    In Minnesota, I do not beleive a title goes from clean to "green" ever. It could go from salvage to re-constructed. Take four photos, bill of sale for parts, apply for a reconstructed title. The new title does not denote salvage. I did this also with a motorcycle. State records would show it as a reconstructed title altho title did not.
    I had a Porsche 944 with rear end damage. Car came to me from a body shop which applied for an in-state title. Title was clean howevcer CarFax showed it as salvage and referenced an accident.
    In some cases I've seen, a car involved in an accident on "private' property will not show in CarFax. Car towed from an private parking lot to a shop , repaired. No title name change. No CarFax.
    Vehicle involved in a theft recovery with zero damage and paid off by insurance company could receive a salvage title. Once the insurance company takes ownership it could/might become salvage and be reflected in CarFax as salvage.

That way they can see where you got all the parts from legally. You might still have to go to Trenton to do paperwork and get the appointment at the nearest specialty inspection station. You bring pics and all documentation to your appointment with the car, and hand it over then sit in the waiting room for up to an hour. DO NOT bother the inspectors, let them take their time. My 99 Honda CBR600F4 took only 20 min, but a car that was there got failed because the owner kept walking into the garage to check on the progress. Now keep in mind it will be a clean title but will also state it has a salvage history.

    I don't think I've heard of someone doing this kind of extensive work DIY style like this.

    Are you at least getting quite a bit of savings here?

    V1's are not particularly rare or expensive, and this is a LOT of work.. just asking.

    My dad has been doing body work and collision repair for 30 years our garage has everything from his old shop its a 4 car bay and has everything we would need and I am only at a little over 10 grand total.

    ----------

    So I think I'm saving atleast a little. But I don't know I enjoy projects like this I built a mk3 supra from the ground up 2 years ago so this is a fun little project as well.

    Why would I hack a car in half just to save a few grand?

    No bracing required before hacking? Or is that only necessary with surgery on older body-on-frames?

    On another note, if I was that deep into hacking a car, I'd probably think about integrating extra rigidity into the chassis - i.e., a full cage that doesn't impinge on the interior of the vehicle. A chassis can never be too stiff.

    Hopefully this guy is good and well after he's done with his "ass surgery"

    That looks scary
