Thanks Mash... still here mate. Car has been off the road since Feb.

Right Hand Drive ST is a bit more complicated then the LHD in the USA. There are no RHD kits available and the steering column is in the way. So on top of relocating the water expansion tank etc, everything has to be custom made for the RHD, exhaust manifold, down pipes, hell even the charge pipe and hot side intercooler pipe needs to be custom fabbed.

Everything is tight with factions of an inch making a big difference, with things like bonnet clearance and installing an air filter

Thankfully I have a very talented mate who is doing most of the work

ST in Australia are pretty rare (now i know why) so there's a lot of experimentation and taking blind turns. Waiting for parts chews up a hell of a lot of time too

Getting close now to having it back on the road.. .. will be worth the wait
