It's done.  Whew!

Armed with my documentation, I hit DMV as soon as they opened.  After careful review of my paperwork, the only puzzlement was how to calculate sales tax.  NY obviously wants their share.  After a couple of phone calls, I got sent home to do some photocopying of receipts.  All major components, they say...

So, I photocopied and I photocopied.  I ended up with $2069 worth of "major" components that were not taxed at purchase.  This stuff includes CL purchases like tires and trans and other purchases like seats and glass.  I included lots of photocopies of stuff that shows that tax was paid too.  Two copies of each, one for DMV and one for Sales Tax.

Hit the office for Visit #2 right after lunch break. Other than a glitch with the VIN on the ins card, I walked out with plates.  He also advised that the title will likely take a while because of the document review and that this type of transaction requires a mandatory tax audit.  I should expect a call from the (DMV) tax department.  Bah!  >:(

Not pretty but functional...

1" square tube frame with 16g tacked to one side,
a hole cut for glass, one manual wiper



Old pic, now hinged on the bottom as all jeep windshields should be  ;D

Well, as sMike predicted, Geico dropped the Willys.  >:(

After some phone time with their underwriter, I learned that it was because it was a replica/kit. If I wanted to keep just liability on it, I could include it with some other vehicles in my fleet. So, I transferred the Corolla to them.

Hopefully, that's the last of the drama.

Beginnings of a hood made. It'll stay like this until I can figure out a way to roll the sides, then just rivet them on...

I think Jeff Hall can help you on this. He just got an English roller when I stopped by few months ago.
