Default US Cobra build

Next year I move to Florida for 2-3 years through work. As such, I am very seriously considering building a Cobra while there. At this stage it would likely be a factory five as I have checked these kits out when looking a couple years ago and they looked pretty good. The intention would be to build it as RHD over there, which is where FF would be handy as they have info on this already.

Would I have much trouble getting it engineered in Aus on my return? There are multiple posts regarding engineering certificates required for registration interstate, but I'm concerned that as there would be no during build inspections done whilst in Aus there may be issues. On completion of job, I move to Canberra so I would ensure that build would be to Canberra engineering spec ie side indicators, high brake light....

There are significant benefits building over there, greater access to parts, no Aus tax and as I am working for an Aus company, as long as I have it registered for a year I wouldn't have to pay import tax on return.

Any advice you guys/gals could provide would be awesome.
