your best bet would be to get a half cut and swap the firewall and all other parts to your chassis this way you will get the cross member steering rack gas cable brake lines clutch lines dash and under dash ducting (if you use it) and wiring which are the main parts.

This seems like so much work....rather import one from Japan. Out of curiosity.....what is the purpose of this conversion?

^^^ Ditto.

The amount of time and money you'll spend on finding all the parts needed to do it, you could easily just buy one thats already imported.

Plus with how common it is to import cars now-a-days, its super easy to find a company that can do it for you.

Having a clip would definitely be the best route to go, but its a matter of finding one that would be the issue.

I don't think I've ever seen a RHD AE86 front clip for sale, unlike all your Civics and Integras.

My RHD conversion was a front clip. But I went over board I wanted a full internior so I get JDM black seats, sun visors, power windows, etc. It looks authentic.

Interesting!

Just out of curiosity, how did you go about getting a RHD front clip like that? Did you specifically contact someone to source one for you?

There's a few engine importers in my area but the only clips I see them sell are Hondas.

It used to be a lot easier to find a AE86 front clip 10 years ago
your best bet would be to talk to an importer in FL or TX
I see clips for sale but they are usually in Malaysia
to completely change the car over you would need to do all the wiring as well
