The rear axle is held on with 4 large bolt and the rear shocks, easiest way to do it is find a donor car and take the axle complete with the brake bias valve and swap it onto the campus.

Another option to do is leave the campus axle on like i have, handles ok from what i've felt so far and the drum brakes work well enough too (no siezing calipers as usual).

Do you mean drivers side or passenger side mate?

Are you using gt clocks on the dash? If so pull dash out and swap the loom over mate, you may have to change the chassis leg loom too if yours doesn't connect up correctly as some campus looms are different to turbo.

as for dash wiring use a test light and find your lives and earths. You may need a pin removing tool and dash plugs so you can rewire. If i lived near ya would have lent you a hand being an auto electrician LOL

I can't remember if you do or not need to change the chassis leg loom mate, best thing is to keep the gt one just incase.

Also the rear loom will be different abit different on the drivers side so worth keeping that from the gt shell too.

The tanks are identical on the outside, only the gt has a baffle in there.
You will need the gt pump though, sender unit is same on campus 1.4 and turbo so no need to swap that either

Hondaman - out of interest, is your 5 a campus lookalike?

Just that I sold one a while back with a similar mileage on the clock. If it is - is it blue? :)

i have done this conversion myself, i have uesd the original dash loom from the 1.4 gts, while using the gt clocks, all working fine.had to add a couple more relays ie fuel pump, also found that there is a bracket for a brake bias, i swapped all brakes,suspension torsion bar etc for gt items, had to change engine loom, driver side loom (inside the car) for the fuel pump
