This is my first car it is a JDM clone, the car was originally a LHD USDM 1990 all-trac now we are converting to make it a RHD JDM 1990 all-trac. Already built once (not converted though just built to run) and then crashed and now we are in the process of re-building again and figured to go all out and make it RHD.

Engine re-built:
**Steel head-gaskets
**ARP head studs
**Mild port and polish
**10K on the motor
**Ceremic six puk clutch
**Custom motor mounts
**Upgraded brakes all around
**90 Supra rims with 1 inch wheel spacers
**Upgraded factory 10-speaker system

We DID NOT CUT the front end off to make it right-hand (because it was originally left hand drive), we did a sub panel swap off of a donor JDM clip. We also used a crashed white GT-S for parts we were missing.

Still have a lot of work to do, in particular I am need of carpeting after a bad leak flooded my interior.

The last picture is a current picture. Some may know there was an aftermarket bumper we had on it for awhile but it has been replaced.

Wow, no small feat!

Did you cut and weld in a new firewall? How much time / effort do you have in the project so far?

Thanks, all the work was done by my Dad, we have been working on my car for almost four years now on and off, the first two years we worked on the weekends but now with me often driving up to Bellingham with my car we work every now and then. And I do believe that the new firewall was cut and welded in. We still have a lot of work to do: finishing the air to liquid intercooler for the front, finding carpet, new seats, touch up paint and lots of other stuff. But it runs well now.

No, we did not chop the front end off and weld on a front from a JDM clip, we did a sub panel swap.
