    Hi
    Yet another SVA query, has anyone had a Belinetta pass the SVA with Standard Bonnet and Panel louvres? if so what mods did you have to make?

    Malcolm,
    My Cabrio passed SVA in April and the bonnet louvers were not a problem. I can?t recall the exact wording but grills and louvers, which don?t protrude much, only need their edges blunted.

    Malcolm,
    I got my Berlinetta through the SVA test a year ago. It had standard Panel louvres fitted. I think it comes under the bit that says you are allowed sheet metal as long as it is folded back (ie a smooth edge) in the direction of travel. Although its been a year since I last looked at the regs so could be wrong on this last comment!
    If you need any more help on getting your Berlinetta through SVA let me know: richard_h_daniel(at)hotmail.com
    Regards,
    Richard
