Hi, yes I am trying to convert lhd to rhd although I'm not sure that I will have much luck. I don't suppose you may have any experience of doing so or anyone else for that matter? The car is a 1967 1300 junior (105 gt, Guilia sprint gt). Thank you for your suggestions and taking your time responding to my post. Kindest regards.

it will be a big task....just that dash alone will be really difficult and expensive to source
is yours like this '68... or does it have a black dash?

I drove 25 years in the UK with my lhd 62 sprint, never had a problem.
(and to be honest when it comes to resale an original factory RHD is one thing, a conversion is another)

Still, no harm looking around for the spares first, as you are doing, before you start cutting things apart;)

When the alloy parts were removed from their molds in the factory as they cool they developed a glossy sheen. Over time with compromised oil / dirty grease saturating over the surface these aluminum parts became stained.
There are various methods that can be used to remove the stains and with some of these methods you eliminate the glossy sheen leaving a frosty look. The glossy sheen is aesthetic, so it's not an issue if you don't care. Of course placing a substance over the frosty look to give it a sheen is not original, although it may look like it from a distance.(only an issue if you are restoring a car)
Some cleaning methods can also damage the machined surfaces leaving them with a frosty look, thus compromising the items integrity where it needs a machined surface to work as intended by the factory. Of course re-machining the surface for a second time may alter the parts dimensions which may or may not impact on the parts performance.

With more and more cars being brought back to life from challenging starting points like the recent Australian RHD GT Sprint which just had floor pans and a firewall and a roof, will have owners chasing parts for years. Owners can choose to buy NOS parts from whom they like to be it sellers running a business or private individuals selling from their private collection, all sellers are providing a service to the market.
What is not obvious to some is that is not enough original parts to go around to fix all the needy cars back to original condition. I think some prices of spare parts reflect the limited supply of NOS spare parts. With the current exchange rates, 105 parts sold from Australia may suit O/S buyers more and thus reduce the supply of NOS parts in Australia and thus drive prices for NOS parts even higher. This current situation I think is analogous to the time when the exchange rates were favorable to O/S buyers and the majority of special interest Australian Alfa Romeos were sold and left Australia decades ago.
Of course reproduction parts and new performance parts are available and may or may not suit your plans for your car.
Regards Steve
