Just an update on headlight leveling as well as overall modification to meet EU spec.
I managed to get headlight leveling switch from eBuy, although it is different Mitsu model and different year. It won't illuminate when the dash lights come on. The resistance values start with ~780 Ohm to ~2100 Ohm, depending on the position of the switch knob and whether the resistance is measured vs. +12V or ground wire. So, I ended up passing only 1 wire through the firewall using the opening on the floor below the air handling unit. When the vehicle arrives to EU, I will purchase used EU headlights and replace the stock US headlights while using an adapter to anchor it properly to the frame. The amber turn lights will not be rewired, though. Honestly, I hate this modification but this is the only legal way how to comply with EU and register the car in the EU. The US headlights cannot be easily modified and I could just end up destroying them.
Technically, if authorized inspection station measures (for a fee) the beam of the headlight in fully loaded vehicle and it still meets the specs, exception can be granted. The problem is, the nearest authorized facility is 250 miles away from my new location in the Czech republic. It would take lots of resources to have it done and the result can be negative, of course.
The good thing is, I can continue driving with NJ plates right off the boat for a few months as long as the vehicle is properly insured. This gives me a cushion to figure all modifications and paperwork.
The other project is installation of rear fog light, which is mandatory in EU:
BTW, the rear side markers are not allowed in EU. I will see whether the inspection technician finds out. If so, I will take the light bulbs out and paint the markers over.
Today was the big day, I have dropped our precious iMiEV to the shipping company. You may notice the vehicle is loaded with boxes. Let me tell you, we have been able to put in the car LOTS of other things.
