    Hello!

    New member but been using the site for couple of year.

    I live in California and have no idea how to legalize a 100% jdm car. Can somebody tell me what i need to do? What should be done? Complete detail would be very helpful. Thanks in advance.

    Search for government sites.

    Only certain cars are allowed in, they have to be DOT approved and on the list.

    good luck. it's a pain in the ass. i don't think anybody here knows 100% what needs to be done. it has to do with safety, glass, brake lines, i'm not sure what all needs to be done. you would be better of doing a conversion.

    unless you're importing a skyline, there is next to no point in importing a jdm car.
    just get the jdm swap, and the jdm front bumper, and the jdm seats.... and you have yourself a jdm car for 1/10th the cost.... and you can still go to drive throughs and atm's.
