Default Conversion from Tamiya chassis M-02 (rear wheel drive) to M-01 (front wheel drive)

The front-wheel drive M-01 and rear-wheel drive M-02 chassis are symmetrical; Depending on where you mount certain parts, they can be converted from one to the other.

The chassis I have is a 239mm M-02L and I want to convert it to an M-01 with the same parts.

Hubs, steering arms, bumpers and body mounts need to be removed and swapped.

The wheels shafts are also swapped:

the "M-01L" already assembled:

The steering servo rod needs to be lengthened as the servo is now located behind the battery. For this I have used some electronic circuit board spacers that also had the same thread as the rod:
