Conversion TimeCalendar time was about 1 1/2 years but that long period was more my doing. I treated it like a hobby and could only devote a little bit of time each week to the project.
Conversion Cost~ $8,000. Will include a better breakdown later.
I have been taking it around town and it is great. Still work to be done but it is drivable!
