Thanks guys. Yup, no windshield needed in BC. There's nothing in the motor vehicle act or regulations that says you need a windshield, only that if you have one it has to be in good shape and safety glass. Shop around for a shop that local hotrod guys go to, and they will hopefully be more accommodating than most others.

Kristian is correct. The rules state, that if you have a windshield, you will need a defroster and wipers. But you can avoid that by not having a windshield.
Make sure that you pick an inspection facility that you can work with. Once you have sent in the paperwork, and the inspection is not going your way, you cannot change inspectors.
Your inspector may (and probably will) ask for a structural inspection. This can be done by an approved auto body shop, but again, get your ducks in a row early on.

thanks i have to talk to shop i have picked. i think he well let it pass if no law is broken. he has all ready told me to look for a way to do what i want and show him its ok for him to pass it that way. nothing else about my build plan was a problem for him. he likes to play with the wording of the law just like me. also told me if i bring him bare frame when done welding but before paint so my welds can be seen i mite not need structural inspection.

I know some inspectors want a structural inspection and some don't. My first pick of inspectors wanted one so I started through that step and was committed to going that route. After the guy at the shop OK'd the structural. He told me he had never done this before. I knew far more he did but he had the power.
