Unfortunately, this may mean that the Kingfisher isn't legal either.

As, my (limited) understanding is that in order to retain the identity of a VW Beetle, you need to keep both floor pans attached to the long tube in the middle.

I am sure this was a clarification that ACE (Association of Car Enthusiasts) received from the DVLA/VOSA.
( But as I wasnít planning to do anything with a VW, I didnít pay too much attention to this. )

I know I have mentioned a guy called Kev/Kapri over on Rods 'n' Sods before, but he really is the expert on this sort of stuff.

As it currently stands, I would work on the basis that, for your project, all roads lead to IVA.

Good luck, Paul.
