    First RH drive I've seen as well for one of these. It's always interesting to me how they do this on cars that were not manufactured RH drive. I always like looking at what all was "mirrored."

    They're pretty cool.  I only find them in Australia and New Zealand though.  I figured they'd be all over Europe, but nope, only occasionally do I see one there.
    Here's one I had on my Cardomain pages that gives a better look at the setup -

    It's odd how none of the dash tops are cracked or broken there.  For years I've been trying to import at least one or two, but nobody will ship them to me.

    Speaking of importing parts, I'm working on getting a pair of 79 Euro tail lights and a Euro dash cluster.  The speedometer goes up to 200!        .....    Kph, lol.  Laughing   
    Anybody here interested?
