I suppose it's because if it were any easier, there would be more pieces of crap on the road posing a hazard to us folks who want some semblance of safety. I wouldn't want some POS to crash or cause an accident, only to have some piece of it come flying into my Z because it didn't have decent welds or bolts holding panels together.
Also, I assume that if you ever decide to sell it, give it away, or it's stolen, there are some issues to deal with on liability.
I think the easiest way to get around this is to register the vehicle in another country and then import it as a personal import, which makes it somewhat easier.
