Nice but what's the purpose of converting it to RHD?

Any problems with the rear brakes? We're curious about that.

Yeah, did you build an adapter bracket for the rear caliper? Or slotted the rear upright's bracket to hold the caliper?

Taylor did the conversion. he cut and re welded a new rear tab for the upright's caliper mount.

Ah. For those of us with Z32 uprights that's a bit more work. Good to see it done though.

More pics will come

Made it right hand drive because the weight distribution and wind vortex matrix of the drver on the right in a conv was ideal equation for an end result of an increased bling factor. Turns more heads being that this is a company demo car

The rear brakes were actually fabricated up by doug including a working parking brake. Not terribly difficult but not for the average DIY project

The car is for show/street/drift/etc. It will be Dougs personal car. It will get a cage. Should be done next month along with my s14 which i will also post up soon

Sorry for digging this post up from the past, but I am looking on some more information on the 350z brakes on the S-Chassis.. Anyone else do this?

What information are you looking for? Rear needs a bracket or spindle mod as stated above. Fronts need spindle mounting holes drilled out to 14mm and new caliper hardware.

I have 300zx, took me 1hr MAX to mount mine (both sides). Required enlarging the upright hole, but nothing else.

*****in car man, i was wondering if you had any details on how the RHD conversion took place... like how they cut the firewall and if there were any problems they ran into? (structure, fitment, etc...) thanks
