OK, my S-I-L submitted the application for title inspection to NYS yesterday, now I wait.
With NYS, you never know, they lost paperwork once, took 6 months to get an inspection.
For those of you that don't know, here in NYS, a totaled vehicle is issued an MV 907A certificate. that certificate proves ownership...to get a 907A vehicle back on the road it must be repaired and inspected, and retitled. Mostly, the inspectors are looking to see that the vehicle has been properly repaired and contains no stolen parts. On cars and trucks, they even remove trim and body panels to search for VIN tags. Once a vehicle passes this inspection, it is issued a salvage title. After that, it's the same as any vehicle, get it safety inspected, insured, and registered like anything else.
Of course, that title is forever branded as a salvage vehicle, which reduces its value on the open market, but has no affect on the way it drives, rides or pads my wallet!
And I wait also for the parts that I ordered from Kawasaki Parts House (Babbitts Online)on Friday.
Does anyone here have experience with them? What is their typical delivery...I chose standard ground shipping.
