    Hi,

    Just interested in your thread about changing the v5 details as itís something I need to do on another kit car conversion I have.

    I thought I need to sell it as the internet keeps telling tales of the need for inspection at IVA offices before they change the v5 etc.

    I know itís ok if you have receipts of the build which is great if the owner did all the work, but like you I have no receipts as it was done a long time ago by a previous owner.

    That build form pdf seems to insist on receipts so did you submit it then they asked or did you ring them and when you explained they didnít need the form?

    Thanks for listening! I keep reading such conflicting stories itís tougher than building the actual car!
    Mine wouldnít need an Iva anyway as itís a mr2 with an Italian kit on but visually it doesnít resemble an mr2 now so needs a model name change.

    Regards
    Mark
