    Sold my s14 which I had previously beams swapped and bought this drift ready is300 caged shell. I will definitely need some angle mods was looking into the ez knuckles, anybody have experience with them?

    Also big thing for me is doing a RHD swap since I just feel more natural and comfortable on the right, ordered most of the parts to do it, trying to modify the lhd dash but I might need a dash if somebody has one. Also what is everybody using instead of photobucket for image hosting, haven't been on forums in years.

    If you want to follow you can sub to my youtube channel I'll be putting videos out on there, here's a walk around of the lexus

    Seeing as most people on this forum are from the UK, I'm sure someone would be able to send you the parts you need for a RHD swap, even down to the rack.

    Thanks I've already sourced a rack and already started the rhd swap by moving the steering column over, gas pedal will be the stock one moved over and clutch pedal too, the brake pedal I ordered a wilwood inverse pedal with dual master cylinders with a brake bias bar. I made a bracket that needs to get welded in to hold the steering wheel, i'm still trying to get the wheel as straight as possible.

    as for the dash I started to hack up the stock lhd one to see if i can flip it over

    How did you do your rear calliper set up? Is it two is300 callipers or a mix match of another calliper?

    Good work on that! Bit of fiberglass and no-one would ever know. Impressive stuff so far!

    I bought the car with the dual calliper already done, I know one of the callipers is a rs200 altezza 2piston and the other no clue, but it's a 2piston calliper, front a mk4 supra 4piston calliper so maybe 2piston mk4 rears but no idea, i'll have to ask my buddy I bought the shell off of.

    If you wouldnt mind asking him that would be great. Could you find out please if it was an off the shelf bracket he used to mount the two callipers or a custom job? Thanks

    Ya going to try melting the plastics together from underneath with wiremesh and add some urethane and fiberglass to fill, then flock it once done, should be alright.

    next time I see him i'll ask if he knows
