Right Side Conversion

I was looking at pics of some euro foci, and saw alot of right side drive cars. so has anyone done a right side drive conversion? Is it even possible? Are there kits for it? What years/models would it be limited to? What Parts would be needed and how hard/long would it be?

I don't think anyone's done one.
Yes, anything's possible w/ the right wallet.
No kits.
No limits.
Parts would be ridiculous, that's why no one does it. You would need either all euro dash parts or custom, euro rack and pinion, and maybe even the euro steering column. Then you'd have to figure out how to make the brake booster move and fit to the other side along with the throttle cable.

Now your going to get a bunch of people that are going to say is it really worth it, because your going to have to go through McDonald's backwards and it would be hard to pass people, so I'll just hit you w/ that now.
It comes down to, if you've got a bunch of money sitting around, have a ball.

Kinda pointless. Most guys that do that drive JDM clones, no real advantage to it. Though the originality is nice.

I'm not bashing the idea, the cons outweigh the pros.

It was jst a passing thought, I am helping my buddy do one on his 240sx. The whole front clip fr the swap only cost 800 bones, and he is doing all the work himself.

Only Right hand drive Foci on the road are in the UK, Japan, and Australia. The other 90% of the world has left hand drive Foci like us.

The Focus has German roots, not Japanese, stick with the rest of the Europe and keep it on the left hand side
