New project?

Thinking of a new project but at nearly 50 the IVA is putting me off. Should I?





Think about it, think about it again and then do it.

50 what?
Age? I was 64 when I put the MK through IVA in 2013.
I don't think that the IVA is age related

Hi

50, so what.. did my first circuit race this weekend at 51..

.. knackered today though



Posted this about somebody wondering about the Hassle of an IVA test when building a Striker about 5 years ago, reckon it's still (if not more so) valid, just substitute your brand of choice for 'Striker':-


The main reason for the 'hassle' is the IVA test - you spend a chunk of cash on it, a smaller chunk setting the car to pass it and another to put the car back to how it would be if you didn't have to bother with it and just had to MoT it.
Thousands if you add it together.

So the advice above is very sound IMHO comes down to this I reckon:-


There are enough Strikers out there to find one in more or less the spec you want.

Then strip it down to the very last nut and bolt, change it back to a 'Kit'.
Build it back up as you see fit.
Fill in a nice simple form if you change the colour or the engine.
Have it MoT'd and off you go.

You still get the 'Kit' experience - but seeing as you took it apart you'll know how to put it back together and learn from the other bloke's mistakes at the same time.

It'll be about half of the cost.
