I've been planning to mark up the drilling spots on the wings soon... Sean - thankfully it doesn't matter what you think in legal terms. We should be thankful that they can be done without significant structural interference with the shell. Also bear in mind that suggesting such an ID swap would in practice mean a whole load of RHD converted cars losing their regs, going through BIVA and having their values destroyed with Q plates if they could pass the test. Given the uncertain atmosphere over next year's MOT changes and modifications, casting public doubt on the status of conversions from the safety of France is dangerous territory as the DVLA are hardly known for common sense and reason. You need to let it go and move on - you have your view, and we all disagree with you and that is unlikely to change.
