The Philippines imported loads of bBs and crudely converted them to lhd, so crudely in fact that they left the gear shift lever on the same side of the column as it is on the original, RHD bB, but that country may be a good source of lhd lamps.
That's a really good question, I've read up on it and as with most import mods... we basically adjust things to be road legal and forget about it. Lol

I've read you can adjust them in more to the right side but I'll find out when I get there I suppose. I'll take pictures of what the focus point is before I adjust them at all. But the plan is to run either LED or HID bulbs. For now I'll be running the 9003 bulbs and order the aforementioned bulbs afterwards.
