    Hey bud, doing it myself atm, rad support needs to be cut so radiator sits lower, you can buy the panel from burtons or ask around local, the top slam panel needs to be trimmed back, exhaust is different side, alternator wiring needs to be changed to otherside and re run fuel hose to the oposite side for carby, i believe the clutch fork needs to be spaced out yesterford sell them!! Your best bet is to get a complete 2 litre running donnor car for all the bits, throttle cable, clutch, speedo cables, radiator hosez ect motor and gear box, ive got a 2 litre spare if your chasing one??cheers brad
