Right hand drive 78 Trans AM
Posted by cdrw on Saturday, January 20, 2018 8:38 AM

Has anyone attempted to build a Right hand drive 78 TransAM? 

At a Cruise night last summer. A Gold TA righthand drive rolled in. Built here in US, shipped to New Zealand in 78. Made its way back to States in 2001. 

Going to attempt the build. Any resin cast dashboards in righthand drive 1/24-25 scale?? around. If I have to cut I have Three dashboards.

since they were never offered in RHD, it's not something that will be very common. ones in australia are garage conversions. Looks like you chose the hardest dash to convert. Your best bet is probably to slice and dice the LHD dash and swap the dash with the glove box. i've done that before, but they were much more symmetrical dashes, which made it easier.

I like a challenge. Besides, If I mess up, I still have one dash to still make the model. Haha. 

I kinda figured the dash was not available, so it‘s off to slice n piece n see what happenBig Smiles.
