    They may have the approval for the seat, but the installer or owner will need to get the compliance for the fitting. It's the same with any non factory seats.

    True Phil so I would suggest peeps to have it fitted by a company that specialises in fitting aftermarket seats. I had my rear Recaro seat frames built by one such company who also arranged engineering. All my Recaro seats and their fitting is engineer approved.

    Probably a lot cheaper that way. Especially nice if they fit a plate. I'm glad that I had the compliance sticker from 1990 on mine as that way it is approved forever. At least in NSW.o_O

    Well l have a roo bar, tow/bumper bar, Peugeot 306 seats and a EJ25, all yet to be approved, and l'm in chronologically challenged position. I'm getting 11" Audi brakes soon and rear discs. I'll go and get it all approved then.

    306 seats are an excellent conversion.

    Back to my other gripe.........:p

    Wouldn’t it be just easier, and make total sense, if your bus was approved forever, wherever you, or a buyer, wanted to register it anywhere in Australia? :rolleyes:

    National Compliance for approved vehicles, just once, to help buyers and sellers, is really needed! :mad:

    At least with a towbar you can say it was put on in 1990 as they didn't need compliance then.

    That's a stupid thing to say. A bit like having the same road rules for all states or have the same gauge trains.:mad:

    I'd like to know why you don't get knocked back trying to register a late '76 Kombi from Victoria in NSW. (NSW had ADR27A)

    Rstucke will make it work but it's a good reminder that JK just sell half what you wanted:( & you thought you bought the full lot with approval:p.
    Lucky Phil's comment is a goer.
    Oxymoron...Government/Sense:D.
    How many government jobs would that kill?:p. No good for 'growth'!:rolleyes:

    Cheers

    Only way that could comply is to be fuel injected or comply with the emission requirements! Not just NSW...it's Aust Design Rules & Aust wide.

    VSB5 a and b are now replaced with a new VSB5.
    Makes it pretty much a commercial biased process rather than including an amateur friendly option with design specs.
    Quite the opposite promised from reforms.

    As Rick points out. There may be some more work required by JK in finalising all details if the kit to make it suitable for sale and ticking all boxes in new regs for owner installers.

    New regs will likely affect re registering unregistered campers with previously fitted rnr beds as well. ?
    Some details are changed.

    No NSW had different engines to other states. ADR rules are not mandatory.

    A similar thing more recent was the Chery. You could buy one new in NSW or QLD but not Vic.

    & Aust Wide. That's why they're ADR's. May be different engines but still must comply. ADR27a was Aust wide regardless of engine/configuration.
    Cheers
