I went down this route a while back and couldn't work out if it would be road legal or not. Now I understand to get a SVA is very different to an MOT. So for example if you have a kit car and it has sharp edges you can put tape over the offending items for the SVA and remove it later! Now if you made a kit to fit to the model works car (lights, bumpers etc etc) for the sva. Put it in for the SVA and get a V5C and number plate would it also be MOT free? If so then its not a problem... We can make a SVA kit and pass it around
If a MOT is still needed, what is needed?
My car (Petrol 1933) had broken wipers and the motor (mounted on the winscreen) needed rewinding. So I removed the whole lot (blades/motor etc) and becuase they wern't fitted for the MOT it passed?
So really we need to understand whats needed for an MOT on a modern steam car?
