Years ago there was a german website of somebody doing the same thing.
What i remember, it was a realy tight fit.

That car in Belgium is a 1980? Does anyone know if it could easily be imported into the U.S.? What is the price? I saw what I think is 8000.00 Euro's,but I could be wrong. It appears to be LHD which would make my life easier here in the U.S. What is the difference between an 808,and an 818?

it is lefthand drive and besides de 1 in de middle (because of a lawsuit from peugeot, who claims de 0 in the middle), there are no big differences as far as i know.
