as for donors 'davem' mentions re-titleing. I live in wisconsin, and i've tried to find out the feasability of building one here. Can i assign the donor VIN to my FFR? this would simplify things, i think? I had gotten one lead from a guy in Eau Claire from FFR, but he never responded with what he did. My spouse is worried about insurance and registration/inspection.
That would be me and I apologize if I did not get back to you. My AOL email account gets inundated with Junk mail and yours may have been a victim of my delete finger.
Registration in Wisconsin was very easy for me.
3 forms were needed. Two I got from the Internet and 1 from the Madison office.
1 form was the Title application MV5. The other form was the Hobby application for registration of a Hobby vehicle MV2388. And the third one was sent to me by the DMV and had a couple of fields that needed to be filled with my signature. Print out the two from the NET and call the DMV in Madison for the third one.
I had two $ receipts:
1 provided by FFR showing price of Kit
1 provided by donor seller
The two added together was the declared value for sale taxes. I also sent in the Certificate of Origin provided by FFR to show proof of origin and ownership.
Registration in Wisconsin is a piece of cake provided one does not live in one of the counties that require emission testing. Insurance? that one you are on your own. I used K&K and have the 2500 mile limit which is plenty good for me.
Questions? Send me an email and I'll be Happy to answer them. You are also free to drop by anytime or call me @ 874-6429.
I would not let reg/ins stop me from building this car.
