Just curious, but why convert it to RHD?

Nice, you won't get any points for RHD to me.. but the conversion for the rear end is easily the best attempt I have seen yet.

I would still be very interested in how these conversions hold up.

Good luck, you should post the pictures here instead of just a link. Also, you should run a log of the structural being of the car, immediately after the conversion and then updates as time goes on.

Its one thing to do it, its another to be 5 years into it. Again though, best work I've seen yet. Congrates.

You should post a template for the rear bits you made. :D Did someone say RWD 6th gen. ;)

The RHD conversion is all for Uniqueness. The way I like to build cars is, The more I can make it more NOT like everybody elses the better!

Yep. Doesn't make sense from a DD standpoint, but it's pretty nifty on a mostly show car. :)

But if you think about it that way, its more like the rest of the 205s. it would be different than most 205s by being LHD. ;)

Anyhow, I it looks like you did not have to bother with a drive shaft tunnel. So just the rear pan and subframe were the largest issues for fitting the drivetraine?

First off I never said it was a daily driver, and second of all I live in the United States
how often do you see a RHD let alone ST205 RHD in the states?

Don't take it personal, not everything we do will fit everyones tastes. As long as you like it, thats what matters!

I don't see why it couldn't be done. I'm pretty shure that the wheel base is the same.

Hatches ftw! no offense to anyone :-P Although I guess it would be even more unique to see a conversion done on a coupe.
