Question type: Car Customization

I want to stretch a 1991 Toyota MR2 and make it look like a Lykan replica. Do I need to
change the title to Reconstructed, Specially constructed, or modified vehicle or do I not
need to worry about that if I wanted to get it inspected? (I don't know much about legal
issues so I thought I'd ask before lifting a finger on this project).

This can be done,but if you are in a state which require,s inspection of the car,you may want to let a pro do the work,unless you think your work can pass and inspection.

Yes, for your protection you do need to change it.

Again why stretch & modifiying a Toyota MR2 ? It would be easier to start with a custom tubular frame with your desired wheelbase than to hack apart your Toyota that will end up as a pile of trash or scrap when you're done. Frame stress weak points are created when cutting them up & trying to re-weld & piece everything back togeather.
