Re: Right hand drive conversion
Interesting question.... Not based on any knowledge of the floorpan on the LHD Q4...but until someone puts me right, I'd make a guess that the pressings are going to be very similar to the RHD version of the same model year 155...so conversion shouldn't be that difficult. At a guess, if I was doing it, I'd start with the Q4 plus a comparable year model RHD car as a donor for all those odd bits of linkage, trim etc that you'll need. Worst case on the brakes & clutch and you'd have to fit someting like a Tilton (or Wilwood) floor mounted pedal set and re-plumb accordingly.
Like I say, interesting question.
Possibly pertinent is that the RHD conversion for Integrales was always regarded as pretty straightforward apart from sourcing a suitable steering rack. Seem to recall 'people' saying that the feel was never right due to different rack ratio though.
...right, that should stop the web forum from moaning I haven't posted lately.......
Good luck...and go for it!
