    i should add, that (under the previous NSW rules) you COULD have harnesses in cars that were built before the seatbelt ADR... ie KE10 (not that there is any need to on the street for driving, and not that it makes it any easier if you got pulled over...)

    An extract from the ADR

    7.3. Harness ‘Anchor Points’
    7.3.1. In cases where only one harness ‘Anchorage’ is provided for a
    particular seating position, the harness ‘Anchor Point’ must be
    located:
    7.3.1.1. ‘Rearward’ of transverse plane inclined at the same angle as the
    ‘Torso Reference Line’ and 500 mm horizontally ‘Rearward’ from
    the ‘Seating Reference Point’;
    7.3.1.2. not more than 50 mm from the ‘Seating Reference Plane’; and
    7.3.1.3. within ‘Area B’ but without the transverse location requirements of
    clause 11.2.1.

    7.3.2. In cases where two harness ‘Anchorages’ are provided for a
    particular seating position, the two ‘Anchor Points’ must be
    located:
    7.3.2.1. ’Rearward’ of a transverse plane inclined at the same angle as the
    ‘Torso Reference Line’ and 75 mm horizontally ‘Rearward’ from
    the ‘Seating Reference Point’;
    7.3.2.2. either side of the ‘Seating Reference Plane’ in such a way that the
    distances from the ‘Seating Reference Plane’ do not differ by more
    than 100 mm;
    7.3.2.3. such that the transverse separation does not exceed 300 mm, and
    is either greater than 250 mm or is less than 250 mm by not more
    than half the horizontal distance from either ‘Anchor Point’ to the
    transverse plane through the ‘Torso Reference Line’; and
    7.3.2.4. within ‘Area B’ but without the transverse location requirements of
    clause 11.2.1.

    I saw a harness advertised somewhere as being ADR approved - had some special buckle\clip mechanism and so on. I'll have to see if I can find it and have a look at it's paper work.

    But It would be easy to do what Mick has suggested...............!

    The IS200 is a great candidate under the NCOP rules for any kind of 'maximum' impact engine, 1UZ TT/SC or 3UZ TT/SC for example. Its just that its sweet chassis loses some of its poise and handling finesse when you start putting additional weight over the front wheels. The IS300 is the example of that, a gruntier car, and perhaps what the IS200 should always have had under the bonnet, but not as good handling wise.

    This is true Mitch, but a 1UZ doesn't weigh much more than a 1G

Mind you, there are strcit restrictions on how you can use your classic car when it's under classic registration.

    I was just wondering about the issues in getting a classic rego car back to full road rego.

    As far as i was aware this was the case, yes. However you're only allowed to drive the car for club runs, maintaince needs, or on sundays.

    Well ive browsed through the NCOP regulations, but cant seem to find anything that say anything to do with spot welding the chassis for more strength when upgrading the engine. Do any of you guys know what the regulations are on this? Im in WA not that this should make a difference 'National Regulations' lol. and its too late at night to be ringing the Licensing centre.
    Cheers.

    I'd be ringing an engineer and asking them something like that.
    Its a bit specific for the NCOP's.

    almost. its changed. CH plates are no longer being issued
    you can actually drive it more often now ; and ; don't need to have something signed by the car club (which you have to be part of one to have CH or the new plates) when you wanna drive it

    $90 a year its gone up to

    and like nathan says - NCOP - in VIC (the speed camera state) i'll believe it when i see it.
