I stand by my comments.  It _is_ possible.

But with fourteen right hand drive cars for sale in the current UK newsletter, 
it's hardly practical.  Sell the LHD, buy one of the UK RHDs and spend the 
money you save on renovations and tweaks. The bulkhead is a pretty significant 
component, and swapping one out to the satisfaction of someone like me is a 
major ($$$$) job.
