When doing the swap do you cutout the panel where the steering column goes through or do you just cover it up with the new panel (I assume cutout). Is that panel reused for the swap to LHD or do you just remake it completely?

 

Mine was butchered on my 4dr and I made a patch panel out of thicker metal, but now I'm wondering if there is a better method.

On with the right hand drive conversion.

 

Start with this little time consuming plate. It needs to 180 of what it is. 4 nuts need to be removed and welded to the opposite side. Also is flanged, in the center. the flanges need to be flip to the other side. And lastly has a curved area at the bottom

I used the old steering column to make sure the 4 nuts went where they needed to be exactly

The fire wall it self also needs to be flanged. All of these flanges make this are of flat metal stronger
