Default Purchased a 96 Integra type R

hey guys, I recently bought a JDM ITR and it won't be shipping out until the end of February and will be here in mid March, I'm really excited buying this car, being my first Japanese purchase. I decided to do all the importing paperwork myself, with help from this forum of course. I've read over the different guides a couple times and hopefully everything goes well.
what I'm wondering is if there's any recommended shops that won't pay too much attention to my non dot approved headlights? I plan on doing the daytime running lights and making sure the car is up to spec, but I just wanna know if there are some shops out there that would let me get away with not doing a whole USDM front end swap just to pass inspection.

Any input would be appreciated.

Do you live in BC? AB no lights required.
No other easy way to do LHD lights on the JDM integra? whole front end? ewwwww.
Also congrats! should be a super fun car! Paperwork is really not that hard, but can seem crazy the first time for sure. Dah_Hunter is yo man for all Q's!
I've also done it a number of times so ask away if it comes to that!

Sweet! First JDM is always a great feeling. You gotta get a couple more posts and then throw some picture of it up.

Sounds like he needs to make a thread in here, and tell his his plans for it, etc...

Sorry, Edited due to content harmful to the JDM scene in Canada. Please make a new thread about headlight options for your car.
