What did you do bracket-wise? I assume some could be relocated from their LHD position, but how about the large one the column attaches to? That one is handed in shape and is welded on to a raised lump in that upper area below the windscreen that is specific to RHD or LHD. As per top left of this pic:



Did you recreate that raised portion? Looks like there might be some cuts and welds in that area in one of your pictures.

Yes, I used all the brackets I could from the LHD, had to make the upper pedal box brackets, made the centre one from 3mm plate also yes to raised portion for the pedal box to slide in.

Yes Derrick I am a welder, ive built a lot of Zs over the years, noticed over the years that certain panels are hard to find so I decided to start making some panels for the Zs. The fabricating is a new venture for me and ime enjoying it alot, already on to floor pans and rear landing panels as well as the bulkhead stuff, I`ll be putting all this stuff on to a web page soon to see if its going to be worth doing it, Maybe lead to other fabricating projects, we`ll have to wait and see
