A good tint shop should be able to fix that issue.

Also what I thought, but in the PNW it is probably a pretty cool car to have. Not so much in the southern climates.

The shifting pattern is still the same as a LHD right? First being left and forward?

Yes. And the clutch is still on the left. It really isn't tough at all to get used to.

I drove a RHD Skyline once, very briefly. In fact, I think you were there, Six. It was at an AutoX event at an airfield down in FL.

It wasn't difficult, it just felt a bit weird. Like the first time you engage in a really long, passionate, tongue-involved kiss with your sister.

I'd think that the whole "going backwards through the McDonald's Drive-Thru" thing would be stranger.

yeah, in the UK i was no longer thinking of it being "driving on the wrong side of the road" within 10 miles. it quickly became just "the other side of the road". here in the US, what would
suck would be following a big slow truck on a two-lane road, and being afraid to stick your nose out to see if you could pass.

Yeah it definitely has it's challenges but the physical driving and shifting is super easy to get used to

I saw that comment, and I saw what he did there. But after two consecutive weeks of national conventions, I elected to lead by example and ignore it.

[notforreal]Wait did I just say that? My god. Joe Perez, you prevert. You should be deported immediately. Share some of your cigars with GodlessCommie when you're hiding from the Gestapo together.[/notforreal]
