To do it the way i would want to do it its more work than its worth. If the wiper motor works on the original side whats the point in moving it. If it was me I would have been happy with lhd i dont not understand the whole rhd thing. But to each there own.

But if you don't do it, you're going to run into the issue of the wiper not clearing enough of the windshield on the right side of the car (about 3/4's of it), which could cause a visibility issue (and it might not pass inspection because of that). That's my whole point about doing it. Even if it's not exactly how you want to do it, it would at least be done almost properly.

The funny thing is, in the US and in Europe everyone wants to have JDM style in there car, but here, 90% of cars onroad are Japanese used imports, so our cars started off JDM and alot of us want the European styling instead lol.... And ofcourse, the classic muscle cars here, having the steering wheel on the Left is a cool thing here lol

Its the sign from a local dealer. They did a remodel and I happen to know some people who know people who work there. Of course it lights up lol



No jeeps at my house my friend, that there is my daughter FJ lol. On another note the car is pretty much done. I took it down the road this past weekend. Been too busy to update but here it is.







And last but not least the video of me pulling the car out for the first time

Look amazing! smile.gif

Is your rear end too far forward?
I only ask because I know Malek's is a true GT4 and it doesn't seem like the wheels are as off center.

Funny thing, Maleks AWD conversion had that exact same caster issue

Yupp, i saw the same issue on a car that was converted. Wheel is not centered in the wheel well. I thought because i ised the floor that it would remedy that problem. Makes me think the shock tower is a little farther back in the st205. I plan on discussing this with Nick and see what he wants to do about it. I may be able to solve the issue by extending the north south arms that center the wheel.
