I am looking for someone in Sharjah/Dubai who can provide me with reliable information regarding JDM half cuts, full engine swaps, front end conversions, seats, and other sundry items availability and pricing as a possible business venture for other markets in North America and Europe. Honesty and complete disclosure is paramount. I will provide my shopping list, and God willing, the answers I get back would prove fertile enough to go further. The arrangement would have to be where both parties are making decent margin on volume. I live and work full time in Bahrain. I would come there myself, but as soon as those shop guys see me (Japanese/Scottish-American guy), the price jumps, and that's what I want to avoid. I'd rather show up at the deal closure with the cash in hand with my partner and smack it down hard that future deals will come on a regular basis as long as there are no tricks or sleight of hand.
If this fits you, please PM me. If you have recommendations on how I can get this info myself, instead, that is appreciated, too. I've done stuff myself out of Japan years ago until that market basically got taken over (funny, everything wound up in Sharjah and Malaysia), and I have bought a few full swaps out of Sharjah for my own use here in Bahrain for my Nissans.
Thanks for your time.
