    so i was bored and on hmotors and realized that i can get the whole front clip for my 90 civic hb for 550.00 plus shipping and i was kind of stoked. im seriously considering ordering this. def. would be the only rhd car in my area besides the mail lady! hahah....but i am hoping im not getting into deep with this and with my car being freshly painted could this mess anything up besides the engine bay?

    from a logistics point, the novelty wears off very fast. i've had a couple rhd cars. it's not a hard conversion to do per se, but it just attracts too much bad attention, makes drive throughs tough, creates blind spots, etc.

    you wont mess anything up, you just have to know how to basically rebuild a whole front end.

    Or unless everytime you wanted to eat you would have to go to a place with drive-thrus on both sides, like the Chik-fil-a and the checkers in the town next to where I live.

    Don't listen to the tired "you can't go through drive thrus easy" anti-RHD argument. Just shows how lazy most people are and how bad most people eat. Just be a normal person and park and walk. You'll probably get out faster anyhow and you won't be as fat as they are.
