Clarks Vehicle Conversions is a Type Approved “Stage 2 Builder”. As such, once we have completed a conversion we will affix a “Stage 2 Statutory Plate” as required by law.
The plate contains information outlining how the vehicle has been modified beyond the “Stage 1 Build” carried out by the original base vehicle manufacturer aka original equipment manufacturer (OEM).
In a Clarks conversion, the “Stage 2 Statutory Plate” takes the form of a rectangular tamper evident/proof self-adhesive label (sticker) placed next to the “Stage 1 Plate” installed by the OEM.
A Tamper proof, or Tamper evident, sticker is a self adhesive label that provides evidence of any attempt to tamper with, or remove, said sticker. This is evident on both the label and the vehicle they are applied to.
If any attempt is made to remove/peel the sticker, the base material will “break away”, revealing a repeat pattern of the word “VOID” on the sticker (essentially destroying it) whilst simultaneously leaving the same “VOID” pattern, in relief, on the vehicle where the sticker was originally situated. This results in the sticker having minimal adhesive and as such cannot be applied directly to another vehicle.
If you have received a new conversion directly from Clarks, a “Stage 2 Statutory Plate” is installed as standard. The plate is applied and checked by our diligent Quality Control operatives when each vehicle undergoes our 191 point quality control check before leaving our Conversion Centre. If for some reason your new conversion doesn't have a “Stage 2 Statutory Plate” contact your converter immediately as someone may have removed it, or the vehicle may have not been registered correctly.
