I went ahead and got it reinspected today. The last inspection certificate had expired before I was home, so I wasn’t able to get my tags updated. It passed again, and so I drove it over to the DMV to renew my plates and drove back home.
So it’s finally legal again, and now I can work on remaining things with proper test drives, rather than just messing around with it in the driveway.
I also put my glovebox back in. The interior now looks pretty much like a normal car. :)
