    Hey guys,
    So I'm doing a resto at the moment and we've put a new engine in, just wondering what we do when it comes to getting a blue slip? I've got no previous rego papers for the kombi.
    Cheers

    Do you have any proof of ownership documents like a receipt from the previous owner? Does it still have old rego plates on it? Any old workshop receipts with possibly the rego number written on it?

    Yep have a receipt, no old plates but I have what is believed to be the old rego number, was a odd sort of guy I brought it off who refused to give me the plates.
    Cheers

    Don't stress too much. You should be able to get your blue slip from a licensed inspector without previous rego papers. The blue slip will be the start of your paperwork collection along with your receipt from when you bought it. The blue slip will have the motor number and the chassis number and hopefully your visit to the RTA (Service NSW now) will not be too difficult. Your greenslip wont be as straightforward as a normal renewal - you have to take the paper copy with you to the RTA - you can't do the online version like a renewal, so keep that in mind as well. I have been through it myself where it took 4 trips to the RTA in 1 day after the blue slip guy made a mistake on the blue slip. Got there in the end.

    After the resto on my '63 SC I went to the RTA with receipt in hand and they refused the receipt as it did not contain the chassis number. I wound up signing a stat dec at the RTA office to say that the purchase was genuine. All went well from there.

    Okay thanks guys, sounds like fun! Hopefully if I'm friendly to the rta they'll be friendly back.
    And hopefully there's no issues have a different engine number.
    It's all a part of the journey I guess:rolleyes:
    Cheers

    Mate-Im in the same boat but in Qld-just this minute been down to transport department,I have no previous rego papers but was told that as long as I have roadworthy cert and receipt of purchase all I have to do is pay the $$,plates are mine and I'm good to go.Sigh-my mechanic just rang and told me that back brake shoes are shot-oh well what's another $400 (about the cost of seatbelts which I thought were last piece of the puzzle).Be all worth it when I'm cruisin down to Yamba next school holidays

    There's always something isn't there.... It's a never ending story..... Hopefully once that's done you're good to go

    Agree that $400 seems steep, going to have a go at this job soon, doing the lot while I'm there, lines, cylinders, etc... Should be fun haha.
    Cheers Guys

    Attitude goes a long way so just be super nice - all it takes is someone to be having a bad day and if you bite back, they can make things really difficult when it doesn't need to be :)
    Good luck.
