Yes an off the shelf for BB are available, but the RHD part ?

Whether they would sell you a kit less the rack ?

I would like to do R&P on my 78,  of course only a SBC, but is RHD.

We did have a member with a C3 who built a well engineered R&P set up, he was over Coogee way, cant remember his name.
He had documented his whole process c/w pics, but have lost contact .

Keep us informed.

Hello all 
I trust you are all coping well  in this very difficult time we are living in.
  As we deal with the new reality of our society, following from the COVID-19 invasion. 
Itís important to reach out to family and friends  to just say hello and have s chat.
 
   Be carful when you have to go out.  Soap is an essential  buy it first.but only what you need.

Easiest way is use a Camira centre take off rack and mirror the steeroids conversion. You need the long travel to get lock. I used a Commodore rack with engineer shortened arms. While I was doing it I got rid of the bumpsteer and added achermann angles. it was a lot easier with a bare chassis and no springs.

Be interesting to see the build, RHD rack will not be an off the shelf purchase, have you talked to an engineer to see if they will sign of on that mod.

Hi Shane
Good to see you got home  safely,
Unfortunately  people have short memories, and the attitude towards your selfs is not australian.

 We Australians are in deep  faeces, I believe for a protracted time  frame.

Our federal government was to slow to act , and our state government?  Ruby princess debacle says it all.

 We are back in the 1918 time frame and protocols to deal with this virus.
  Then 1929 came along,
History does tend to repeat itself.
