408wdy's RHD EF9 build

Well here it is guys n gals, 408Wdy's Right hand drive conversion,
shaved, wire tucked, brake line tucked engine bay.
this is the whole sha-bang, from begining to end, took three weeks, for disassembly, reassembly shaving, tucking, paint and re assembly of the whole car.
starting date was september 13th, day the rhd front clip landed on his front porch. and target date was october 10th, for San jose's "the spirit of japantown's" jdm theory car show. remember this was in a three week time frame. and here it goes. happy viewing.
first was the shipment. teardown, engine removal, preperation etc, etc

right after cleaning about a miles worth of seam sealer, and drilling through about a thousand spot welds, viola!

and all the jdm metal carnage that was left...

then it was time for removal, and preperation of the beloved "cream machine"

then it was time to fit and permanently attach the RHD fire wall.

Total firewall exchange took 4days.

next up was to prep, and shave the engine bay. using a whole-lotta spot welds, and a light skim of metal glaze....

to get to this

next was wire and brake tuckage. woody sought out to make his own wire harness extentsions for this.

in turn you get this...

Next up was brake lines, courtesy of Mr. chasebays him self.

after brakelines and extension harnesses were done, the chassis was ready for paint,
but with a set of SSR MKIII's to be colored matched.

now for paint. woody decided to go with a two-toned color scheme.
with negative critisism, woody decided to proceed with his idea, with cream on the top shock towers/apron, and gloss black for the lower half and frame rail...

the mkIII's...

now it was time to place the engine in its home. being extra careful not to scratch the very fresh paint

and tharr she blows....

now it was time for re-assembly of the whole car.

the scene pretty much pressed on through the night, with the santa clara county sherrifs shutting down the show for an hour or two (from a neighbors complaint) leaving woody to work in the dark. but he pressed on and continued through out the night. leading to...


completion on the day that was set by the man himself, the day of JDM Theory SJ.

done in three weeks. its not even about finishing in three weeks. it was about being finished.

woody add your special thanks here
