Floor mats I won't go after as they are grey and also hard to find. While I wouldn't mind some st170 headlights with adjustment motors I would like to stick with HID. I wonder if you can buy the adjustment motors seperate?

Quicker steering Ratio when compared to the SVT Rack but it has the turn radius of the Standard rack! (suppose to cope better with the wider width)

I was originally going to tamper with a RHD RS rack which I have because the LHD versions are so hard to find. I think I will be selling it back to the UK now unless someone else wants a go at it.
Right hand drive would have been so badass. But a lot of work for sure.

In my opinion RHD is a pointless conversion, but thats just me. If it came that way fine.

It sounds like paint is going to be delayed for another two weeks but he is mounting everything right now so maybe it will be sooner.

I do have some suspension components on the way soon, last week they were just waiting for powdercoating.

I will probably work on the steering racks this weekend and my seat mounts. I also need to figure out a parts list for ford as nearly everything mounted to the subframes is being replaced.

The suspense on this build is killing me! It's nice to see not only one, but two guys doing the build and actually sticking to it. Great job
