At the end of the day, does it really matter to you?

IMO, the car is still going to perform the same regardless of what's written on the number plate and Q plated kits tend to have no stigma attached unlike Q plated production cars...

And I think it wouldn't be good enough to have 2 plus major parts from one car, you would need proof of it, e.g. a donor V5.

This is the debate forming in my mind, so what? It would make life a lot easier to go for the intended end result straight away. I'll give it some more thought. Thank you for the input.

Nearly all done. Annoyingly the last arm I thought I finished went wonky so I need to correct that. Also still waiting for the suspension brackets which should turn up any day now I hope.

I'm off next week which should give me the time to get it on its wheels and the engine, box and diff mounted too.

Give me five million pounds as that's what it'll take to get me making more. Hated it.

You need 8 points to get an age related plate. You really don't need anything from the original car and the engine has identity but is only 1 point! Gearboxes, axles, transmission, steering etc have 2 points and no identity. The big point scorer is *NEW* chassis which is 5 points!

"Get an age-related registration number
You can apply for an age-related number if you can prove you’ve used 2 original major parts along with:

*. a new monocoque bodyshell, chassis or frame from a specialist kit manufacturer
*. an altered chassis, monocoque bodyshell or frame from the original vehicle

The registration number will be based on the age of the original vehicle.

Your vehicle must pass the relevant type approval test to get an age-related registration number."

Also if you have a q plate the mot is slightly different and easier for things like emmisions breaks etc etc

Thanks for this Chris - wish I had known it before I bought my failed build, looks like a Q plate for me - unless I can get some cooperation from the original builder of my chassis

Saying all of the above I was quite prepared to take a Q as it didn't really bother me but when i found the above info i just thought I'd try an age related application and see what happened and it worked.
