DOT approval

One of the steps to getting the car over the border is to apply to the Department of Transportation for approval to import the kit. There are rules about not bringing full kit cars over the border, so it is a bit of a process.

With help from Al at Western Canada Cobra’s, we successfully applied and received the Approval to Import letter.  Since I now have this letter, the car is basically pre-approved to cross the border so there should be no issues with customs. A part of the process is to identify all the parts  and provided the NAFTA numbers with them.  This makes it all duty free.

The entire process for the letter took just over four months.
