Hi
Its time to decide what to do with my buggy build I started 9 years ago. Yes I know. Long time. Illness, kids getting married, kids buying houses, grand children and so on. And in all this time a lot has changed in terms of IVA. Its not far completed sort of.
It not registered so no V5. Its been shortened. Am I right in saying that there is no way I can this passed now being its been modified?
Whats my options? Is there any point in carrying on? Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.
DJ

9 years is nothing   :-X

"Technically" you should be putting through an IVA as it is indeed a new build, others on here can guide you through that one.

However, what do you mean not registered? Have you never had a number plate or V5 for the vehicle at all?

Donor chassis must have had something else how did you ensure it was not stolen?

Have you tried searching any of the official sites with a chassis number to determine the reg number ?

I seem to recall that you may be able to trace a reg number with DVLA using a chassis number, but cannot remember how?

That would be my first thing to try.

Lwb or swb buggy, nothing has changed over the last 9 years except the IVA has become stricter. As David says mire details are needed.

Hi can I just stick in my two penny worth.  When I bought my buggy it had been off the road for 11 years, and was a non runner when I bought it last October.  Mainly little niggly problems which many on here have heard about, but with the help and advice from this forum mine now runs (still needs little jobs doing ) but the fun in driving it when it's running well is worth all the hassle.
Same as Paul said don't give up it will get there in the end. Cheers Deb

Cheers all. I bought it as a rolling chassis from a breakers for 50.00. It had no V5 with it. It does have a chassis no, but no trace of its original plate unfortunately. I'll finish it regardless see what happens. I'll keep hammering on as you say. Thanks  ;-)up

 you could by another pan or complete donor with a V5 and reg if you are still early in the build swapping a body and axles is easy enough.
