      Just a question...
      I have been trying to do this for years now, and I have no clue as to where to get the parts from?
      Can you possibly tell me where you're getting your parts from?
      I really really want to do this to my 337.
      Thanks!

      Well I can't drop names. But I can tell you the dash is in, the rhd firewall has been welded in and the steering rack and everything is in place. He is waiting on the rest of his bodywork to be done and then paint. Trust me when it's a car you won't miss.
      Lower it.

      Yupp. A lot of bodywork going on in the bay. I can't wait to see yours also. I wish I had the money to do this.
