welcome to the board!
as for the importers, i cant help you, but if and when you do end up getting a front clip imported, realize that it is not a bolt-on affair. there is a member on the board that did a rhd conversion with a JDM dash, etc. and he had to cut almost the entire firewall out of both cars (jdm and usdm) and weld the rhd firewall into the usdm car. also, the pedals, steering box, etc are all different, so you would need a manual-transmission'ed front clip (if you have a manual car) rather than just the dash. with the front clip, though, you get lots more JDM parts depending on how damaged it is, including possibly a front bumper, side markers, intersection lights, one-piece headlights, etc.

actually at my work i drive a forklift, so the configurations are almost the same. I can adjust fairly quickly to RHD

Its not hard, just time consuming.
I see it alot in NJ, people from Canada move down and bring their cars.
I seen my shares of Canadian EX's and EX-R's at work with Jersey plates.
He's IN Canada.


The hard part isn't getting the car... It's paying the cost of getting it! You'll spend a bit for a car in decent shape ($1000 probably) Then it'll cost another $3000 to ship it. Then whatever customs and importation costs you have to pay... Are you willing to spend $7000 on a CB?

They could be brought into the US as well. As long as there's a US equivalent, it's MUCH easier to import a car. Still, the JDM cars didn't have anything all THAT much better (RHD is cool... the rest we can get and put on our own cars easily)

I know a guy that comes into where I work a lot. He had a Pulsar Gti-R. That thing is awesome. Too bad he just sold it a few months back. Now he has a sweet bug eye impreza wagon.

best way for US peeps to import is through Canada...atleast for CB7 that is. Once it is registered and saftied in Canada, you can easily transfer over the registration to US.

www.japanoid.com also takes custom requests
