Is it true that when you import a car yourself you have to change the steering column?

from right to left?
some country's dont allow rhd cars and i guess you'll have to change it if you ever want to get your import legalized.

dave lives in the UK as far as i know so the rhd shouldnt be a problem.

True, though it depends on the country that you import too. Some of the UAE for example will not allow RHD cars to be registered. However, here in the UK we dont have these issues.

Here in America, if it's over 25 years old, you don't have to change anything.

They used to make you swap the steering column out for a US-spec collapsible column for safety reasons.

They've never forced you to convert it to LHD. :P

First thing you might have to do before buying wheels is deciding what flares you're getting for the rear, since the various brands do differ a bit :D

Hi Kev

I think as the wheels are the most difficult to source I'd like to see what I can get and then order some arches.

I dunno about the wheels being difficult to source...difficult to source cheap perhaps but Watanabe etc all do appropriate sizes off the shelf still.

Well here's a set for sale in Melbourne:
http://forum.jdmstyletuning.com/showthread.php?t=28401

Width and offset would be about perfect for the rear with the normal-size flares (same as on my car).

At the front...it'll be a little aggressive on a Hako, but would work with flares and a decent amount of negative camber.

Rears are about right, but the fronts are a bit too big. 8in wide with -4 offset is industry-std for flares at the front, so these would stick out too much.

Hakos look better with some wheel stagger anyway, the rears have to be bigger :D

Wow this hako is so clean. Its my dream to eventually import one of these, probably won't be able to afford it for about 10 years and in that time they will be even more expensive.

Its also really cool that there was only one owner, I would love to have bought an incredible car like this back when it was made and still have it after all these years.

Remember that when this car was new, most cars on the road in Japan were kei cars (which were 360cc back then) or 1L cars. You'd have been king of the road with a 2L six banger.
