Re: Japanese parts book,

That would be logical. We got the Canadian cars here in NZ by virtue of being a Commonwealth country where Japan doesn't have that tie.

Re: Bolt remover socket

I've got one of these sets of sockets to deal with rounded off bolts. You should be able to get these at any hardware store. Looks expensive but that because this is in NZ bucks.
