Marc F - I am currently waiting for a reply from the DVLA.
One of my questions was could I apply for the V5C change when the "re-body" was complete?
My logic to them was that this would allow time for the paperwork to be completed while I finished the build.
Then I could apply for insurance, MOT & tax when the time came with a matching V5C.

I'd also echo Dave's point about avoiding the word kit in the application.

Currently I plan to supply invoices for the following:
- Donor car - Rolling chassis, dash, petrol tank, steering wheel, fuel cap, etc.
- Sammio Cordite - Bodyshell, rear internal framework, floor pans
- 2nd hand body tub - Bulkhead, rear wheel arches
- Aero screens x 2
- Plywood for cockpit panelling
- Etc.

This should make it clear I am NOT using a "kit of new parts", but a collections of old, new & home made parts.

Hope that helps, Paul.
