These vans are perfectly useable here in a LHD configuration. Just get the Doka and drive it as is.

Most of its fairly straightforward, you can swap pedal box, dash pod steering etc over(not steering rack)

Run new clutch and brake lines and clutch lines , run throttle cable , this is all fairly easy , the floor is the same but part of the bulkhead is shaped around the steering, you would probably need to change that though it’s not a huge part, steering bevel box mounts are there , need a RHD dash , a few heater control bits , I would say a couple of days work
