I'm in the process of making a custom decklid vent, but I need to get my car inspected today.

At this point, I have the mold off, but my decklid has the hole cut already.

Anyone have any facts on whether or not it is legal to drive it like that?

Thanks
Ryan

I doubt it is illegal. If it is, then bolt on a piece of sheet metal for the inspection. Your state laws will determine if it is illegal.

Ah no. I've got the inspection covered.

I was just wondering about the legality of driving it around like that.

I've still got plenty of fiberglass materials lying around to do a quick patch-up if I had to but I'd rather not.

Hmm, Do you have people running around in dune buggies or other similar vehicles. I don't think it is illegal here in MI, or at least they don't pull you over for it. I wouldn't worry, just tell them you are taking it to the shop to have it fixed

Not too many dune buggies down here. I really don't think it would be much of a problem. You should see some of the vehicles running around down here

You could always duct tape it over. Hole filled.

As long as the fenders, lights, license plate(s), mirrors, and crash protection are still in place and functional, you should be good to go. If a cop bugs you about a hole in your decklid, then he / she is just being a prick.
