Whats the main bit you're having trouble with from that list?

Well Iím yet to see someone do a conversion in a standard length steel front, in a RHD, with an all speed frame.. not sure it will actually fit

I guess Iím unsure about the fittament of the engine in the allspeed frame.. and also how much of the frame sticks out

There are a few standard length front Allspeed builds on here but no doubt most of the pics lost to Photobucket issue. As far as I am aware they are all build with removeable fronts and believe me you will struggle to do anything with a fixed standard length front.

The engine fits under a standard length front using the Allspeed standard length front cross bar. You need to shave the steering rack cover down and fit a countersunk hex bolt to clear the diff for RHD. Also you need to make two small cuts in the front panel under the bumper to clear the frame.

You will need to either fit ITBs or have the plenum modified to clear the bulkhead or modify the bulkhead to clear the plenum.

You'll need a custom exhaust manifold which runs closer to the block to fit behind the grill. You can fit the standard manifold but you'll have to space the grill, use the Clubman front crossmember from Allspeed and cut out the front panel behind the front registration plate.

You also need to figure out bracketry for the Alternator. You either have to fit it backwards under the wing or use a bracket from Minitec in the US or KJB Fabrications in the UK to fit the alternator behind the engine next to the bulkhead.

You will also need to remove most if not all of the inner wings.

You will also struggle to fit a suitable radiator. Some people have managed to use the Civic rad but it is very tight, you might not be able to get it to fit without having a removeable front

Not speaking from experince yet only research but the replacement clutch slave kits seem to help a lot in the rad clearance area

Thanks for the info Oz. I was hoping to actually see pics of someone who has managed to fit it in..
