Importing Skyline GTT~Any Mechanic for Safety Compliance?

Hi,

I'm importing a Nissan Skyline GTT to Vancouver. Can anyone recommend a reliable and reasonable mechanic to do the safety compliance so I can register with ICBC and buy insurance?

Thanks

in his first post it says GT-T... but it sure dosen't look like one though. i do not see the center-dash mount computer screen that GT-Rs have, but the entire front clip is from a Z-tune GT-R

looks like like a GTT with a Widebody to me..

as you can see the rear fenders dont match up with the door lines exactly.

and you cant see the hump in the dash for the GTR Display.
