NOTE 6/21/19: The bipac.net link didn't go where it used to go. Here's a new link that ought to work...but if it gets moved again, please let me know and I'll update it yet again.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
This is SEMA's "Everything You Need to Register and Title Your Hobby Car in All 50 States" how-to page. It's been up for a while (mid-2011) but I'd never seen it and it's remarkable. A tip of the hat to Exomotive.com, whose engineer posted this on another forum.

http://www.bipac.net/page.asp?content=t ... x&g=SEMAGA

To quote from the splash page...

Each state is organized as follows:

Definitions: Applicable specialty vehicle definitions for each state are listed separately at the beginning of each state’s document to clarify the language in the statutes and regulations.
DMV Guidance: Information from state titling agencies providing guidance on titling and registering unique vehicles.
The Law: The state's statutes and regulations concerning specialty vehicles.
Equipment and Emissions Exemptions: Information on specific equipment and emissions exemptions for different types of specialty vehicles.
Forms: Printable forms and publications necessary to register and title your vehicle.

Each state’s information can be viewed and printed in its entirety by clicking the state’s file folder.

Thanks, Jack. Even though I had read and re-read my state's information several times, it still had some very useful information that I had not seen before (such as what constitutes a "major part"). Great stuff!

Interesting! I don't need a windshield! But I *might* need an interior rear view mirror?

While these sites may be a good starting point, nothing beats contacting your state regulators/inspectors. Back when I registered mine, the state was constantly updating the inspection requirements. There are state laws, many of which defer the fine details to individual departments, and there are department rules/guidelines/procedures. The LEO told me that new rules came out the week that he inspected mine. He told me that those new rules were likely based on my specific application!

The best I can say is to know your state laws and don't be afraid to question anything that an inspector may request that is not supported by those laws. You may be able to sway his/her "easy way" to your benefit. It worked for me several times during my registration.

Good luck on your build.
