NZ Low Volume Certificate for modified vehicles
 
I started this thread because questions were filling up Mike's Calais BBQ thread...


For a list of Low Volume Vehicle Certifiers CLICK HERE

Mark Stokes in Auckland has done a few of my cars and is a very reasonable guy highly recommended

some one asked before if my plenum has to be certrd.it might have to be,but the hole that i cut in the guard to put the intercooler pipe through has to be.its just my exhaust tat is too loud and thats why dad wont give me a wof.

NZ EVLHSV 13-01-09 07:26

Your plenum might get listed on the induction part, but I don't think so. The hole is ok and won't get listed on the cert

Mine was certed when it had only 1 muffler and was quite a bit louder than when any of you guys saw my car. I don't think Mark Stokes will mind if it's louder than WOF standards, but things may have changed. It's easy enough to add another muffler if he asks you to quiet it down anyway

ive just gone through the process a freinds car, theyre really big on bump stops and shock placement at the moment, the engine not so much anymore from what ive just seen.

Took my brothers Civic to go get certified yesterday for the Airbag suspension and being shaved etc etc.....everything is all good on it now...just needs to tweak a couple of things and secure a couple of things a bit better and its all go

So are those things in the rear bumper his tail lights?

NZ_BT1 13-01-09 11:06

Yep ones brake lights and tail lights....and the other red ones are indicators....perfectly legal the cert man said :) they are LED's only thing he has to do with them is put a resistor in the power feed to slow down the flashing speed for the indicators

NZ EVLHSV 13-01-09 11:10

Sweet. Not my cup of tea, but I can appreciate the work thats gone into it

NZ_BT1 13-01-09 11:13

He has done alot of welding and shaping to get it like that......to fill in all the hollows and holes where lights and door handles etc were....did most of it himself hes only 19 so hes done quite well if you ask me :) him and his mate put the airbags in to

NZ EVLHSV 13-01-09 11:22

I can see that, and I agree he's done very well. What colour is it going to be painted?

NZ_BT1 13-01-09 11:23

Hes not sure yet I dont think.....I have no idea what colour its going aye....all hes gunna do now is paint it then get started on the BT1 :D

SIKVLT 13-01-09 16:42

those tail lights would've looked abit better if they were flush with the bumper to go with the whole smoothed/shaved theme but I agree takes heaps of work and vision to do this to any vehicle

NZ VLCT 06-02-10 14:03

dont shag about putting resistors in the indicator circuit, just replace the flasher relay with an electronic one, it will always flash at the perfect speed no matter what the indicators lights are up to.

NZ_bt1vlt 06-02-10 15:05

i didnt put resistors in i replaced the old indercator with the bulb, just put the bulb back in. it slowed it down, cert guy told me to do it lol.
i tryd to get the tail lights flush but i couldnt as the bumper is curver ALOT and the leds are straight. all painted now going to sell it and get bt1 on the road hehe

my old car had the holes for the intercooler piping listed on the cert plate

NZ EVLHSV 08-02-10 07:52

I hope the paint on your BT1 turns out better than that!

SIKVLT 20-06-10 18:00

Can anyone tell me if it's ok to relocate the battery to the boot area of a wagon i'm guessing I'd have to box it, seal it and vent it to the outside

UNONT2 20-06-10 18:02

yep,and mabye have a sealed battery as well mike

yeah man prety sure what youve said is all correct

SIKVLT 20-06-10 18:32

cheers guys

ss nut 21-06-10 15:07

Just have it in a correct battery box.Normal battery is OK.

hsvhel 21-06-10 15:44

to avoid venting, go for a sealed battery, bit more expensive but saves the mucking around

NZ_BT1 21-06-10 16:11

Or just leave the battery in the front where it was intended to be when Holden designed the car :p
