Just looking at the new parts list it would be possible to convert your 12R5.1 Inline Version with minimal parts needed.

From what i can see you will need

1 x 4700 Motor Mount Bulkhead
1 x 4701 LR Bulkead
1 x 4702 Motor Mount Brace
1 x 4703 Upper Pod Plate
1 x 4704 Chassis Brace
2 x 4705 Front Bulkhead
1 x 4707 Side Sprig Retainer
1 x 4708 Damper Tube
1 x 4709 Damper Tube Shaft
1 x 8828 Cup Set
1 x 31322 Arm Mount Bushing

I think that is all (someone correct me if there is anything missing)

Kind regards,

Chris

You can upgrade a little at a time. If you were to install the damper tubes you would have a very similar car to the 12R5.2. Then you can add the other items over time to bring it up to full spec.
