please keep it RDH. its such a rare, rare thing. if you do plan to LHD it please pm me as i would possible like to find a clean RHD shell and buy it and trade you shells or just interior parts.

Presterone - Got any pictures of what you have? Shoot me a PM if do!

Transparentdsm - Do you have a shell as clean as this one? If I do swap it back to LHD - all the RHD parts will be up here for sale for sure. Like I said earlier though, I'm still not really sure what I will do with the car at the moment. If the RHD swap was more complete I would like it more, but I hate the idea of paying trillions of dollars to ship little nicknacks all around the world to complete this swap. When complete it would not be worth the money that I had into it.

well if i really wanted to 138's shell is super clean, no rust. i dont really want to pull that car apart again. my whole thing is that the brake booster, master cylinder, steering column, steering rack and some other things are already done and id just hate to see all that hard work go to waste. even if its not me, before you go actually converting it back to LHD give some people the chance to trade. there is a lot of hard work into what has already been done. post up some interior pictures. depending on how complete the car is maybe i will rip 138 apart.

I will take some pictures and post them up for you soon. The whole dash area is apart, and the dash is just a shell of a RHD dash (in poor shape btw). It appears to still have all the LHD wiring in it, but flipped around, so my guess is that the wiring would need some help as well. I'm not too sure though yet.

How would you guys feel it I made it rear wheel drive? Basically the same engine/trans setup as my truck. Would that be awesome or a tragedy in your mind?

right hand drive, rear wheel drive, drift car?? i like the idea. yeah i understand if the dash is really that bad. i would personally try to make it work because of how rare the car is to begin and this is even more so.

Well, it wouldn't be a drift car really. It would just be a car that's RWD instead of AWD I have a bunch of spare rwd 4G63 stuff, so that's the only reason why I would even consider it. The crappy part would be making a front subframe with the steering rack more toward the front so the transmission has room to live. But then I could sell the RHD subframe to offset some cost... I dunno. I'm basically just trying to build a usable car as cheaply as I possibly can. Hmmm. Tough decisions!

Nice truck man, i love 4G swapped lil trucks. i also agree on keeping the car RHD and finishing it or atleast trading or selling it to someone that wants to finish it. I would love to have a RHD VR4.

Don't get me wrong, I would love to finish the rhd swap for sure. I just think it will cost me way more than the car will ever be worth. So for now, I'm not sure what the plan will be. Luckily, I'm not in a big rush

No offense intended to the OP, as they seem to have received this car in progress of conversion already, but...

Am i the only one that thinks converting an already LHD car to RHD here in the USA is completely fucking retarded?

Yes, mitsuturbo, you are the only one. Have seen several nice examples of LHD cars being converted to RHD, just takes lots of time and dedication to get all the parts. Personally, would love to do a mirage to evo 5 or 6 swap someday.

So - I now have a fresh title for this thing in my name, and decided to dig a little into it's past.

link Looks like it may have not been on the road since 2002?

Also - Does one of the former owners still have the matching rocker panel covers and 1 rear dogleg for this thing? (Mr. Jordangvr4 probably?) The previous owner tells me that he forgot them in NY when he picked the car up.

Some thing I saw in the starion forums was a front stearing swap from a 240sx (s14). They cut up a starion and 240 subframes an welded together. I haven't looked into it more than that but I thought a 240sx subframe would be a great start for a rwd swap. If I don't buy a gen coupe, a rwd swap into a Gsx will be my next project.

Can somebody tell me what this grille was originally attached to and what it might be worth? I think I would much rather have a stock VR4 one. Is that weird?

I tried to open the gas filler door on this car this morning to see if it had a gas cap on it. Unfortunately the keys that I have don't match the lock on the gas filler door. So - any previous owners have the proper key for this thing?
