LVV Cert with front mount (GC8)

Hi Guys

Looking for some advise on how people got there cars certed with front mounts? 
My GC8 has a large front mount which meant the stock bumper iron has been removed. 

I am about to go through compliance and certing the car but looking to try and make it as legal as possible first!

Any tips would be great!

LVVTA will probably tell you it needs 14 driveshaft hoops and some other BS that is functionally redundant for these cars.

 

What year is the car? Part of it will depend on whether it needs to meet a frontal impact standard, but if it's caged, and you have a MSNZ authority card, you could probably tube-frame the front using broom handles and they would let it through.

Thanks for the replies. 

The cars ages is a bit confusing. Over seas it was know as a 1999 car. But the chassis number aligns with a manufacturing date of 1996. So I’m not sure how they will look at the frontal impact rules. I asked lvv. But they were not sure.  

It does seem like the authority card route may save some hassles. 

Even for the brake lines. Apparently I would have to go back to steel brake lines. (Replacing the braided nylon hoses).

Going to be a fair amount of work!

If it's caged then you need an authority card anyway.

Agreed.

 

Mine went through cert with a small front mount which bolted to the bumper bar. You could put the bumper iron back in with a slightly smaller front mount for the cert. Shameless plug here, I do have a 550x230x65 core for sale for $100 which should fit.

Thanks. Trying to get through legit so that I can head for a wof without issue. 

The cage is only a bolt in. And I will only keep the rear section. So possibly no authority card needed. 

Is everyone else running a front mount just got a friendly wof guy?

Isn’t the cut off age 14 years. So newer is a fark no, the beam ain't coming off, but older than that date is up to the cert guy. So some bent steel tube would probably do as a replacement if i’m understanding it correctly.

Ask your local cert guy or on FB as mentioned above. They’re pretty good on there surprisingly
