Re: Buying versus restoring

As Simon says, its better to spend more on an original car than on a car that needs work. Welding & painting are very labour intensive and can turn out to be very expensive, especially if you dont do the work yourself. And nearly always find a restoration will involve a lot more work (and money) tha...

Re: Converting 2500 from left hand drive to right hand drive

Initial thoughts are that this is a non-starter. So many parts different from LHD to RHD, not least the bulkhead layout that carries things like clutch & braking system hydraulics, steering column, pedal box, dashboard, wiring harness to name just a few problems.
