Wow, those pics look incredible! I'm glad you found that it was a simple fix and nothing major. Oh, and thank you for serving our country!

Import is actually down to the year and month of manufacture, not the model year of the car. So 95's may have been manufactured in late 94, etc.

66gt40lm is correct in advising that date of manufacture/date of first registration is 25 years from the month. Japan Export certificates do not state the date of manufacture but instead the date of first registration. Here's an example: my Evo Wagon Export Certificate
So for example a vehicle manufactured in 1991, and a '91 model may not have a first registration date until 1992. This has caught some people with their vehicle stuck in customs, ineligible for import. This is because NHTSA states "If the date of manufacture is not identified on a label permanently affixed to the vehicle by its original manufacturer, to establish the age of the vehicle, you should have documentation available such as an invoice showing the date the vehicle was first sold or a registration document showing that the vehicle was registered at least 25 years ago." Most labels on vehicles from that age in Japan are labeled in the Japanese Heisei year system, so my old 1990 Skyline (manufactured late 1989) was labeled with a year H2 and the first registration date on the certificate was the only useable date for customs. It was first reg'd in October 1990 and when imported to the UK it received that registration.

TaraFirma: Car looks great! I'd be worried having that out in Korea, the drivers there scarred my beater up pretty good. Hope it goes smooth getting it imported.

I spent almost 6 hours on it with a clay bar and then polishing and waxing it.
Pictures were taken with a nikon D5100 in HDR mode then enhanced with PS.

Car is on the Viking Adventure vehicle shipping vessel currently in the Pacific just south of Japan. It should be here around the 20th of July.
