It is fairly easy but the more reciepts you can bring the better. They can get nasty if they think any part is stolen.

It may get considered a "Special Construction Vehicle" if you don't use the VIN from an existing VW. That could cause a whole lot of grief including meeting smog requirements for a brand new car. (ie if it is registered as a special construction in 2011, it would have to meet 2011 smog requirements and be inspected every 2 years.

Using the VIN from an existing VW requires starting with a registered Bug. Make sure the registered Bug is registered in your name as a stock or relatively stock Bug. Then cut out 18" of tunnel including the factory original VIN and weld it into the tube frame. Some years also had a VIN tag riveted to the dash inside the left lower corner of the windshield. That should match the chassis VIN. That was done to build the black & white Baja which was featured in the March issue of HVWs. It is owned by the Chief of Police of the City of El Centro. If it works for him, it should work for the rest of us.

Well he's in Cali and it would be best if the Cali DMV see a complete car. They are likely to want to "inspect" the car.

So I'm not sure that Phoenix pan (torsion with VIN) would work for him, but maybe so?
