I was just wondering does anyone know if Patrick has converted the S10 he bought off Del Boy at the end of last year?

Austin got excluded because one of the parts used for the conversion was not a homologated part.

All conversions done by prodrive and M-sport for there respective cars are fully holmologated. They will pass scrutiny used not only in ireland but in the world championship too.
The conversions Harper do are not 'legal' conversions for the world championship but will pass strutiny here in ireland.

Prodrives right hand drive conversions are done by running a series of shafts and knuckles from under the steering column across under the dash and go out through the bulkhead where the steering column was for when it was left hand drive . The Harper right hand drive conversion is done by drilling a hole straight out through the bulk head for the steering column and uses a right hand drive steering rack . The Prodrive conversion is done this way so there would be no problems with homologation as it still uses a left hand drive steering rack . There are only a few cars done this way Eamons old S9 , McNultys S10 and Paddy whites S9 , don't know of any more . Next time you see any one of these in service and the drivers door is open , get down on your knees and have a look under the dash and you will see what i mean - a nice bit of engineering :)

I dont think it will make a difference for Elliott what side the steering is on, I cant see him getting the better of Breen/Donnelly/ETC........

Homologation rules state that the hole in the bulkhead for the steering column must not be moved! Harpers drill the hole on the right hand side of the bulkhead and install a right hand drive steering column. Prodrive keep the left hand drive steering column but they move the hole an inch and a half to the right of the car! Is prodrives method legal for homolagation??
