legally if you change the chassis (Frame) in any way it needs MSVA. If not it don't.

As for DVLA they are so inconsistant its any ones guess.

Think the pics are just another way of recording what was MSVA tested.
When I had mine done VOSA took pics and so did the local DVLA office.
I have no idea if they were ever compared, but I doubt it.
As said before, as long as the frame is unaltered you should be ok, but it should really be rebuilt to MSVA standards and a new MOT naturally.
