We have just been notified by the guy who did the roof conversion on our 78 series Troopy that according to Vic Roads we now need an engineer's report. When it was done last year we were told there was no need. Has anyone else needed a report for a similar conversion (?cost of report) or is it a new requirement and can it be made retrospective?

Go to the VIC transport/rego site and have a look there. Maybe they have a1330 number you can ring. If a law has been passed recently regarding this matter then you can ask for the details. I doubt if it can be made retrospective. It could be that the fella who did the work should have had an engineers report at the time and failed to do so and is now trying to pass the buck.

Spoke to One of the tech's in VicRoads standards section and he couldn't see why an engineers report was required for that mod.

perhaps if you are adding seats or extra axles or something but they didn't seem too concerned about it.

try 03 9854 2651 and talk to John
