I am just glad that there are now available used units from Japan, or better known as JDM cars. Even if these are used units and converted to LHD, I would rather go this route than buy a brand new local unit that cost 3 - 4x. Those conversions are already well made, very safe. I would think twice about cut ups though, especially on bathtub style or chassis free body.
Also surplus parts are aplenty in banawe, a fraction of what local car companies charge.
