Extra Cab restoration from EU

2008, 2.5l Extra Cab - Rebuild

It's finally happened... The guy at the yearly inspection said: "you shall not pass"! :lol:
Well he's a good guy and the problem is only the front right upper ball joint, but I've been putting it off for a year so it's time to start.

The background:
I bought my Hilux in 08 from a Toyota dealership in Ljubljana (SLO), so I'm the 1st owner.
Some "cheap" mods were done, that I'm not so proud of, but in my defence, the car cost a lot and being a student didn't help.
Over the years we had some great adventures, but due to daily driving to work and back didn't manage to rack up a lot of kilometres. So after 11 years, we are at 140.000 km and it's time to put in some work to make it till 300.000 km

Sandblasting of chassis, repair and repaint
Suspension lift (3") and body lift (30-50mm)
Tyres and if need be rims (33")
Front and rear bumper (If budget allows)
Body dent & scratch repair and respray (Raptor bed liner)

To be able to register the car after the upgrades I will have to provide the right paperwork.

If anyone did any of the mentioned upgrades and knows how to do this legally in the EU, I would greatly appreciate some help.
