I look forward to see your build !
As the 041 is not built anymore, this could replace mine if I crash it one day.

Did you swap the front and rear brake lever position from the right to left ?

I run front brake on the right. Always run this setup.

It is called "Moto style".
When I see the caliper on the left side of the front wheel.
And the strange shape the left front brake hose make.
I'm sometimes wondering if Moto style wasn't the initial setup.

Isn't this setup more common in countries that have car driving on the left ?

That's right, that's me I drive on the left down here in Australia. Got the bike out for a small ride today. First time on a bike in a couple of months. It feels really good, can't wait to give it a good shake down on some trails. Bike came in at 9.9kgs which surprised me as I didn't try to build this light. Will get a few more rides in first but I think I might end up changing to a 120mm fork.
