Default Type R full conversion with rhd build

Taking delivery of my 1999 RS tomorrow! I will be immediately rolling it in the shop and start stripping it for the conversion! I have a few more weeks before my donor type r come in to port. We brought in 90% of the type r complete doors complete interior and an uncut wiring harness rear glass and wiper the whole 9. here are a few pics of my donor i felt wrong having it cut but since we cant import this is the next best thing! enjoy.

Something came up that may cause this Project to be for sale PM for information

Started tearing down the RS today and first issue arose the fender bolt and the bottom by the door under the skirt looks like it decided to weld it self there... cant get the socket on it and getting anything started it just rounded the bolt. FML I hit it with the PB blaster and will let it soak.
Here is how it looks so far


and the bolt any one want to chime in on how to do this without destroying the mount im all ears or eyes in this case



summary:
headlights, grill, corner lights, bumper and support ,splash shields all removed.

broke one 10 mm bolt on fender yeah that sucked

chasis has 213K on it i guess i should have expected that. tomorrows a new day

cant be be imported i had to have the car bought in Japan and cut and shipped to port in the USA. the difference is when you get the whole car its easier to swap the parts over and you have everything you need. I am looking forward to right hand drive as well. i will do my best to document the process to help anyone that wants to go this route.

Back when "R" models were done right

Mind if I ask who your supplier is? Looks like a nice quality car.

Edit: V6 "R"?

And the seats having the red bar all the way across the top

I just though that the V6 was a coil on plug engine, though the last one that I personally had hands on was a heavily tinkered with former Prodrive recce car

It feels wrong to have had the car chopped its a beautiful example of the v6 type r. It's my great hope that I will be able to recreate it as close to original as possible.

update: 10/07/12

very productive weekend with the help of a good friend we stripped the dash to the fire wall, cleared the AC system and loosed all the bolts mating the tranny to the block. motor isn't completely out but should be free once motor mounts are loosened. updated my log sheet with tools used and tracked nuances for future builders references.

a few pics of the progress






Brake master cylinder is free but the rear line fittings in the ABS pump are rusty and soft trying my best not to destroy them but may have to. any one know how much a set of brake lines go for?

Type R should not have ABS anyway, so new lines will be needed. Time to buy a flaring tool and some piping. Should be able to do the entire system for $200 including the tool.

Thank you! I did not know that. I had tried to do sufficient research about special parts of the model and i am always amazed at the level of knowledge that members here have.

thank you again

There is always a possibility that I am wrong, but I don't see a pump in the engine bay pics.
