Good start, just wondering how you plan on making it awd? do you have an awd shell you are swapping everything into, or rewelding a floor pan?

It seems a strange choice to do a floor pan swap in a sedan that can be purchased in Australia with an AWD driveline already?

Why not just save the money and find an AWD sedan.. will surely work out cheaper.

No matter how hard you try, a round peg is always easier to put in a round hole than a square peg :roll:
By the time you find all the parts you need, you could have found 10 AWD sedans to play with, they arent exactly unicorn testicles :lol: :lol: :lol:

it is possible to find an AWD sedan... and it will be ALOT cheaper doing that than converting a FWD to AWD
