.. but what u pay u will get it aken off the rego if it passes.. thats how it is in qld.

ps. the permit doesnt mean u can drive the ride around, only to places that ur getting repairs which u need proof if u get pulled over, not to go down the shop and get parts..
