there is some kind of frontal impact law that they bought in on imports. i think it has to be post 1996, or 25 years old plus.

also, if you can prove you have owned the car for a year in oz, you dont have to pay import duties.

couple of grand drive on drive off from brisbane to auckland.

then a customs inspection, can be cheap but depends on how much they feel like ripping you. just make sure its as clean as possible, dirt under the guards/ bugs etc.

then a roadworthy inspection around 350-400 nzd plus you have to pay the first years rego then of about 220nzd, and your on the road.

Being modified you will most likely have to get a low volume cert which is around 550 i think. yours is a common conversion here so should go straight through.
