    HI GUYS , i have visited your forum a number of times now and have read some great threads.i visited the u.s late last year and purchased 2002 silverado reg cab short bed.It arrives in australia this week and because of our road traffic rules it has to be converted to right hand drive. Once that is done it will be motor and trans out and replaced by a 427 small block [600 hp ] with a turbo 350 and gearvendor over drive.
    would be interested if anyone has already done that

He too had to convert everything to right hand drive and posted pic of the whole thing.. He said it costs about $12 G's USD to get it done.... Please tell us all about it when you doit.....

    Welcome from Texas.... It is a great club. That is quite a job converting it to righthand. I guess they must sell the dash board that you need. Have fun with you new ride.
