Didn't the blue JDC car come 3rd place at this year's Pebble Beach?

Too many questions and not enough answers!

It uses the same floor pan and bulkhead. It's more a case of what is left out such as the seat pans so there is no place for the "normal" gearshift to sit. The major change for the conversion is the steering column mounting and the rack mounting.
