Is it not possible to import a rough but legal 110 then restore it using a new galv chassis and then buy a new LHD 300 TDI 110 for 19,000 pounds and break it up for parts as a donor vehicle leaving the chassis in the UK then there would be no VIN tampering. As the body and other parts would be new I assume customs would have no issue with them. There was a previous post regarding used bodies being sent back.

Ken what you have just described is the process we use, we remove the donor vehicles chassis and replace is with a genuine new galvchassis from the 25 yr old donor, there is no vin tampering.
