    Thank you very much for your feedback from this old post. My car is finished, My paperwork was approved by the state today, and I get it inspected 3/21.

    Ok, I get about 2-5 calls or emails a week on how to get a FFR kit titled in FLORIDA. I have built as of today 13 FFR kits and had 10 titled in FL. I will outline the process I have used each time.
    1. Contact your local Regional DIVISION of MOTORIST SERVICES. Mine is region 2 in OCALA, FL. Look online for yours.
    2. Print out these 3-sets of paperwork from FL.
    https://www.flhsmv.gov/dmv/forms/BRE/84490.pdf
    https://www.flhsmv.gov/dmv/forms/BRE/84491.pdf
    https://www.flhsmv.gov/dmv/forms/btr/82040.pdf
    Fill out all info and check KIT CAR . The year will be 1965 for MK4 and Type65 coupe, 1933 for the 33 and 1935 for the 35 hot rod truck. All others will be year you bought kit from FFR on your MSO (Manufacturers Certificate of Origin)
    3. You must have a certified weight slip of finished car
    4. You must have receipts for kit from FFR, engine and transmission purchase. If using donor car you must have title of donor. Document engine and transmission #'s.
    5. 3/4 front and 3/4 rear photo of finished car
    6. copy of drivers license
    7. MSO from FFR
    8. mail all the originals of these to the regional of your area with $40.00. **(Make copies of everything you mail in TO KEEP FOR YOURSELF)
    9. They will either contact you for more info or give you a inspection date to bring car to get title.
    10. Bring check book you will be paying taxes on anything you have not paid tax on during the build.
    11. Bring proof of Insurance if you want tag issued that day.
    12. Always treat DMS people with respect and kindness. It goes a long way vs trying to argue with them.

    I am positive there are other folks that have done this differently in FL. I can only tell you how I have done it successfully for 10 kits. Best of luck on your FFR dream car or truck. TW

    I might add, that if you use a donor vehicle that was junked, make sure it was really junked by the yard it went to. Check the state data base for titles etc. and check to see if it was junked in the system. If it does not show as junked in the national data base, your paperwork will not be approved.

    Yes , you have to rivet it, No screws, to some part that is not easy to remove. Firewall, foot box, etc.

    Yes, They have gone back and forth on this. Usually they issue your frame # from FFR as your vin#. But I have had them issue a FL vin# starting with FL######### 2 times.

    Where did you guys put your VIN plaques... I was thinking about putting it on the piece of fender closeout that comes up to the hood near the radiator.

    I have mine pop riveted on the left side inner fender well. I have the ones from Formacars. I will let you know what they say when mine is inspected on the 21st.
