If this is a fucking problem for you, then you need to consider what else the car needs. Think about these, for example:

New Bushings? Does your car drive like crap?
New brakes? (A really nice set of rotors, pads, lines, fluid)
Chassis mods? (Ties, bracing, anything like that to make the car more rigid - you're dealing with 20 year old metal here)
A nice set of wheels? (something that will set the car apart)

Doing a RHD conversion on a USDM car is fucking stupid. Are you aware of the differences of a real RHD car and a converted car? Unless you're spending alot of money (you'd be better off just BUYING a real RHD car, from the factory) you're going to end up with problems. The main differences are these: One is a nice, factory example of a car in which everything is properly installed and done correctly the first time. The other, is a hackjob and a mess, of factory and non-factory installation, and worth nothing.

Waste of time - see other mods that are availble for car, and purchase those.

besides the flaming, moody does have a point, doing a rhd conversion the easy way is by getting the entire front clip and then changing everything out, it's a complete bitch and even done the right way doesn't look right.

I agree with moody, if you have extra money, fix everything that needs to be fixed and then do mods, reasonable mods.
