3rd Generation RHD conversion

Hey, has anyone thought of doing a RHD conversion to their camry? Or know what difficulties might be involved (both technically and budgetarily)? This idea just popped into my head, and I figured it'd make good discussion material lol

Front clip? sorry for sounding like a noob, but I don;t know what that refers to exactly... I meant the interior lol

why in the name of god would ya want to do that. in what way would it benifit you? all i can tell is that it would make driving harder. in a silvia or supra or other popular JDM or EDM car i can see it but not a canadian camry...or any camry for that matter. the shipping alone on the parts would be A LOT considering where they'd have to come from...even more if you do a whole front clip(the whole front of the car as one assembeled piece). spend that money on a turbo or more visual mods.

ahaha it just popped into my head
though it'd make it stand out a bit
not to mention how it would trip people out when you get in on the wrong side

money is going to a SC first though, and them maybe a turbo on top of that (when I have enough cash)
posted an idea about a Eaton M90 blower in my Twincharging thread

the project maby(if it were another cooler car)...but it wouldnt be fun explaining why you wasted so much money and time on such a useless projet. and if theres RHD camrys in canada then thats even LESS reason to do it...not as origional as ya think.

gothmog...a 5 speed boosted camry is shock value enough. ya got the 5 speed part so just go from there.

Thumbs up

Eh, true enough, although I should also try scrounge up an LSD to go with the blower (or just save up the $1300 + charges for the Quaife one)
but I'm keeping that link for spring break/next summer, when I have more $$$ and time to waste

Ive got an Idea much cheaper than that. Just go to photobucket, upload your pic of the interior, flip the picture and enjoy your new right hand drive.

You'd stand out more with a nicely modded Camry, with or without a supercharger, than you would with a RHD Camry. IMHO, leave the RHD for Skyline's and Silvia's.
