Increadible build. Never thought enough to look it up, but now I know the gas pedal stays on the right and brake pedal to the the left, instead of being flipped like a mirrored reflection of left-hand drives.

I was curious about that myself before I rented a manual transmission car in Australia years back. All the pedals are oriented the same way & the shift pattern is also the same. I assumed that the shift pattern would be reversed (1st gear top right) but it was not.

Yellow 08 Ford e350 eb50 Sportsmobile - Conversion to Right Hand Drive

I drove a 1976 Chrysler Valiant ute when I was down there a lifetime ago. Foot pedals the same. Three on the tree. Left side of the column. Turn signal on the right. Took a lot of focus to get going. Same pattern as up here. Up and closer to you was reverse, down was first, and up and away was second , and down from there was third. Now try that with your left hand. Turn right and drive on the wrong side. Tricky after a few...

Doug's van has left the trans shifter on the right. Likely because the rules don't dictate it being swapped to the left. Even the wiper pivots will have been moved though.

Very observant with the Wipers!

Having driven a 2011 Chev Silverado 2500 srw left hand drive in Australia, that's interesting for us sitting on the wrong side and driving on the left, but driving in the US on the right hand side, sitting on the left, is even more mind boggling. But the controls side(gears & indicators), is the same as the US, here in Australia, but the Germans & French, like to be different.
But for me, as a left hander, sitting on right hand side, with the gear stick to the left, is perfect! For right handed Americans sitting on the left, with the gear stick to the right is perfect as well. Win, win!

What are the converters doing with the side-view mirrors? Are they creating convex glass for the left-hand side mirror, or will both the left and right mirrors be flat glass?
