Who told you this?

Best to check with the WA guys here but I suspect it's the same as in Sydney, if your car is stock, all you need to do is change the headlights to Aus. headlights and get a blue slip.

You need to change seat belts and see an engineer if you upgrade brakes, suspension, etc.

As far as I know the strictest state is SA and the car has to be stock but I believe they're looking into getting it inline with the other states.

Hi Alan, some guys ie. Nathan (aussie68) Scott (sad001) have used Brett Silich ( in Darlingtion) 0418-144-371 brett.silich@wallabyeng.com also Luke (Zappa) just got his camaro licenced not that long ago but not sure if he used an engineer.

Also might be worth checking out the dept of transport WA
-under: my vehicle/ construct or modify a vehicle/engineering or modification reports and certificates.
- IB-102 vehicle safety and standards, information bulletin, (updated March 2017) engineering and recognised signatores

For the seatbelts I thought you had to have the Australian standard stalks at least that have the orange button on them , ie.



So I guess 3 point as well. At least for full rego anyway.

I talked to a vehicle inspector. He said the belts have to be ADR,as do flexible brake lines. I have sorted the lights anyways.
he said then it has to be signed off by an engineer.

If it was pre ADR ie 1970ish then just take it over after changing headlights

Ah, my mistake, I didn't check the year. Yeah, after 1972 the ADR is for lap sash seat belts and conform to AS with the details/stamp on the tag.
