Considering making a Zetec RWD adapter

Thinking about making a RWD adapter to use a ford transmission with the 2.0/2.3 Lima bellhousing bolt pattern.

Seeing if there is any interest in this or if I'm going to make just 1.

It will be something similar to this set up:


That adapter is made for a nissan but mine will be using the same idea.

It will be all bolt on.

No interest in a RWD Zetec? I'm shocked. It was like a big deal a year ago.

Any other transmission that people would like to see mated to the Zetec?

I've looked all over and haven't seen them. I know there is a custom bellhousing to mount to a t5.

there is so much more that goes into making the car rwd than just that plate and bolting it to another trans that there wont be a lot of interest but they are cool
