Default Thinking about going RHD on my WRX

So ive got the money to do a RHD conversion on my bugeye, just not sure how much of a pain in the ass its going to be. I figure I would just buy a jdm front clip with 6spd and do a full swap motor tranny and all... Any thoughts, or suggestions to watch out for?

-I miss the junkies, my new scene is starting to get tired of me saying back when i was in cali with my junkies lol...

I just want to do something you don't see every day, and i want/need a new motor and tranny so i might as well buy an entire front clip for 7k and get all the extras lol. i figure the full 6spd swap would cost me 6k alone. If I do it, ill post the build.

Buy the clip and just do the swap, sell the left overs.
