    Hi I am restoring my R32 GTR and there are a fair few bits I need, i have seen Half cuts advertised in america and australia that have the complete front end with engine and box still in and running. Does anyone know who I can get to import one of these and how much it will cost to buy/ship here? I have emailed some of the companies I have found but I have had no reply, I haven't had a reply on the GTR owners either, it seems most of these sites are dead or no one knows anything. I need the engine/box and all the front panels so this seems the most obvious way to get it. Also does anyone know of a good company to clean up the shell by either shotblasting or dipping it and coating it, close to southampton. It has no rust in it at all but its been sat 8 years now and I want to fully restore the car.

    Could try contacting Jesse Streeter a dude with company in Japan that specialise in locating stuff in Japan and shipping it worldwide. He might be able to help point you in the right direction.
