I have a 4 door sedan that is factory RHD and a Sedan Delivery that is converted to RHD.

Just a question: on a right hand conversion does the instrument panel get replaced or modified

Basically it's just a "cut and tuck" operation depending on weather it's a 55/56 or a 57 dash where the whole dash is switched over. The instrument panel does not need to be modified
