Wow, this all looks painfully complicated and expensive... but it's your time and money! I have immense respect for you for going through with all this.

Here in Canada, we'll be able to import the 2002 models starting in 2017. We're lucky enough to have only a 15-year import/registration law (vehicle must be 15 years of age or older to be imported and registered for the street). RHD is allowed too, so UK cars would be fine. This is why we have R32 and R33 Skylines on the road here... the R34s will be eligible in 2014 too, now that I think about it!

I believe it's 20 years in America. So you'll have one in North America way before anyone else! Keep it up...

You're work is coming along fast, before long you'll be finished and the time will seem like nothing. Mine took 10 months from the week-end I stripped the shell to the day I enjoyed my first mile in her. Oh and the money still hasn't stopped...just slowed down a little

Again LOOKING FANTASTIC

anything in ford graphite is painted while the parts in black are powdercoated. Thanks for the comments everyone, I am as eager to work on this right now as everyone is for updates! We are in the middle of an expansion at work so it has been taking up all of my freetime, I will try to post some new progress this weekend.
