Well I spoke to the inspector today and his answer seems to mirror some of the others. Tallahassee said that DFKitcar needs to register with the NHTSA in order for him to even be able to inspect it. I tried pressing him and he went straight to the "don't shoot the messenger" defense. I probably should have asked for a contact up the chain at Tallahassee, but since others have gone down this road to no avail, I'm taking my "No" from Florida and looking forward to a "Yes" from Montana. I'll be working on some paperwork this weekend! Hoping that I can get it taken care of in time to potentially join the Mountain View event next month!
