I guess this question is directed mainly at Richard, but does anyone know whars involved in the conversion?

I'm not too worried about wiring and the pedals as that can be rerouted. But would really like to know how to convert the steering.

I did have some contact with a chap on ebay who was selling a LHD 303 in the UK with apparently a 'kit of parts' to do the conversion, but the kit sold with the 303 and the guy never got back to me with details.

I'm told the conversion is relatively straightforward but I've never spoken to anyone who's done it. It's been almost 4 years since I sold my TGB but I'll try and help.

The dash, wiring, pedals and steering column will all swap over with lots of legwork. The floor should have a steering column access panel on the right but watch out for the heater unit getting in the way. I think the steering box will fit either way or be engineered to.

The wipers will be wrong and may cause an MOT hassle unless you can sort that.

The biggest problem will be getting a set of RHD steering bars - they are impossible to find and it will certainly be easier (and probably cheaper) to have some made.

Good luck and document it - it may be of interest to others.
