question for Mr Rooney,

can i chop the battery stand/holder off?
i'm guessing no as its welded to the chassis.

Kev will correct me if I'm wrong,

It's a bit of a minefield to be honest. From speaking with Tech at VOSA ( DSVA now ) they really expect anything shown on a factory chassis diagram to remain there BUT will allow removal of small body mounts , fuel tank supports depend on how big what and where they are. The small brackets on the back of a Herald chassis , and also on Realiant Scimitar that servo no purpose other than tank supports can definitely NOT be removed whilst undergoing the rebodying process. Unitary / Monococque items tend to be much more clearcut .For instance you CAN'T remove an engine mount from the body and they would expect you to make an adaption between block and monococque.


I stand corrected. Thanks Kev.
 Must be hell for special commercial/military vehicle builders these days, but then again we had manufacturers chassis drawings, that specified allowable major modifications.

Everything has to go through IVA on the built from new chassis cab Coachbuilt side nowadays. You can do mods to already built stuff on a chassis cab like say remove a horsebox and put on a pick up body using the rebody rules providing no chassis mods. Even after an almost 5 year lead in would you believe their are Coachbuilding comapnies who still hadn't heard that they needed to comply ? Amazes me how many specialist body / chassis builders simply don't keep up with legislation that would stop their business dead?

I recently got involved with one specialist lorry that needed to comply but couldn't that was over 250,000 worth!

Not sure I'd call it classy. It doesn't even have doors, or for that matter, much of anything.
Spend plenty of time at the planning stage and it will save a lot of time and effort later on.
