Now I can take all my documents to the DMV and see if I can get a title. This process has been a real pain. Florida and most states, I believe, are requiring the same documentation so that all states use the same universal system. They want a "Manufacturers Certificate of Origin" or an original invoice from the manufacturer. JZR does not issue an MCO and I didn't have an invoice.

I wrote Zeimba and asked for a copy of the invoice which he sent but DMV refused to accept it because it was a photocopy. I wrote Zeimba again and sent him a blank MCO form to fill in and sign which he graciously did. That covered that part. Then since the kit had been sold twice before coming to me plus the US dealer I had to have a bill of sale from each sale. I was finally to get all of those so I'm ready to go. I'll post results soon, I hope.

Update. The DMV refused to accept the MCO document that they told me would be OK. I don't know what to do now.


I finally got the seats covered. I ordered a hide and took it, the foam and plywood bottoms to the trim shop. He did it in 2 days. Leather is sooo nice to sit on. It's cool in summer and warm in winter. Rain is my only issue. I still need to make the carpet and cover the sides of the tunnel and body sides.

Awhile back I had made wraparound brackets to hold the exhaust and thought these will be great. Then someone suggested that the pipe has to move as it heats up and so it does. I modified the brackets so that the pipe can move and it looks like it moves about 1/8". The bracket is 48" back from the bend.
