I am a MV inspector, I have the regulations... As long as its safe that's all that matters... If you daily drive your rig then it should meet the safety standards, if you drive your rig to and from the bush, then thats another ball game.

does a front line lock count as an e-brake? Or does it have to be cable/mechanical?

my guess would be cable or mechanical because the point of having an emergency brake is so you can stop if your regualr brakes fail. if a line goes and theres no fluid being pushed around, how will your line lock work?

Can't recall if there's anything about linelock in the regs, but if you have modified the hydraulic system, and it can easily be seen by an inspector, they may fail it. Just make sure it's out of sight.

It can't be used for an emergency brake.

You guys have it easy over here, back in Sydney where i came from we need an inspection every year, 35" tyres on 10" rims are the biggest allowed, and the car must be passed just to drive it on the road by an automotive engineer if its been modified in any way, even sports seats!, and cops can defect a car on the spot any time and not let you drive it away, happens a lot too! Ive only been here little while and cant wait to build a truck!

Rob at Car Craft Automotive in Winfield is the only place I take my vehicles to.
Hes done inspections on two of my cars so far and he is absolutely professional about his work.
He always checks the brakes, lights, signals, gives the interior and engine bay a quick once over, and goes through the undercairrage to make sure that the frame is all good.
would definetely reccomend him to anyone needing a VI:rockhorns:
