Default UH OH! Did I make a RHD mistake?!?

I just bought some RHD parts so that I could do a conversion on my 99RS. Trouble is I assumed that the parts I bought would fit my car. (I did a 240sx RHD conversion and they werent from the same year) I bought the conversion stuff from a JDM 1996 WRX. Does anyone think I will have trouble with fitment i.e. are the interiors different widths or anything like that. Or trouble with the steering rack fitment and such.

also I bought the stuff from supasweetr34skyline who gave me a really good deal and was very very very fast with the shipping!

Thanks all

No divit.





I sure as hell envy the OP. I'm looking to do the same, but I'd rather get a front clip and swap it while I'm at it.

I spent 5 mins looking for a divit difference. What do you mean?

My car two cars ago was RHD. It was a lot of fun to go through McDonalds drive thru's. I sold the car and now Im gettting envious of myself?...So Im doing it again. It's legal here so no big deal with the cops altough it was pretty funny when I got pulled over (for speeding)
Cop:walks up to left side "Son do you know how fast you were going?"
Passenger: "uh no, I wasnt really driving"
Cop: "what?"
Passenger: "I dont have a steering wheel, I wasnt driving"
Cop: looks in car "Well damn, I bet you think this is pretty f***ing funny"
Passenger: shakes head no furiously...

The cop ending up being a pretty laid back guy but he still gave me a ticket (45 in a 35, I forgot about this speed trap)

As for an engine swap, yeah Im actually working something out right now on a ej22t. I plan on rebuilding that cause it has a few miles on it. Then bigger turbo and swapping heads. Car is going to be down for a while but eh, thats how cars go.

hey the stuff you bought from supasweetskyline used to be all my stuff actually and i got it off my 95 wrx front clip. if you are going from new to old the gauge cluster will be diffrent and needed to be wired and the a/c controls and such other little dash things. ECS did my swap for me and i was going with the RHD and keeping all of that stuff but i decided not to b/c i wanted the newer dash look. If you are missing any little dash parts for that dash or interior let me know b/c i still have some little pieces i forgot to include with all that RHD stuff i gave him.
